No introduction is needed as Venice speaks for itself! The architecture - buildings, palaces, churches, towers and piazzas – built on top of ancient pylons driven into the mud banks is an engineering wonder! With 117 islands, over 150 canals and 400 bridges in the Venetian Lagoon, you will be truly amazed by your experiences in Venice.
Our hotels in Venice are located within all districts of ‘the city of water’; San Marco, Rialto or Santa Croce, the choice is yours! The central landmark is the piazza San Marco. Walk around this beautiful piazza and you will see amazing architecture such as the Doge’s Palace, the Campanile, St Mark’s Clock tower and the Grand Canal. Bask in the glory of the Basilica di San Marco, Venice’s Cathedral since 1807... although construction first began in 828. See the magnificence of its interior and façade which over many centuries has been embellished by the Venetians with precious objects and works of art.
Step outside your Venice hotel and take a vaporetti (water taxi) along the canals and around the islands, where you’ll see that the beauty of Venice is defined from the water. Visit the world famous glassmaking workshops on the islands of Murano. Observe traditional glassmaking methods at local workshops and call in on the Glass Museum which is housed in the Palazzo Giustinian. Take a gondola - the symbol of Venice - at sunset and be serenaded along the hidden canals, listening to traditional Venetian music.
For lovers of contemporary art, visit the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in the Palazzo Venier dei Leoni. The collection holds works by some of the greatest 20th century artists such as Picasso, Dali and Miro and holds major works of Cubism, Surrealism and avant-garde sculpture. Lastly, but not least, make sure that you walk over the Rialto Bridge, the oldest bridge across the Grand Canal, and walk off course to find the back streets of Venice... explore to your heart’s content!
With so much see and explore, by boat and by walking, make sure that you give yourself enough time to see and experience all the delights that Venice and our hotels in Venice have to offer.Image Attribution: ppz under Creative Commons
