Flights to Venice

Venice is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. After your flights to Venice touch down and you catch a boat from Marco Polo Airport (it’s not a gimmick, but genuinely the easiest way to reach the city centre) it seems almost incredible that this city even exists.

And while Venice’s spires, domes and palaces might offer spectacular views from the water, once you’re on dry land the city doesn’t disappoint either. The churches and museums are packed with the remnants of when Venice was one of the richest trading posts in the world. Around every corner, you’ll find picture-postcard sights, secret squares and secluded alleyways – none of which are choked by cars. Losing yourself in a city will never be so much fun.

Indeed, wandering around without a map or itinerary is part of the experience. How else will you stumble upon Venice’s hidden gems and hole-in-the-wall joints? One of the best areas for a stroll is Cannaregio, a neighbourhood hugely popular with locals. It’s easy to spend hours in one of the canal-side cafes or cosy trattorias watching Venetian life go by. For one of the best views of the city, however, head off the mainland and across to the island where the Bell Tower of San Giorgio Maggiore stands. The vista of Venice and its waterways are spectacular.

It’s impossible not to hail a gondolier or splash out on a canal-side restaurant or hotel with views of the water. It’s absolutely worth it. You’ll never experience anything quite like Venice.

What to do in Venice

Attend a festival

It’s rare to be in Venice and not find yourself in the middle of a cultural festival. The famous Venice Film Festival takes place at the end of August, the art and architecture biennales run for four months in alternate years, and during the third week of July, the city and lagoon are festooned with fireworks.

Visit St Mark's Basilica

A visit to St Mark’s Basilica is essential to understand Venice. It’s a symbol of the city’s status and is packed with precious objects and works of art brought to the city from around the world. Even from outside the building, it’s impossible not to be struck by the rich history.

Go on a gondola

If you don’t have a gondolier taking you along Venice’s famous canals, you’re missing out. To get the full effect, try hailing one from Bacino Orseolo, near St Mark’s Square. For a pared-down experience, there are also cheap gondola ferry rides that cross the Grand Canal.

Where to eat in Venice

Osteria alle Testiere (Seafood)

Chef Bruno Gavagnin goes to the fish market, chooses the best catch of the day, and then cooks it for just 22 people per sitting every evening. This means that the attention to detail and service is remarkable, and that every day at Osteria alle Testiere is refreshingly different.

Ristorante Da Fiore (Italian)

Picture eating out in Venice, and your first image could be of enjoying simple Italian food as a gondolier quietly wends his way past the table. Both of these are possible at Michelin-starred restaurant Ristorante Da Fiore. If you can, book one of the two romantic canal-side tables.

Quadri (Italian)

If it’s a romantic restaurant you’re after, it doesn’t get much better than this Michelin-starred eatery overlooking the Piazza San Marco. The menu from Chef Max Alajmo uses ingredients sourced from the Venice region. Try the hand-chopped raw Piedmontese beef with truffle sauce, anchovies, sea urchin and white truffle.

Places to stay in Venice

Aman Canal Grande

There’s opulence, and then there’s the Aman Canal Grande, famous for being the ‘seven-star’ hotel where Hollywood heartthrob George Clooney exchanged his wedding vows. Most of the 24 rooms overlook the Grand Canal, and features include ceiling reliefs from famous 18th century painters, mirrors, frescos and silk wall coverings.

Centurion Palace

Centurion Palace might look like a classic Venetian palazzo when you gaze at it from the Grand Canal, but inside it’s a plush, modern hotel with 50 stylish rooms. It’s a great base if you want to explore the Venice art scene, with the Guggenheim, Gallerie dell'Accademia and Punta della Dogana just a short walk away.

AD Place

This atmospheric boutique hotel is on a canal, right by La Fenice Opera House. Open the windows and you might hear the singing of gondoliers, or sit on the beautiful roof terrace and take in the view. The friendly staff have plenty of tips to help you get the most from your stay.
