Flights to Venice

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

Venice’s spires, domes, and palaces offer spectacular views from the water, but the city doesn’t disappoint from dry land, either. The churches and museums are packed with remnants of the days 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 neighborhood hugely popular with locals. It’s easy to spend hours in one of the canal-side cafes or cozy 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 splurge on a canalside 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

See the views from the Campanile

The tallest building in Venice, the Campanile is not quite as old as it looks—it collapsed in 1902 and had to be rebuilt. However, it now has the convenient addition of an elevator, and the view from the top, looking out on the architectural marvel that is Venice, is quite incredible.

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.

Tour the Grand Canal

The Grand Canal is incredible from a vaporetto (water taxi), and a water bus is a cheap but fantastic way to see some of the major sights. Cross the famous Rialto Bridge or go underneath it as everyone watches you glide past, and view the 15th-century palace Ca' d'Oro and the Palazzo Venier dei Leoni from the water.

Where to eat in Venice

Osteria Enoteca Ai Artisti (Italian)

It can only hold 20 diners, but the reason this restaurant is always packed is because of the quality of the food, not just its size. Unfussy home-style Italian cooking using only the freshest ingredients is the mantra, and if you can squeeze in, you’ll find one of the best-value food experiences in the city.

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, reserve one of the two romantic canal-side tables.

Il Ridotto (Italian)

The Michelin inspectors called Il Ridotto “one of the most interesting restaurants in the city” when they awarded it a star, and Gianni Bonaccorsi’s establishment certainly lives up to that billing. With room for just 18, this is authentic Venetian cooking with a modern twist. The desserts are known for being some of the best in town.

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 made 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.

The Gritti Palace

When the world’s cultural elite come to Venice for the many biennales, this is where they try and book a room. A historical yet effortlessly modern hotel with a wonderful roof terrace, it boasts spectacular views over the Venetian lagoon.

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.

Libreria Acqua Alta, Venice

Store manager Gianni Coppola opened Libreria Acqua Alta with owner Luigi Frizzo ten years ago. The shop oozes Venetian character and authenticity, with stacks of books piled in every nook and cranny. Being Venice, the store floods regularly, but the books are protected by storing them in various boats and bath tubs, including a full sized gondola. It’s these quirky details that the bookshop is known for. The store is also famous for its staircase made of encyclopaedias. Read more Libreria Acqua Alta, Venice
