Venice

City of Romance

Virtually unchanged for the last six centuries, Venice is actually a group of islands made famous by a series of canals, bridges, monuments, piazzas, and narrow pedestrian lanes. This is one of the world's most-visited vacation destinations, with endless places to visit and sights to see, so it often feels like the city has more tourists than residents. Despite this, Venice retains its romantic charm, featuring a picturesque setting on a lagoon, exquisite architecture, and priceless works of art. The entire city is a World Heritage site. The absence of cars makes walking around a particularly pleasant experience. The Rialtine Islands, considered the main part of Venice, are small enough that you can walk from one to the other in about an hour--provided you don't get distracted by the city's gondolas, historical buildings, and restaurants. Venice is in City of Venice. Put Venice at the heart of your travel plans by using our Italy online itinerary planner .

Where to stay in Venice

Save money and avoid tourist crowds by booking your accommodation outside the historical center of Venice. Central Venice is full of picturesque canals and narrow lanes, but it is also extremely noisy and hectic throughout the day and late into the night. You can explore the ancient city's charms at your own pace by staying at a comfortable B&B or small hotel located in the city's residential suburbs. To stay close to the finest beaches and restaurants, check into a hotel on the island of Lido, the city's famous seaside resort.
