The Floating City needs no introduction. Reclining on a lagoon of over 100 small islands connected by elaborate bridges, Venice is one of the most romantic cities in the world. A luxury holiday in Venice promises fine dining at Michelin-starred restaurants, exclusive hotels with lavish spas, iconic cultural experiences, and Old-World glamour.

Take a classic gondola ride and witness the quintessential sights and attractions that are unique to this city, such as Saint Mark's Piazza and Basilica.

When To Visit

Venice is a place to visit any time of the year with each season adding a different layer of magic. In the spring, you'll find lots of annual festivals like Festa di San Marco and mild weather. In summer, Venice becomes a vibrant, lively city with temperatures above 25 degrees Celsius.

The weather cools down a touch come autumn and the city enjoys a slower pace of life. From February to March you can also join in the world-famous, incredibly vibrant Venice carnival.

Food & Drink

Venetian cuisine is truly some of the finest in the world, especially when you factor in the exquisite views of the grand canals. Try beloved national dishes like wood-fired pizzas, and homemade pasta, and indulge in some of the local cheeses.

You'll also be able to dine on international dishes throughout the city. Enjoy fine dining at a Michelin-starred restaurant and try some fusion cuisine, or sample traditional recipes like squid ink risotto. Just don't forget to relax with a glass of Italian wine and a slice of Tiramisu.

Passport & Visas

British and EU citizens don't need a visa to enter Italy, just a valid passport. As with any holiday, keep your passport safe and perhaps carry a photocopy for identification purposes. Visit GOV.UK for more advice on passports, visas and travel.
