Venice is, unsurprisingly, known as the city of water and is thought to be one of the most romantic places on earth, for good reason. Get lost in the maze of narrow streets and meandering canals, stopping off to sample some delicious bites from hidden eateries and shops or simply float slowly through the city taking in some its 400 beautiful bridges and palazzos. Sights not to be missed are the magnificent St Mark’s Square, a perfect spot for an evening aperitivo, the bustling markets, iconic Bridge of Sighs and the Accademia Gallery. Looking beyond the city itself, escape the crowds and explore the secret, private gardens of Venice otherwise hidden from view, the islands of Murano and Burano are home to the relatively unknown vineyards of the lagoon.

Top Hotels in Venice

Belmond Hotel Cipriani

Located on Giudecca Island with spacious outdoor areas and gardens in a city where such a luxury is hard to come by, Belmond Hotel Cipriani really is one of the city’s grande dames.


Not only is Ca’Sagredo one of the city’s most luxurious hotels, it is also a museum, a private 14th century palazzo and a noble residence.

The Gritti Palace

The Gritti Palace is the most luxurious hotel in Venice; overlooking the Grand Canal, it is a vision of elegance and Venetian style, stooped in history.

Bauer Il Palazzo

Housed in a beautiful 19th Century Venetian palazzo, Bauer Il Palazzo is located right on the Grand Canal and just a short walk from St Mark’s Square in the heart of the city.
