A city unlike any other, Venice never loses its capacity to romance and enchant. With canals for streets, water shimmers everywhere, which reflects many of the historic buildings, fabulous palaces, and churches of what was once a wealthy trading centre between Europe and the Orient. Wandering through the narrow alleyways you will uncover centuries of glorious history, nearly always ending up at the Palazzo Ducale and Basilica di San Marco. The showstopper that is the Piazza San Marco is always a firm favourite with tourists, but this fairy-tale city has much more to offer than its magnificent architecture. Sit back and soak up the atmosphere as gondoliers paddle you along the canals, sip coffee in a sunny square, enjoy a candle-lit dinner, or make the most of happy hour when the bars serve lavish spreads of Venetian tapas.
