01

The unforgettable city of Venice

Evocative architecture, romantic ambience and charming heritage—a visit to this Italian city is like walking into a painting. Glimpses of artisans at their creative best, cooks whipping up mouth-watering dishes and musicians humming everything from classical tunes to rock, every nook and corner of Venice is steeped in culture, art and history.

Stroll across the Rialto Bridge

This pedestrian stone arch bridge on the Grand Canal is one of the oldest bridges in Venice. A landmark of the city, the 400-year bridge is 75-foot-wide and 24-foot long, and among its most picturesque stretches.

Discover Venice’s history

Once called ‘the drawing room of Europe’ by Napolean, the San Marco Square is the vantage point for city’s well-known attractions. St. Mark’s Basilica (Basilica di San Marco), Doge’s Palace and Torre dell’Orologio form the nerve centre of the city and offer intriguing glimpses of Venice’s glorious past.

Savour a glass of Venetian wine

Even the humbler dining establishments in Venice will surprise you with their selection of fine local and international wine lists. Familiarise yourself with some local favourites, including whites like tocai and soave, and reds such as valpolicella and cabernet franc. In the evenings, grab a table along the canal and savour a few glasses with friends or your loved one.

Climb up the bell tower

Capped by a pyramidal spire, Venice’s bell tower is the city's tallest building and offers travellers spectacular views of the canals, magnificent bridges and historical monuments topped by marvellous domes, from its topmost point. After its collapse in 1902, the 323-foot-tall tower was rebuilt in 1912 and matched its predecessor to perfection. It is now considered to be one of the most iconic spots of the city.

Walk through a dreamy village

With each house painted in a striking and different colour, the fishing village of Burano is a short boat ride away from bustling Venice. Browse through its old-world lace products and enjoy authentic continental cuisine at the roadside eateries, as you explore this colourful village on foot.

Attend grand musicals

The lagoon city is also home to one of the most famous theatres in the continent, La Fenice. Famous for its operas, it has sparkling gold-coloured interiors, and stages some of the most remarkable concerts and performances throughout the year.

Visit the beach

The 11-km-long sandbar of Lido di Venezia is chock-a-block with landmarks like Lido (the venue of the Venice Film Festival) in the north, hotels and casinos in the centre, and Alberoni (housing a vast golf course) to the south. Bustling with bars, restaurants, hotels and shops, Lido di Venezia is a travel magnet primarily because of its sandy beach.
