Print Itinerary
Day 1 Venice

To Venice

Begin your holiday with a flight to Venice. On arrival in the 'Floating City', transfer to your 4-Star hotel in the heart of the city. Venice is synonymous with romance and mystery, having played host to the wiles of wanton Casanova, and to the annual Venice Carnival, a whirl of colourful masks that descends upon the city each spring. With 4 days to explore independently, you'll have plenty of wonderful sights to uncover, all within easy reach of your hotel.

Venice lends itself to idle wandering, and possibly the best way to enjoy its captivating charms is to let yourself get lost in the myriad of winding alleys and twisting lanes that make up the city centre. Like much of Italy, Venice is also known for its fabulous cuisine, so perhaps take this opportunity to enjoy some regional specialties in a local restaurant. Seafood is a key ingredient in Venetian cooking, with indigenous dishes often incorporating salt-cured fish, or in spring, fresh moleche crabs.

Days 2-3 Venice Gondolas

Exploring the Venice lagoon

With two days to discover the delights of Venice, the city's watery world is your oyster. Perhaps treat yourself to a ride on one of Venice's iconic gondolas to experience the city's beautiful architecture. Or simply take a stroll and see where you end up - whether it's a quirky shop, a pretty plaza, waterfront bar, or romantic bridge.

The islands of the lagoon are well worth a visit; you could visit charming Murano, famed for its intricate glass-blowing traditions, or take a trip to Burano, renowned for its vibrantly coloured houses and wonderful Venetian lace.
