About Venice

Venice has to be one of the most romantic and unique cities in the world, soaked in history and architecture it’s no wonder people continue to flock here. Whether you choose to bask in the city’s marvellous architecture on foot or from a moonlit canal trip, Venice has a way of transporting you into the past.

Once called ‘The City of Masks’, there’s so much to Venice behind the stunning facades of its buildings. From hearing a Vivaldi melody echoed along alleyways in La Giudecca to tasting authentic Venetian antipasti in Murano, Venice is a city of sensory secrets. It’s a city to explore and it’s a city to get lost in.

Sightseeing and must-sees

  • A Gondola ride along the Grand Canal, La Giudecca
    No trip to the city is complete without experiencing the most typical of Venetian sights – travelling past the Gothic and Baroque architecture that lines the Grand Canal, floating along Venice’s main waterway.
  • In-situ masterpieces, Various locations
    Venice was home to many artists, and the work of masters such as Titian, Canaletto and Tiepolo can all be seen in situ, such as Titian’s awe-inspiring 'Assumption' above the high altar at I Frari and Tintoretto's 'Crucifixion' at Scuola Grande di San Rocco.
  • Peggy Guggenheim Collection, Dorsoduro
    Venice’s connection to the art world is alive and well. If you’re in the mood for something a little more contemporary, this famous museum of modern art will keep you inspired with work by Marcel Duchamp, Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dali.
  • St Mark’s Basilica, Piazza San Marco
    The cathedral church of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Venice and the most famous of the city’s churches. This architectural wonder lies at the eastern end of the Piazza San Marco. Its intricate domes are immediately recognisable, as are the floor-to-ceiling mosaics which line the interior.
  • The Doge’s Palace, La Giudecca
    An iconic site in Venice, this was the former home of the city’s rulers, the Doges (or Dukes). The most enigmatic part of the Venetian Gothic palace is perhaps The Bridge of Sighs – its view being the last thing prisoners would see before passing into the interrogation rooms.
