Project Description

Venice

What is there to say about Venice that hasn’t been said like the world’s best poets thousands of times over throughout the centuries? This city looks like a romantic dream. No matter how many times you have seen photos and films of Venice, standing there always feels like a dream.

Venice Buildings Canals
Venice Piazza San Marco

Canals take over the place of streets and water shimmers everywhere. The fabulous palaces and churches reflect centuries of history in what was a wealthy trading centre between Europe and the Orient.

Getting lost in the narrow streets is a quintessential part of exploring the City, so make sure you make the best of it. The whole city is listed as a World Heritage Site. Visit the 18th-century Palazzo Grassi and the Doge’s Palace, take a gondola tour around the Grand canal, experience the art-filled with visits to its excellent museums and galleries such as the Fondazione Vedova and the Peggy Guggenheim Collection. End up in Piazza San Marco, where crowds gather for a coffee or an aperitif.

Venice best time to visit

Best Time to visit

Best time to visit Venice is autumn, when hotel prices are affordable and weather is pleasant. You will easily move around the canals, enjoying romantic candlelit dinners and there are no queues for attractions. Summer is very hot and humid and hotel prices are at its highest, with packed narrow alleys. Winter is also a great time for cheap hotel deals, but not during Christmas and Carnival (February) which are popular tourist periods. Good time to visit is also May and June, but it’s high season and prices are the dearest.

Venice budget hotels areas

Budget Hotels Areas

If you are travelling on a budget, avoid Piazza San Marco and the surrounding areas, as hotel prices are high. For cheaper options look near the railway station or Dorsoduro area. The cheapest accommodation is not directly in Venice, but in the neighbouring Mestre on the mainland. Around the airport there are several camping sites and small hotels. It is always best to book in advance for better hotel deals.
