Venice Weekend Breaks

Brimming with breath-taking sights, mouth-watering meals, and unique ways to travel around, Venice city breaks take you to another world. Here you can expect plenty of hideaway restaurants boasting stunning views of the canals, unique boutiques selling colourful Murano glass jewellery and plenty of ice-cream parlours to enjoy Italian treats at their best.

As possibly the most romantic city in the world this gem of Italy is perfect for weekend breaks for couples, but with its rich history, culture and scenic sights, this city charms all. Whether you are looking to enjoy a romantic weekend away or a holiday that has the perfect mix of culture, action and relaxation, look no further than venturing to Venice!

Cobblestones and Gondolas

Spanning over 100 tiny islands and surrounded by a sparkling blue lagoon that filters its way through to a labyrinth of city canals, there are plenty of places to explore while on holiday here. Venice city breaks are a popular choice regardless of the seasons; while many flock here during the summer months for its pleasantly warm weather, many are also enchanted by the misty ambience that settles over city during the winter.

Enjoy the atmosphere in San Marco Square before wandering through the narrow winding streets to cosy bed and breakfasts in the heart of the city, or elegant 5-star hotels with views over canals amid some of the most romantic and iconic architecture Europe has to offer. With a booming café and restaurant culture, this is the perfect city break for those who want to experience a lot but get away from it all and relax at the same time.

Treasures in Venice

Venice is filled with treasures just waiting to be discovered. Sightseeing on your city break to Venice is a must; at the top of the list is a visit to San Marco Square. Traditionally a meeting place for Venetians, this famous square is also popular with foreign visitors and is always bustling with activity from flower stalls to cafés. One of the top attractions in Venice is the square’s duomo, a magnificent church marked with beautiful floor-to-ceiling mosaics. While you are there make sure you take in the views from the top of the bell tower. Afterward, sit in one of the many cafés that line the square or buy some seeds and have your photo taken covered with friendly pigeons.

Make your way along the streets which snake their way through the city on your Venice city break and you'll find charming boutique shops selling famous Venetian glass and Carnivale masks. You are also sure to stumble upon a fair share of ice cream shops, too. Another popular sight is the Rialto Bridge. Stand back in awe of the amazing structure or buy a souvenir in one of the shops that line the bridge itself. You can even take to the waters on a romantic gondola ride for a totally different view of the city and watch the world go by.

Out and About in Venice

With all the winding streets, plentiful cafés and shops, you will be amazed with all the things to do in Venice. After a busy day of sightseeing, head back into the centre of town and visit St. Mark's Square when it is lit up; a truly magnificent sight and a lot less crowded. Spend your evening in one of the many bars and cafés in the main square or find a hidden gem in one of the many winding lanes. Venice city breaks just wouldn’t be complete without sampling some of the fine Italian cuisine on offer including delicious wood-fired pizzas, flavoursome pastas and delicious red wine! Another famous bridge is the Bridge of Sighs; myth has it that if lovers share a kiss below, they will find eternal happiness!

Venice city breaks also benefit from a convenient location, with plenty of gorgeous Italian cities located nearby. With so many cities to choose from, you’ll want to make the most of it, and Verona - only 113 kilometres by train from Venice – is the perfect addition for a romantic multi-city break.
