Venice


With the world’s most artistic masterpieces per square kilometre, Venice is one of the most visited towns all over the planet. Everyone has read guides or seen pictures of Venice before coming to this city, but in reality, independently of how many times you have imagined this moment, the arrival in Venice is still a revelation. Only once you have discovered this particular city you will be able to understand how unique it is. For those who want to avoid the masses of tourists that land in Venice each midday to spend here just a few hours, the city is best visited early in the morning, when gondoliers warm up their vocal chords on their way to work, or in the evening, when the locals gather in one of the many city pubs to chat over a spritz.

Why Venice?


If you cross the Grand Canal in Venice and walk lazily through the Dorsoduro and the San Polo neighbourhoods, you would be able to see the real life style of Venice and you would fall in love with Venice.


When to go?


The best months for a good weather in Venice are from April to October, however winter in Venice is cold but magical. During the month of February, Venice celebrates one of the most famous Carnivals in the world: do not miss this chance!
