The beautiful capital of northern Italy’s Veneto region, the unique city of Venice has no roads, just canals – including the Grand Canal thoroughfare – that are lined with grand Renaissance and Gothic palaces dating back hundreds of years. Venice’s main square, Piazza San Marco (St. Mark’s Square) is home to the awe-inspiring Basilica di San Marco (St. Mark’s Basilica) and the famous Campanile bell tower. Venice offers much to see and do in the way of attractions and activities, glorious architecture, world-renowned galleries and museums, and award-winning restaurants.

Referred to it as the ‘drawing room of Europe’ by Napoleon, the magnificent Piazza San Marco is an experience in itself and home to three spectacular structures, the Basilica di San Marco (St. Mark’s Basilica), the Doge’s Palace, and the 15th century clock tower, Torre dell’Orologico.

You can’t visit Venice without enjoying a punt down one of the city’s scenic waterways in a gondola guided by a singing gondolier. Other must-dos in Venice include touring the Venetian masters of art such as Titian (c1488-1576), Tintoretto (c1518-94), Canaletto (1697-1768) and Tiepolo (1727-1804) at one of the many outstanding art galleries that house unique and precious repositories of art. In addition to the renowned Italian culinary delights, explore their fabulous wines, aperitifs, prosecco and spento on a secret wine tour.
