One of the most charming cities that I know is definitely Venice. It’s a great destination for a city break doesn’t matter if you only want to explore the stunning and unique beauty of Venice or just want to spend a romantic time with your beloved one. You can book your city break on groupon.co.uk with flights from London Stansted to Venice Airport and the stay in a 4-star hotel for only £189 per person.
You are going to spend your city break in the 4-star Le Boulevard Hotel (62% on TripAvisor) that is only 10 minutes from the Piazza San Marco and therefore almost in the heart of Venice’s historical city centre. You just need to take a vaporetto which is the little boat that takes you from A to Z and that is much cheaper than the “gondola”. You can board on the vaporetto almost directly at your hotel because the vaporetto-station Santa Maria Elisabetta is just a stone’s throw away. The hotel offers a good value for the money and during the summer you can enjoy the Adriatic sea from the beautiful location at the beach of Lido.
Once your stepping outside to see Venice your city break provides you unbelievable charming buildings. Due to the long rule of the Doge Venice is one big museum blessed with magnificent churches and many other tourist attractions. You can do a classical gondola ride on the Grand Canal and get enchanted by the beauty of the Rialto Bridge. If you walk over the bridge you will enjoy a picturesque view of the houses on the banks of the laguna. As you are so close to the Piazza San Marco you shouldn’t miss to lionise the mighty Basilica di San Marco which is a masterpiece of the Byzantine architecture. Wish you a great time here!
