Venice has long been one of the most talked about, desirable cities in Europe. It’s romantic, it’s beautiful and it’s unlike anywhere else in the world. People dream about going there and now, with this deal, you will have the chance to do exactly that; and in style!
With this deal for £199 from travelzoo.co.uk you will be staying at the 4* LaGare Hotel Venezia for the duration of your 3 night stay. It’s on a little island called Murano Island, which is only a short boat ride from central Venice. This hotel has also received 4.5/5 on TripAdvisor, so it is definitely not a bad idea to stay here!
During your stay you will also be given breakfast every morning. This helps to make you feel a little bit more relaxed and comfortable and allows you to have a few easy and slow mornings without having to rush around; like a holiday should be. However after breakfast you will definitely want to get your act together quickly so that you can explore as much of Venice as you can within your time limit.
It’s really easy to get into central Venice, because your hotel offers you a free shuttle to St Mark’s Square, which is exactly where you want to be to see all of the sites that Venice is so famous for.
St Mark’s Basilica seems like a natural progression of the day in Piazza San Marco (seeing as it’s right there!) There are of course the normal things like the Bridge of Sighs and punting down the small canals. I would, however, recommend some shopping. Not shoes, or clothes (although it is also the perfect place to buy brilliant Italian designer clothes cheaply) but for glass. Venetian glass can be some of the most beautiful centre pieces that you’ve ever seen, even if you don’t buy anything I seriously recommend going into a shop. There is a really good one just off on Piazza San Marco.
Off a side street there is also a really cool traditional Venetian mask shop. With hundreds of different designs these little gems are a small expense and make a perfect memory of your time there. Whilst you’re there, there are always plenty of masked balls going on, so you could actually use your mask!
You definitely won’t get bored whilst you’re here. It is the perfect excuse for you and a friend or your partner to have an adults trip, enjoying wine, good food and seeing all of the sites. What more could you want?
