What's included in this trip
Bite-size Break - Venice SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Built over a hundred small islands connected by 400 bridges, Venice is an artistic masterpiece with charming canals, incredible architecture, an enticing cuisine and a fascinating cultural tradition.
The outstanding agritourism region of Marca Trevigiana is centred on the quaint town of Treviso, reputedly the birthplace of the much-loved dessert, tiramisu.
Venice is home to the iconic Rialto food markets, which have been trading for centuries, and one of Italy’s foremost wine-producing regions, best known for varietals including Bardolino and Valpolicella.
There are only two ways to explore Venice - by boat or on foot. Wander the narrow, cobblestone streets and spacious piazzas, where shops, galleries and churches wait to be discovered.
