The city of Venice sits across 118 islands in the Venetian Lagoon of North East Italy. This historic city is divided by a system of canals, connected by bridges and split into six areas – known as ‘sestiere'. The densely built sestiere of San Marco is home to a collection of some of Venice's most celebrated landmarks. Take in the Doge's Palace, Saint Mark's Square and Cathedral, Harry's Bar, Teatro La Fenice and the classic Venetian style of Palazzo Grassi. If you need some calm away from the city, rent a car from Marco Polo Airport and explore the beaches of Veneto. The vast Bibione Beach is five miles long and an hour's drive north, while the southern Rosolina Beach also offers a vast sandy expanse that promises serenity.
Experience the museums and art galleries of Dorsoduro, including the Peggy Guggeinheim Collection and the Dogana da Mar. Cross over the Grand Canal and indulge in some high end retail therapy at the Rialto Bridge or head to the market round the corner for an authentic taste of Venice. For fans of the arts, take a tour of La Fenice historic Opera house, or book up in advance to see a performance. If you want to enjoy a spot of fresh alpine air and some hiking, hire a car from Marco Polo Airport and you can head out to the Dolomite Mountains, which are less than two hours away.
