Something for the Weekend? - Venice

Published: 1st March 2018

Welcome to our new travel series - "Something for the Weekend". Here we hope to inspire you with a fantastic destination and some unique cool places to stay when you get there. The first in the series takes us to Venice...

Why Venice?

World famous Venice is an utterly unique and magical city built across 100+ islands in a lagoon in northern Italy. As you arrive via boat from the airport down the Grande Canal (the best way to arrive!) you will quickly realise that it is a very special place. Oh, and its super-accessible with direct flights from all over Europe - A return flight from London in April will cost you less than 60!

5 cool things to do!

Some of our favourite things to do were: seeking out out the most authentic cicchetti (yum!) in Cannaregio; grabbing a vaporetto (water bus) to San Giorgio Maggiore to get the best views of the city; enjoying spectacular art at the Guggenheim Museum; seeing the city from another perspective via sea kayak; and watching a Venetian gondola being made at the gondola workshop of Squero di San Trovaso.
