Destination Made up of 118 small islands connected by bridges and canals it’s the unusual geography – situated on top of a marsh lagoon – that gives Venice its character and breath taking beauty. This UNESCO World Heritage site has been loved by tourists year after year for the obvious reasons of its architecture, art, food and uniqueness. While this does mean that you won’t be the sole tourist in this smallish city many who’ve been would recommend braving the crowds to discover it for yourself.

Ever seen someone in a film travelling lazily along a Venetian canal in a gondola basking in the Italian sun and thought that looks like what you should be doing? Well this is your chance! Book you Venice city break with Qwerty Travel now and come and see what all the fuss is about.
For Singles

When: The months of spring and early summer show Venice off in all its splendour, although if you want to see the Carnival you may want to travel slightly earlier in February or March.

Where: The months of spring and early summer show Venice off in all its splendour, although if you want to see the Carnival you may want to travel slightly earlier in February or March.

Why: A city of romance, beauty and festivities Venice offers up the chance to take in Italian culture with a unique flavour. Who knows, you may even find that special someone behind a mask at the Carnival of Venice!

For Groups

When: As May to July are known to be the best months to visit Venice it becomes very busy with tourists. Autumn (September-October) is also a pleasant time to see the city, but be warned this is also the time of ‘high water’ where there is the possibility of flooding.

Where: Dorsoduro Sestiere is not only the point of arrival into the city for buses and taxis, it’s also home to some fascinating museums, a fish and vegetable market and some of the best nightlife in Venice.

Why: As a city that loves festivals, good food and fine wine it has much to offer on top of its usual selling points.

For Couples

When: May to July is the best time to visit Venice as it will be warm and sunny. Any later and it becomes too hot and the water begins to smell. Kind of breaks up the romantic vibe doesn’t it?

Where: As it’s one of the oldest and most beautiful parts of the city San Polo Sestiere provides a perfect setting for a special city break. It’s also scattered with markets, restaurants and bars so you could spend hours here!

Why: Dorsoduro Sestiere is not only the point of arrival into the city for buses and taxis, it’s also home to some fascinating museums, a fish and vegetable market and some of the best nightlife in Venice.

For Families

When: The best time to visit is between May and July, however, as this is when the weather is at its best expect to have to queue for museums and for the price of accommodation to rise.

Where: Home to Piazza San Marco or St. Mark’s square, the Campanile (bell tower) and many cafes San Marco Sestiere is in the heart of Venice and offers a central location ideal for exploring the rest of the city.

Why: Whilst a place famous for its historic buildings and architecture there’s still plenty to entertain children in Venice. The idea that instead of getting buses people use boats and wear masks should be enough to win them over!

Weather Having four seasons there is a lot of variation in the Venetian weather. The best weather is to be found in late spring or early summer, as the heat in late summer can be stifling. In comparison to most of the rest of Italy Venice’s winters are cold and long, with chilly winds coming in from the Adriatic Sea. Despite the ingenuity of the canals be warned it may flood in the period of ‘high water’ from October to February so be prepared!

What to expectDescribed by UNESCO as ‘a unique artistic achievement’ be prepared to find yourself blown away by not only its beauty but also the sheer fact that Venice exists! In amongst the squares and churches are many cafes, restaurants, bars, shops, markets, galleries and museums which entertain tourists and locals alike. Despite tourists outnumbering locals 2-1 at some points of the year its good points outweigh the frustration of having to wait slightly longer to go into a museum.
