Venice

Venice Holidays

Known by names such as the “Bride of the Sea”, and the “Floating City”, Venice is truly a unique city with a special place in Italian history and culture. Its many nicknames reflects the nature of the city itself, as it is set over 118 individual islands. Walking along its narrow streets or on winding canals in a Gondola, you will be able to see some of the finest architecture in Europe. Whether you want to soak in landmarks like St Mark’s Basilica and the Rialto Bridge or visit the nearby Venetian Riviera, there is a fantastic number of things to do in Venice.

Things to do in Venice

  • Take a visit to St Mark’s Square. The Square is surrounded by famous landmarks like St Mark’s Basilica, the Campanile and Doge’s Palace. It’s often the busiest spot in Venice, so we recommend staying in the Lista Di Stagna area as it is more reasonably priced.
  • This might seem obvious, but taking a Gondola ride in Venice is a must. As well as being on many people’s bucket lists, you’ll get the chance to see some of the wonderful architecture that supports the Floating City.
  • For lovers of shopping, Le Mercerie are a series of streets that offer some of the finest Italian fashion on offer. The street named Calle Larga XXII Marzo is another favourite for style, and both are within walking distance of each other.
  • Make a trip to the beautiful Venetian Riviera. Situated close to the bustling city of Venice is Lido di Jesolo, which is not only Italy’s longest beach but also one of the its finest. Public transport can take you from the city to the Riviera, and it is worth the trip to escape to see some of the Italian countryside.

Best time to visit

The best time to visit is anytime except July and August as Venice can be too crowded hot. The weather in May, June or September would usually be around 20°C, which would probably be easier for most people.

While it tends to be a very busy time of year, the Carnival of Venice is truly spectacular. The people of the city wear elaborate masks, and celebrations continue for weeks. Those willing to splash out can attend one of the exclusive balls, but other fantastic events are available for those on budgets.

Why we love it

Jodie “It is one of the most romantic cities in Italy so it is great for couples. In high season you will often find outdoor orchestras playing next to the cafes and restaurants which really adds to the magical atmosphere of Venice.”

Date:22nd June 2019Flight Booking:MANCHESTER Comment:Annmarie was very helpful. She provided great customer service, information about my trip and options available to me. A pleasure to deal with, which is why Go Hop is my first choice for travel arrangements every time.
Date:21st June 2019Flight Booking:INVERNESS Comment:I was looking at accommodation in Inverness on a website that advertises hotel accommodation, and there were only two rooms left on the site for my room of interest, in spite of the fact that I was looking at a booking almost eleven months away. I booked the room and then I had to book flights to Inverness. I found flights on gohop.ie that I could use for a weekend away, that would allow me to comfortably arrive at the hotel before the end of the check in period. I was comfortable using gohop.ie to book the flights because I used the service to book flights in the past and they never let me down.
