City Trip Venice

More than half of the area of Venice is under water. Have you ever seen this sight? Then nothing like going on a city trip to Venice. The sight of the lagoon city will enchant you.

Let yourself drift through the narrow streets and get lost on purpose. You will get to know so many beautiful places and corners. And what's surprising is that the city is greener than you think.

Venice - the lagoon city

Venice lies on 118 islands, which are connected by numerous bridges. The city is completely built on wooden piles. The romantic alleys, hidden squares, small islands, idyllic canals and beautiful buildings and bridges make Venice the city of lovers.

How to get to Venice

A day trip by train or a 1.5 hour flight will take you to the city of 1,000 bridges. The old town of Venice can be easily explored on foot, and access by car is only as far as Piazzale Roma and no further. A hotel in Venice itself is therefore worthwhile in any case. Today, many small hotels are located in the old patrician houses or Doge's palaces, from which one often has a great view to the Canal Grande. Beside these smaller hotels, there is of course also a big selection of luxury hotels.

Venice - the city of lovers

With almost 14 million visitors per year, Venice is a very popular tourist destination. Especially many couples are fascinated by the city, but also children feel the indescribable attraction that surrounds the city and enjoy the gondolas and the Lido.

In addition to a gondola ride, you can also take the vaporetto from A to B at a reasonable price. Although a ride with the gondola is very romantic and this means of transport is definitely a good choice if you want to enjoy the ride in pairs.

Shopping on St. Mark's Square and glass art in Murano

There are a few activities in Venice; shopping at St. Mark's Square, examining Murano's wide selection of glass artworks, tasting and painting a mask for the next Carnival, visiting the Campanile or walking across the Rialto Bridge, everything becomes an experience on this city trip.

Art and Culture

In Venice you can visit an opera or a classical concert at any time of the year. The opera season begins in January and ends in December, so you can complete the fascinating city trip with a visit to the theatre or opera.

City trips to the city of 1,000 bridges are romantic. Book your next city trip today and make someone happy.
