A Venice city break is inevitably going to involve some drifting
along its 150 canals. Beneath some of the city's 400 bridges, the
magnificence of the 16th- and 17th-century palaces and piazzas
Venice sights not to be missed while on a luxury holiday include
the Accademia gallery with its works by Bellini, Titian, Tintoretto
and Canaletto, and the opulent Byzantine masterpiece of St Mark's
Basilica, while those with enough energy should climb the Campanile
and enjoy the spectacle of St Mark's Square below. Just to walk
along the secret alleyways crossing the Bridge of Sighs or the
Rialto is an experience that will live long in the memory.
A boat trip out to the islands of Murano and Burano is also very
worthwhile, providing welcome respite from the bustle of the city
Last but not least, Venice offers some great dining experiences.
Enjoy eating al fresco within sight of the Rialto bridge or at
Harry's on St Mark's Square.
