In March of 2022, our very own Commercial Executive Michael took a trip to Venice to visit a few of our hotel partners and delve deeper into this famous Italian city. He may have spent less than three days there, but Michael squeezed a lot into his trip. Visiting a city is ideal for when you don’t have a lot of time, as everything is often within walking distance (or boating distance in Venice’s case!).
“In my 2.5 days, I managed to get a lot done, at quite a fast pace. Visiting in March after the main Carnival period provided me with amazing weather of blue skies and cool temperatures, as well as low, manageable crowds”
“Venice is known for its unique labyrinth of intertwined canals and pathways, it’s no wonder it’s on the bucket-list for many world travellers”.
“It’s an art lovers dream, with an abundance of museums, galleries, and churches filled to the brim with Tintoretto masterpieces, Canaletto landscapes, Titian renaissance classics, as well as a hoard of other artwork dating back many centuries.”
“History and Art may be a big draw for many tourists, but if it’s not your cup of tea, there is plenty more to enjoy, from the delicious Italian cuisine you’ll find on every corner, to the stunning architecture providing the perfect picturesque backdrop.”
“Every turn brings you something new, you can spend hours getting lost wandering across the countless bridges. You’ll find yourself getting transfixed gazing down the canals and watching the gondoliers”
“If you’re looking for something a little off the beaten track, have a look at the former shipyard ‘Arsenale di Venezia’. Or perhaps you may want to paint your own carnival-style mask, attend a Venezia F.C. game, or just enjoy some tasty Italian sweet treats including gelato or cannoli.“
