Made up of 118 small islands, connected by bridges, Venice is often found in lists of the world's most romantic cities. Holidays in Venice should involve a large pinch of the main sights, like St Marks Square, as well as delicious food and drink.
You can choose where your flights to Venice arrive into. Marco Polo is the nearest to this magical city, although there are often better deals to Treviso. Onward transfers by train, bus or taxi are best as you can't drive in Venice itself.
A history of being a very popular tourist destination means that you'll never be short on choice when it comes to hotels in Venice. If you're after pinching the pennies then look in the Arsenale area, or in the university district during school holidays.
There is so much to do in Venice on your holiday that it's easy to feel like a headless chicken. Relax, and know that you won't be able to see it all. Explore St Mark's and perhaps the Doge's Palace too. Make sure you cross the Rialto Bridge, the first to span the canals, and take a stroll along the Riva Degli Shiavone. Apart from that, take the time to enjoy your holiday here in Venice and soak up the unique atmosphere.
