Let yourself be swept away with the charm of the city and head to the Grand Canal and St Mark’s Square, where a coffee and a spot of people-watching is a must. Visit Doge’s Palace for a moment of grandeur before getting a bit reflective at the infamous Bridge of Sighs. And of course, because how can you not, take a gondola through the shining canals of the city. Fall in love with Venice, just see our journey info below first!
