Venice Hotels

The unique architecture of Venice was shaped by its canals, and the city is made up of tiny islands joined by a network of historic bridges. Full of architectural delights, including grand palaces and cathedrals, the city has a strong cultural focus, hosting many impressive operas and classical music festivals, as well as art museums with works from Renaissance to the modern day. After enjoying a long day of exploring, you can relax in a cozy Italian bistro, or enjoy late night live music in one of the many lively bars.

Things to see

A ride on one of the gondolas down the iconic Grand Canal is essential during a trip to Venice, allowing you to take in the sights of beautifully preserved historic buildings. There are buses and water taxis for those in a hurry, with many restaurants and businesses having space to dock, but most tourists prefer the slower gondolas, especially for a romantic sunset ride. One sight you might spot is the Venetian Gothic style Doge's Palace; a grand white palace with a dramatic facade that overlooks the canal. With huge marble columns and intricate tile work, it has a unique and recognizable look. Inside is equally impressive, with rooms decorated in delicate gold leaf designs and huge oil paintings taking over the walls and ceilings. Saint Mark's Basilica used to be the chapel of the palace, and its Italo-Byzantine architecture is simply breathtaking, dating back to the 11th century and featuring dramatic domes and spires covered in gold. Step inside and there are floor to ceiling frescoes, with mosaics and shiny sculptures that have been preserved over hundreds of years. The Casino of Venice makes for a glamorous night out, and you can arrive in style on a gondola for that extra touch. There's a more exclusive feel than most casinos, with classically styled, decadent rooms that feature high ceilings and chandeliers. You'll find thrilling poker tournaments and table games, as well as a selection of slot machines where you can try your luck.

Hotels in Venice

If you want to enjoy Venice hotels right on the Grand Canal, then there are many 4 and 5 star properties where you can enjoy a relaxing stay close to the major attractions. These hotels offer stylish and classic accommodation, with plenty of extras such as free buffet breakfasts, free WiFi, and daily housekeeping services. Many hotels have own bars and restaurants onsite, with some also offering rooftop terraces so that you can enjoy the views. There are many hotels offering family friendly facilities for those visiting Venice, from childcare to connecting rooms and rollaway beds.

Where to stay

Piazza San Marco is the main square in Venice, with a vast paved space where tourists mingle and take pictures. There are several iconic buildings in this one square, as well as famous statues on columns, with saints and mythical creatures keeping watch over the area. Underneath the decorative archways you'll find several upmarket boutiques, stylish restaurants with terraces, and cafés serving dainty yet potent cups of espresso, best sipped while enjoying some people watching. Lido di Venezia stretches out into the Adriatic Sea, and is a popular vacation spot amongst Italians. Here you'll find long sandy beaches, clear seas, and upmarket beach resorts. The area is laid back, and home to many cultural events, as well as offering excellent sailing and outdoor fun.

How to get to Venice

Venice Marco Polo Airport is set on the mainland, just a few miles away from Venice, with arrivals from all over the world, including direct flights from the USA. As cars aren't allowed in the historic city, transfers by boat are usually the easiest way to get around, with the local ferry taking you into the center in about 90 minutes. You can book your ticket in advance or on the day, and there are also private water taxis and shuttle services, which can be expensive, but give a faster service with more space for luggage. Arriving by train is also an option, with the Venice Santa Lucia station on the banks of the Grand Canal, just a short walk from many major hotels. Trains arrive here from Florence, Rome, Milan, and many other domestic destinations, making it easy to connect with the rest of Europe. If you want to bring your car, you'll have to book one of the parking garages on the outskirts of the city, then walk into the center. These can be expensive, but there are deals available with some major hotels.
