Venice is one of the ‘must see’ cities in the world, and with its picture-postcard panorama, an inspiration for generations of artists; beautiful palazzi and endless mazes of narrow cobbled streets, it is easy to see why. Think about Venice and images of the Grand Canal and the Piazza San Marco spring to mind. Of course these sights should not be missed but, the city of 118 islands has much more to offer.

Our highlights of this UNESCO World Heritage Site are:

Getting lost


A complex maze of narrow lanes and squares stretch outwards from the tourist hub of Piazza San Marco. You can use a map to explore the city but, Venice is more rewarding when you leave the map behind and wander aimlessly. You will see captivating palaces and architecture not listed in the guide books and meet local Venetians in any one of the many coffee shops and reach the obligatory dead end – Getting lost is part of the experience.

Vaporetto No.1

The Vaporetto No.1 cruises from Piazzale Roma in the district of Santa Croce, along the length of the Grand Canal to the Piazza San Marco and onwards to the Venice Lido. Take a seat at the front for the best views (and photo opportunities), and relax as the spectacular, ever-changing vistas pass by.

Cannaregio and Dorsoduro

The further from Piazza San Marco you walk, the quieter Venice becomes. The districts of Cannaregio and Dorsoduro are favourites among the Sunvil team. In Cannaregio the atmosphere of old Venice has been preserved – this is the living and working area of the city. Dorsoduro is a tranquil district and its small streets and canals attract artists year round. It is here that you will find the fabulous with its assembly of Venetian paintings; and the smaller Guggenheim art museum displaying the private collection of Peggy Guggenheim.

Murano

The glassworks of Murano are famed throughout the world. In Venice, the colourful glass products - be it a sculpture, chandelier, tableware or trinket – adorn cafes, restaurants, shops and hotel rooms. A visit to the Murano glass museum is highly recommended.

Lido beach

Venice is one of the few cities in the world with a sandy beach on its doorstep. Accessed by Vaporetto from Piazza San Marco, Venice Lido is an ideal day excursion for those visiting the city during the summer months. The Lido also hosts the Venice film festival during September.
