The painfully romantic city of Venice is best known for its maze of canals, colourful carnival, and handsome architecture. The city attracts couples and is a proposal and honeymoon hotspot. It's a city best explored by boat or traditional gondola, but your own two feet is another way to discover the many delights of Venice. St Mark's Square is certainly the place to start, with the beautiful St Mark's Basilica. But after this you can't really go wrong - Venice is a city made for roaming without a particular plan in mind. And we have a range of group tours that offer the chance to do just that, with a great mixture of sightseeing and free time.
Here are some popular itineraries that include a visit to Venice. Alternatively, if you would like to include a visit to Venice on a bespoke touring itinerary to Italy, take a look at our tailor-made holiday planning section.
