A city like no other, Venice is somewhere that’s well worth your time. You’ll be exploring the canals like they’re city streets and living the blissful Italian life with this fantastic Venice city break deal I’ve put together! :)
Holiday in Venice Area
The problem for holidays in Venice usually is that they can be seriously pricey. That’s why I’m so chuffed with this deal I put together after a bit of searching on Expedia. You’ll fly with Ryanair from Dublin to Venice Treviso and stay in the brilliant Relax&Venice, located in Quarto d’Altino, a short trip away from Vence centre. Your accommodation is simply superb. Apart from its fantastic ratings (9/10) this place has just a wonderful atmosphere to it. If you love stylish vintage, then this is it. I am so in love with this hotel, it would even suit for a short honeymoon-getaway. The train station is just a short walk away, so you can hop on to get to Venice centre in no time.
Tourist Tax in Venice?
It will be a nice time to visit Venice at that time of year, because it won’t be super packed yet. Have you heard that the Venetians will increase the tourist tax? This is because in the Summer the city get swamped by tourists, especially by cruise ship tourist. They usually just spend a few hours in the city and don’t spend any money. The City Council has major issues of keeping the city clean and also managing the tourists infrastructure. In the summer months you can barely move on Piazza San Marco. That is why I highly recommend to visit Venice in the off-season, for your sake and the Venetians’.
Sights in Venice
The Gran Canal is pretty much just up the road, as is the iconic Rialto Bridge. It’s fair to say that you’re pretty much in the centre of the action! You’ll love exploring all the narrow streets that lead you past gorgeous townhouses and winding canals. Lots of restaurants offer all sorts of Italian feasts and treats, and you’ve actually got some amazing opportunities for day trips too. I definitely recommend hopping on one of the local ferries to islands such as Lido, Burano and Murano for a relaxing afternoon exploring quieter, pretty neighbourhoods and getting stuck into the local ways of life. :)
