Venice, Italy

Book a flight to Venice and be enchanted by its hundreds of canals with gondolas, magical palaces surrounded by water and fabulous setting!

The bustling San Marco square forms the heart of Venice. Here you will find the stately Doge’s Palace, with its gigantic bell towers. Behind it is the Bridge of Sighs. Tradition has it that if you kiss your beloved under this bridge, your love will last forever. Almost all transport in Venice is by boat. Take a gondola ride along picturesque streets with beautiful marble façades and wander through a maze of alleyways. Visit the fish market on Saturday, where the fresh fish, canal and hustle and bustle is a fabulous experience for the senses!

Experience Carnival in Venice

You might say that Venice is a touch mysterious. Apart from its 150 canals and 400 bridges, the city is also known for its famous masks. Centuries ago, the artistic masks ensured that everyone in the city was anonymous and equal in status. This world-famous tradition is continued each year during Carnival, a unique experience!
