Best Time To Visit: Venice has a lot to offer any time of year, with festivals throughout the seasons. Winter is beautiful but May – September are the warmest months.
Key Cruising Areas: Many of the lagoons and canals of Venice can be explored by tender, and the city’s location at the top of the Adriatic Sea offers many options to sail to the Croatian or Greek islands.
Don’t Miss: The Vaporetto water taxi is a must-do in Venice. Take the route up the Grand Canal for an incredible exhibition of Venetian architecture, and views of many famous sights of the city. Stop at St Mark’s Square and go to the top of the bell tower for the most incredible view of Venice.
Best Spots for Wining and Dining: The area around San Marco is filled with restaurants, and while some cater to the tourists there are several excellent choices for those who want something a little more upmarket. Upstairs at Quadri restaurant, the beautiful view of the square is matched by the equally beautiful creations of Michelin-starred Chef Alajmo.
