Venice

Latest deals on flights, hotels, activities and more

Romance, splendour, history and wonder: Venice will capture your heart and your imagination.

Perched on a series of islands within the Venetian Lagoon in northeast Italy, this floating city is packed to the brim with culture, craftsmanship, fine art, stunning vistas and gravity-defying architecture.

In winter, Carnevale di Venezia sets the city ablaze with elaborate masks, flamboyant costumes and never-ending parties. And in summer, crowds flock to the sun-glazed waters and canal-side tavernas. Whether you come for the shopping, the culture, the seaside vibes, the cuisine, the history, the art or the carnival, Venice has year-round appeal.
