Countless monuments and architectural masterpieces scattered among the six districts, called sestieri, in an inimitable atmosphere, full of romance and mystery: if you wish to combine a holiday of leisure and relaxation with an immersion in the artistic and historical beauties of Italy, visit the magical city of Venice, just a short drive from the golden beaches of Jesolo.

This little gem set in the lagoon is dotted with ancient palaces, exquisite churches and basilicas with their imposing bell towers, as well as with altane, small wooden structures used as a roof garden, exposed to the sun and the wind, which peek out from most Venetian houses: stroll through the evocative calli, namely the typical narrow streets of Venice’s sestieri, which lead into pretty little squares, cross some of the 400 bridges that connect the city’s 177 canals and feast your eyes on the majestic buildings reflected in the still surface of the canal water.

San Marco with its Basilica and the Doge’s Palace, the Rialto Bridge with its quaint little shops, the gallerie dell’Accademia for arts enthusiasts, the Scala del Bovolo for unparalleled views of Venice from the top and the Bridge of Sighs make Venice magical and irresistible, but the city has a lot more to offer: take a look at our tips and ideas for a unique and unforgettable experience exploring the Serenissima!
