Is there anything more romantic than losing yourself in Venice? The world’s most magical city is a tangle of quiet streets, each instincts guide through the calli and the campi, over the city’s bridges and into its breathtaking churches. And seeing the view of the lagoon at with a story and a treasure to be discovered. The best means of transportation is your feet, so wear comfortable shoes and let your sunset is an unforgettable experience. Summer is a great time to visit, but it does get hot, but to take a break from the heat and refresh yourself, there’s always the Lido beach, one of the most beautiful stretches of sand in Italy.

There’s more to Venice than just Canaletto. Amassed by the Guggenheim family’s wondergirl, Peggy, the art collection bearing her name is housed in what was once her house, and includes world-famous masterpieces by Picasso, Dalí, Klee, De Chirico, Magritte, Kandinsky, and many more. The house is surrounded by a garden in true Venetian style, and the terrace is one of the most romantic places in town, overlooking the Grand Canal. Our number-one pick to relax after a day of culture.
Tradition meets the modern world in this brand new restaurant, Graspo de Ua, offering – in the chef’s own words – “Italian and Venetian style food”. The dish to try is bigoli in salsa, whole-wheat spaghetti with sardines and onions, or the fried cod with vegetable flan. Wine lovers can count on more than 200 labels, and light tasting menus are also available. It’s not the cheapest place in Venice, but the classy atmosphere makes it worth it. And if you’re travelling with kids, keep in mind that under 12s get a 50% discount on their meal.
Small price and great taste in a typical old-fashioned tavern. ‘Da Luca e Fred’ is the real rendez-vous for the local Venetians, a place that offers excellent glasses of wine for just 80 cents and the dish of the day for less than €10. Unmissable.
