Venice has been one of the most popular destinations for a city break worldwide for many decades. In hardly any other city in Europe there are more sights. Venice is unique. A big city without cars and roads, but boats and canals. In addition you will find world famous top buildings such as the famous Doge's Palace at Piazza San Marco (St. Mark's Square). Tourists love the many bridges, especially the Rialto Bridge over the Canal Grande in the heart of the city.

Do not forget the other islands around Venice. The island of Murano is visited by millions of tourists every year. Also beach lovers come in the summer in the region. Lido di Venezia is an island with a beautiful 10 kilometers long beach, only 15 minutes by ferry from central Venice. Lido di Jesolo, just over 20 kilometers north of Venice, is one of the major tourist destinations in Italy.

Venice has the reputation of being a very expensive city. That is certainly not wrong. But you can also travel to Venice cheaper than you think. Especially the hotels in the old town are expensive. Many regular travelers spend the night in Mestre, the big city on the mainland opposite Venice. Here you can find cheaper accommodation and you can go over a bridge to Venice with a train or tram for about 1.50 euros in a few minutes. If you want to visit other islands around the lagoon city, public transport is a bit more expensive. But there are also affordable options. For example, you can buy a weekly ticket for almost all water buses (ferries), buses and trams for just 60 euros.
