Located on a group of 118 small islands, connected by 455 bridges, the ‘City of Canals’ is a marvel of the world, declared a UNESCO World Heritage site. Take one of our cheap flights to Venice and discover an enchanting city, which will make you feel like you are in a painting by Canaletto, Giorgione or Tintoretto, the masters of reproducing the beauty of Venice on canvas. Free of vehicular traffic, it is easy to lose yourself in this stunning city, despite the hordes of tourists that visit every year. Just minutes from the centre are the beautiful, less visited neighbourhoods of Dorsoduro and Canareggio, where you can peacefully enjoy the mystery of this city.
Dotted with impressive, mostly Renaissance and Baroque churches and palaces, Venice has, in the words of Napoleon, “the most beautiful drawing room in Europe”, namely St. Mark’s Square. At the heart of the city, this square is where you will find some of the most emblematic monuments, such as St. Mark’s Basilica (an impressive Byzantine temple), the Campanile and Doge’s Palace. Among the city’s finest palaces are the Ca’ d’Oro, the Ca’ Rezzonico (a spectacular Baroque building which houses the Venice Museum of Baroque) and the Fortuny Palace (which houses the museum dedicated to famous Spanish painter Mariano Fortuny y Madrazo). The Santa María della Salute Basilica is a prime example of Baroque religious architecture, located on the banks of the Grand Canal. Others, such as the Santa María Gloriosa dei Frari Basilica, the San Giorgio Maggiore Basilica and the San Giovanni e Paolo Church, are famous for housing works by Titian, Tintoretto and Veronese.
Once you have visited the centre’s main attractions, including the famous Rialto Bridge and the Bridge of Sighs, head to the Canareggio neighbourhood (where the old Jewish Quarters used to be) and the Dorsoduro neighbourhood, home to the Vernier dei Leoni Palace, and the impressive Peggy Guggenheim modern art collection. The palace’s balconies offer stunning views of the Grand Canal and, if you haven’t already succumbed to the temptation, this scenery will make you want to jump straight into a gondola or vaporetto boat.
When you land in Venice, you'll enjoy one of the world's best climates. Venice is blessed with a Mediterranean climate of mild winters, with an odd day of rain, a very occasional snowfall and an average temperature of between 6 ºC and 16 ºC.
The summer is very hot and when the sirocco wind is blowing it can even be quite stifling. During this season, the average temperature ranges from around 25 ºC to 29 ºC, although the humidity often makes it feel hotter than it actually is. In spring and autumn the temperatures are milder and the long hours of sunlight are ideal for admiring and enjoying this magnificent city.
Iberia flies to Venice International Airport (IATA code: VCE), also known as Marco Polo, which is situated in Tessera, 8 kilometres from Venice by sea and 13 kilometres by road.
From the airport you can reach the city centre by taxi and bus route number 5. The bus costs €8 per person and takes you right to the centre of the city (Piazzale Roma), with a journey time of between 35 and 40 minutes. You can also take the blue bus operated by ATVO for the same price. This is a direct non-stop route to Piazzale Roma so the journey time is only about 20 minutes. Alilaguna is a water bus service that costs €15 per person, and there is also a water taxi which is ideal for groups and costs around €100 per journey
When you visit Venice you'll be able to enjoy a more varied cuisine than the typical pasta dishes and pizzas. Fish and sea food are two specialities that you mustn't miss. The sardines, cuttlefish, tender fried crab and other similar delicacies are a delicious reminder of the seafaring nature of this marvellous city. And don't forget to try the magnificent seasonal vegetables, risottos and the famous polenta.
The region's classical beverage is an orange drink called spritz. It contains white wine, sparkling water and a local spirit. Usually served with an olive and a slice of orange, this sweet-tasting drink is popular with young people and adults alike.
