Are you in need of a little more romance in your life? Book a flight now to discover Venice, the city of love.
The unique cityscape puts thousands of travelers under its spell, as most of Venice’s buildings sit on wooden stilts and can only be reached by its famous waterways. Local legend has it that a couple who kisses on a gondola under the Ponte dei Sosperi (Bridge of Sighs) at sunset will be granted eternal love and bliss. There are more activities for couples than just kissing, however.
Enjoy the Carnival of Venice, which begins forty days before Easter and ends on Fat Tuesday, or the Venice Biennale, which plays host to the world-famous Venice film festival. During summer the city beach Lido di Venezia is the perfect place to relax, and if you are lucky, you might be able to experience an opera performance at the Teatro La Fenice.
One last tip: even though a romantic gondola ride to discover the city on the canals has undoubtedly its special charm, the public water buses are a cheap alternative for anyone traveling on a budget. For the traveler who seeks something new, a return to the old is in order: Venice offers a timeless charm sure to please any visitor.
