Holidays in Venice, Italy

Posted December 23, 2010 by BookingBuddy

An engineering marvel, Venice has attracted holiday visitors for centuries with its one-of-a-kind topography. Holidays in Venice are not complete without exploring St. Mark's Square or Ponte dei Sespiri (Bridge of Sighs), but you may find the best way to see the city is without any itinerary at all, and a willingness to get pleasantly lost. Wander the meandering streets and bridges over the canals at your leisure: You're never too far from a vaporetto (water taxi) pick-up or drop-off, so pick a stop and see where the day takes you. You'll be sure to find a surprise around every corner. 



It's been said that Pizza Al Volo in Campo Santa Margherita may have the best pizza in the world, and at the rock-bottom price of €2 per slice, it's worth checking out for yourself. There's no seating at this casual eatery, so settle down outside at the campo and dine while people-watching: You'll see locals and tourists alike enjoying the world-class scene.  



Travel back in time and enjoy views of the Grand Canal from your private balcony at the Hotel Antiche Figure. This 15th-century palazzo now serves as a charming hotel, featuring rooms with chandeliers, silk tapestries, and marble baths. Rates start at €99 and include continental breakfast.  Be sure to shop around to ensure you find the perfect Venice hotel for your holiday.



Rediscover the lost art of journal-keeping and create a memoir of your holiday with a visit to one of Paolo Olbi's three stores. Olbi, trained as a bookbinder, creates stunning frames, calendars, journals, and photo albums from Italian leather and other local materials; you'll also find a variety of stationery products for sale. Whether you want a thoughtful gift or a timeless souvenir for yourself, you'll find old-world craftsmanship, durability, and beauty here.
