Venice

Italy

A Venice holiday is an unfathomable experience.  It is an archipelago of 117 islands traversed by some 200 canals, which in turn, are spanned by over 400 bridges, continues to rise above the waters of the lagoon and the flowing tide of visitors. With over 30 hotels, from the traditional favourites to smaller family-run discoveries, no one offers a wider choice.
