About this trip

 Recommended date range: 1st September - 31st October 

The Floating City: Venice
Per Night



What you'll do
  • Day 1- Rialto Bridge

    Rialto Bridge was one of our first stops in Venice. Even though it’s undoubtedly swarming with tourists, it’s a great spot to get your bearings of the city while soaking in a view of one of the most iconic bridges. Walking over Rialto Bridge, you’ll get an amazing view of the Grand Canal, so make sure to come here at sunset for a visual treat. We ended up grabbing a table right next to the foot of the bridge and even though admittedly this may have been a tourist trap, it was the perfect spot to take in all the sights and smells of the Adriatic Sea with an iced cold rosé....

  • Day 2- Bridge of Sighs

    It’s an iconic view of Venice, connecting the New Prison to the interrogation rooms in the Doge’s Palace (which means if you actually want to walk across the bridge, you’ll need to buy an access ticket to the palace). This 15th-century construction was dubbed the “Bridge of Sighs” as it was said that the convicted Venetian prisoners would let out a sigh at their final view of Venice from the bridge before being taken down to their cells....

  • Day 3- T Fondaco Rooftop Terrace

    The other best view of Venice is FREE to access from the rooftop of Fondaco Dei Tedeschi, a luxury shopping center. You just need to book a viewing online for your complimentary view of the Grand Canal. You’ll be granted access to the rooftop for 15 minutes, which is enough time to soak in the views, grab a cheeky selfie, and think of an exit plan so you don’t spend all your money when existing through the department store. I strongly advise booking ahead of time so you don’t miss out.... Show more

  • Day 4- Libreria Acqua Alta

    The self-proclaimed “most beautiful bookshop in the world” and as someone who admittedly hasn’t frequented many book stores since my university days, I’d have to say they’re certainly not wrong. You can’t miss a visit to Libreria Acqua Alta, bookworm or not. Day trip to Burano(Optional): This tiny island is an Instagrammer’s wet dream, however, the brightly colored fishermen houses of Burano have painted shades of pink, green, and yellow long before any social media apps even existed. To get there you need to catch a ferry from Venice. There are a few spots you can catch, the most accessible one being Zaccaria Pieta near St Mark’s Square.... Show more

  • Day 5- Go on a Gondola Ride

    If you are planning a trip to Venice you simply have to take a ride on a Gondola. Also, you can totes do it for a reasonable cost too. If you’re on a budget or traveling solo, you can book a spot on a group gondola ride on with prices starting from £25 per person. If you’re looking for a private ride, prices are between £80-£120 depending on the length of your journey. We paid £100 for a private ride that lasted 45 minutes and it was worth every cent. It was glam, it was romantic and it was the definition of boujee. You can catch a gondola practically anywhere along the canals of Venice.... Show more

Sightseeing & Activities
Day 1

Fondamenta Nani, 992, 30123 Venezia VE, Italy

While the rest of Italy may be famous for its pizza and pasta, Venice is known for its Cicchetti. Dotted across the city you will find countless Bàcaro – which are wine/snack bars.

Day 2
Palazzo Contarini del Bovolo

Scala Contarini del Bovolo, 4303, 30124 Venezia VE, Italy

One of the best views in Venice is from the top of a spiral staircase, tucked away in San Marco. Climbing the steps of Palazzo Contarini del Bovolo will lead you to an impressive arcade.

Day 3
Caffè Florian San Marco, 57, 30124 Venezia VE, Italy

On a typical foggy day in Venice, we sought shelter at Caffè Florian, the oldest coffee house in the world. Every inch of this cafe is overtly decadent and dripping in 18th-century details.

Day 4
Gelatoteca SuSo

Sotoportego de la Bissa, 5453, 30124 Venezia VE, Italy

You’ll find the tastiest gelato in Venice at Gelatoteca Suso and you’ll just have to take my word for it. The words of thousands of other tourists who have confessed their love for this tiny establishment.

Day 5
Eat takeaway pasta from Dal Moro’s

Calle Casseleria, 5324, 30122 Venezia VE, Italy

The take-out spot specializes in made-to-order fresh pasta with artisan sauces, which makes it the perfect spot to swing by and get your carb fix.
