City Breaks to Venice
Book Venice city breaks with us at Co-operative Travel and you are transported to the most romantic and beautiful city in the world. Whether it’s a cultural break or a romantic honeymoon, Venice package city breaks are a unique experience, rich in heritage and culture.
A city of mist-swathed islands sitting on a lagoon by the Adriatic sea, the north Italian city of Venice is a beautiful destination at any time of year. However, in July and August, bargain city breaks to Venice can be in short supply, and the city can be quite busy. At other times cheap Venice city breaks are widely available, with late spring and early autumn enjoying mild dry weather, with far fewer visitors.
The winter sees changeable weather and can therefore mean that this can be a cheap time to travel. You need to be quick to book last minute Venice city breaks for Christmas, though, as Boxing Day marks the Mardi Gras carnival, where people from all over the world don masks and costumes and party in the streets. Book short breaks in February, and you can enjoy the even more spectacular Carnevale di Venezia – almost two weeks of riotous merrymaking.
All European city breaks in Venice should include a short vaporetto ride along the Grand Canal, passing under the Bridge of Sighs and disembarking at the Piazza San Marco. This entire area is home to some of the most breathtaking Renaissance and baroque architecture in the world, unsullied by any modern edifices. The Byzantine majesty of St. Mark's Basilica and the adjacent Doge’s Palace deserve a day to themselves, but take time to visit the museums around the Piazzetta as well.
We at Co-operative Travel offer cheap weekend breaks in a range of stylish, contemporary locations. Whether you want to enjoy the Venetian café culture, or explore the beauty of Canaletto, our Venice package city breaks will inspire and delight you.
