For a Northern Italy city break in one of Europe’s most picturesque and iconic destinations, book cheap flights to Venice. Venezia (as the Italians call it) was once a city-state named the Most Serene Republic of Venice and is famed for its canals and spectacular architecture. Visitors on a Venice holiday can enjoy the city’s serenity and timeless beauty on a gondola ride through its waterways and immerse themselves in its illustrious past through trips to ornate old churches, excellent museums, and historic sites. The Floating City spans 118 islands, with many districts to explore including arty Dorsoduro, busy San Marco where many famous Venice attractions can be found, vibrant market centre San Polo, bustling Castello, peaceful residential district Cannaregio and pretty Santa Croce. Reachable on short-haul flights, a romantic Venice break is perfect for a honeymoon, as well as for marking special occasions like anniversaries, birthdays or Valentine’s Days.
A Venice flight brings you to world famous sightseeing attractions such as the Grand Canal, Doge’s Palace, opera house La Fenice, the ornate Cimitero Monumentale cemetery, the Piazzo San Marco and the Ponte dei Sospiri or Bridge of Sighs. Stunning old churches such as Saint Mark’s Basilica, Saint Giovanni e Paolo Basilica, and Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari can all be visited if you book return flights to Venice. The Venice Arsenale, once Europe’s most thriving medieval shipyard, now hosts the Venice Biennale arts and architecture exhibitions. Shoppers will enjoy a trip to San Polo’s renowned Rialto Market, near the Rialto Bridge, a Venice landmark that was built in 1591. You can book cheap Venice flights to Venice Airport (VCE), also known as Marco Polo Airport, and Treviso Airport (TSF) departing from airports throughout the UK. This means you can make travel savings and fly from wherever is most convenient.
