There has never been a better time to visit one of the world’s most beautiful cities. This weekend break in Venice is the perfect way to make up for lost time!
The unique floating city of Venice simply has to be visited at least once in a lifetime. It is romantic, captivating and will inspire you at every corner. There are so many iconic sights to see and this weekend break in Venice will give you the perfect opportunity to see them. With international visitors starting to return, you should be able to enjoy a holiday atmosphere, but without the massive crowds.
Sipping a latte on St Mark’s Square and taking a gondola ride through the canals, both cost a small fortune, but simply have to be done! There are plenty of things you can do for free though. Visit the Basilica di San Marco and the Campanile Tower, cross the famous Rialto bridge or simply wander through the back streets and alleyways and see every day Venetian life. Read my post about the top things to do in Venice here.
I found a great deal in the superbly located Mercurio. It is located minutes from St Marks Square and great value for a weekend break in Venice. If you prefer a four-star hotel, you can book a Prestige Room at the Grand Canal Hotel for just €222 per person, including breakfast – I have links to both hotels below.
I have chosen Saturday the 5th of March, but if these dates don’t suit simply edit the search via the link below, to suit your requirements. The flights to Venice are with Aer Lingus and cost just €113 return, and depending on your budget you can choose any of the hotels below.
All are highly recommended on TripAdvisor and are located in the heart of the city. I have lots more hotel options in this post:
Search Flights €111pp
View Mercurio €141pp
View Canal Grande €222pp
