It’s easy to see why so many people rhapsodise about Venice. From romantic gondola rides on the canals that run through the city, to stunning, ancient architecture that would inspire awe in even the most hardened traveller, this city of wonders is a truly unique gem in a country of unforgettable destinations.

While many think it’s just a spot for romantics, Venice holidays are ideal for everyone from solo travellers to families, thanks to the city’s illustrious history, rich cultural heritage, and astoundingly good food and wine.

It’s not every day you get to holiday inside an actual UNESCO World Heritage Site, but with a Venice holiday you’ll be doing just that. Venice tours offer up the best of the Queen of the Adriatic, showcasing all of its artistic tradition and beautiful buildings, from Doge’s Palace to St Mark’s Basilica. The slower pace of life here is aided by the complete lack of cars in the historic centre, where you can only venture on boats or on foot. Because there’s so much packed in, a Newmarket Holidays Venice escorted tour is the perfect way to discover this stunning city.

Food & Drink in Venice

The Italians do a lot right when it comes to dinner, and an aperitivo – pre-drink meal – is one of their best traditions. 

Get yourself an Aperol Spritz (or something stronger) from one of the many waterside bars, then sit back, relax, and watch the sun make the canal shimmer as you sip.

With so much water around it’s no surprise fish and seafood dominate cuisine here. A unique Venetian classic is sarde in saor, a sweet and sour dish that hits all the right spots. Grab a plate of this simple snack alongside a glass of white wine and you won’t regret it.

Dessert lovers must indulge in pinza veneta, a polenta and wheat cake filled with dried fruits and flavoured with grappa and orange zest. The light, airy texture complements the zingy taste perfectly, producing something so delicious you might end up eating an entire batch.
