The City of Venice
Venice is a beautiful city in the north of Italy and enjoys a fantastic position on the edge of the Mediterranean Sea. Venice is a series of small islands scattered within the Gulf of Venice (or, il Golfo di Venezia, in Italian).
Last minute Venice breaks are popular given that the city is so easy to get to by aeroplane from the UK. Once in Venice, the enormous range of activities available will keep you enthralled and capitivated throughout your stay.
