Check out these exclusive Venice breaks in 2011

Venice is one of the most romantic tourist destinations on the planet, with a languid and sophisticated air, gondolas slowly drifting down the ancient canals, and famous sites such as the Rialto Bridge and the Campanile. Yet visiting this UNESCO protected Italian city does not have to be expensive, with plenty of cheap deals currently on offer. Here's a look at some exclusive Venice breaks for 2011.

Thomson Holidays have a wide array of Venice holiday deals currently for sale, with hotels situated in the heart of the city, or further away at inexpensive rates. Stays at the three star Antica Casa Carettoni start from around £731 for 7 nights. This is based on departing on the 25th of August with two people sharing a room. The hotel is just yards from the Grand Canal, and is surrounded by cafes, restaurants and bars. St. Mark's Square is around a 15 minute walk away.

If you would prefer a shorter stay in this beautiful renaissance city, then Lastminute.com also offer great packages with flights included. A stay at the four star Starhotels Splendid Venice, a short walk from the Doge's Palace, start at £478 per person. For this price travellers stay in a spacious double room, fly from Gatwick on British Airways, and can treat themselves to a continental buffet breakfast. This break departs on August 7th but similar deals are available throughout the summer.

With hundreds of cheap hotels Venice is well suited to bargain breaks, and is superb for those travelling on a budget. Yet the city also plays host to the most lavish and luxurious hotels in Europe. Whatever you are after, the Venice breaks 2011 has to offer appeal to a wide variety of holidaymakers.
