Without a doubt, Venice is one of the most romantic cities in the world. Just imagine sitting in a private gondola with glass of prosecco when the sun is setting behind the cupolas of the famous Venetian churches, whilst the gondolier sings traditional Italian songs. That was only the start!
Sightseeing is the main reason visitors come to Venice. Stunning Renaissance architecture is everywhere you look. Prime examples include the Basilica di San Marco with its stunningly beautiful façade filled with glorious art work and the Ponte di Rialto Bridge, the most famous bridge in Venice, spanning across the width of the Grand Canal.
There are dozens of churches to visit in Venice, each with its own charm and history. If you have time to visit only one, make sure it is the Chiesa della Salute. Outside the church is adorned with carvings and decorations around its large dome, inside you will find the famous Pentecostes by Tiziano.
If you have enough of admiring the gorgeous Venetian architecture, make your way to the nearby Lake Garda, which is known for an incredible scenery and tranquillity. Here you can be treated to an array of spa treatments. If you are seeking more of Italian romance, why not to visit Verona, where William Shakespeare set his famous play – Romeo and Juliet.
