Venice is the perfect place for a spot window-shopping. Look out for the mask shops for striking examples of masks worn at the annual Venice Carnival. The Rialto Bridge in Venice is a good place to shop for souvenirs, especially glassware, lace and leather goods. Be prepared to haggle as the prices at the stalls are not fixed!
Many islands are dotted throughout the lagoon and some of these can be easily explored by boat. San Michele is known as the 'Island of the Dead' - an atmospheric cemetery of gardens and statues!
This fabulous city holds a wealth of attractions including the golden basilica of San Marco, Doges Palace and world famous Opera House. The Guggenheim Collection in the Palazzo Venier is a must see for fans of modern art.
This popular resort is all about the beach with just over 16km of golden sand, backed by a paved walkway, busy shops and scores of restaurants, cafes and ice-cream parlours. In the evenings the street is pedestrianised and is a great place to walk, shop, eat and drink.
If you want to feel a rush of blood to the head then Aqualandia may have what you are looking for... its home to a terrifying bungee jump and some extreme slides. Themed around a Caribbean Isle, cool off in the fantastic lagoons and wave pools, then enjoy one of great shows.
Jesolandia Amusement Park is nearby. There are lots of classic rides as well as high adrenaline ones. It is a night time attraction, opening at 8 pm, although it is very child friendly. Also close at hand is the Pista Azzurra – one of the most important go-karting tracks in Europe.
Events in the Region
Held at St Mark's Square in Venice on 25th April, watch the gondola regatta and procession to the basilica in honour of Venice's Patron Saint. The finish point of the regatta is next to St. Mark's Pier.
The Vogalonga is a famous rowing race that began in 1975 and takes place on Pentecost Sunday. Each year more than 400 boats take part, with entrants from over 50 Venetian rowing clubs, as well as people from all over the world; in the past these have included a Chinese crew in a dragon boat and a local resident who has twice swam the entire course of the race! The race starts and finishes in St Mark's Basin, with the course taking the rowers across the lagoon to Burano Island and back through Cannaregio. 2020 dates to be confirmed.
The Palio Remiero rowing race has become an eagerly awaited event in Cavallino-Treporti. A whole month full of events and festivals with 12 local districts competing in races and celebrating local traditions. 2020 dates to be confirmed.
Boasting fireworks, decorations and floats, this festival brings a riot of colour to Venice every July. Beginning life as a feast to give thanks for the end of the terrible plague of 1576, Festa del Redentore has now become a much more grand affair where Venetians and tourists alike dine on boats and indulge in the array of summer festivities.
The Mostra Internazionale d'Arte Cinematografica, better known internationally as the Venice Film Festival, is by far the oldest film festival still in existence today. Screenings take place in cinemas all over this beautiful city, but the centre of the action is the exciting Lido area. 2020 dates to be confirmed.
One of the most eagerly awaited events of the summer! The 13km stretch of coastline at Cavallino Treporti is lit up by thousands of fireworks launched from 10 'stations', making this the longest firework display in the world. An incredible breathtaking spectacle enjoyed by over 200,000 visitors each year. From Punta Sabbioni to the Cavallino Lighthouse, you can watch the display from the beach, or from the sea on board a boat. It's officially amazing! The event normally takes place on the last Saturday in August - 2020 date to be confirmed.
This, the main event in the annual 'Voga alla Veneta' rowing calendar has been practiced in Venice for thousands of years. 16th Century style boats and gondoliers clad in period attire sail up the Grand Canal in a colourful parade before the actual races begin. There are four races - the most exciting being the Campioni su Gondolini where a series of small racing gondolas fly down the Grand Canal to the finishing line at the 'machina', the spectacular floating stage situated in front of the Ca' Foscari palace.
The last Venetian regatta of the season takes place around the island of Burano which you can easily reach from Venice via boat in mid September. The event usually begins late in the afternoon - around 4pm. The regatta is visible from land (particularly from the ferry point on Burano), allowing you to take in the wonderful views of gondolas and mascarete with ease. You can easily reach Venice by the ferry from the port of Punta Sabbioni. 2020 dates to be confirmed.
