Activities/Attractions: Venice is one of Italy's top travel cities and a beautiful, romantic destination with many attractions. Its small, traffic-free streets along the winding canals make for great walking. You'll find many magnificent churches and palaces, lively squares, and interesting shops.

One of the best things to do in Venice is to take some time wandering along the canals off the main tourist track. Venice has many fine attractions and museums. Famous attractions include:

  • San Marco Square - the main square of Venice surrounded by chic sidewalk cafes and fancy shops
  • Saint Mark's Basilica - a beautiful church blending the architecture of East and West consecrated in 832 AD
  • Doge's Palace - the most impressive building in Venice and well worth a tour. It was the political and judicial hub of Venetian government until the fall of the Venetian Republic in 1797
  • Grand Canal - the main thoroughfare of Venice. It's full of all kinds of boats and lined with beautiful buildings
  • Rialto Bridge - the main bridge crossing the Grand Canal in the heart of Venice, is over 400 years old
  • Galleria del'Accademia is one of Italy's best art museums with 24 rooms in 3 historic buildings

"This place was awesome. It is in a quite area near Rialto where you can get away from the crowds and the loud tourists. The rooms are clean and spacious with moder bathrooms and air conditioned rooms. The owner Francesca and her assistants all speak English. She was friendly and very helpful."

"I warmly suggest this b&b because I really felt at home! Francesca and the other guys working @ La Villeggiatura are very nice, lovely people who will assure a very pleasant stay. Rooms are all very large, clean and very well furnished, very stylish and romantic."

"We stayed in the Casanova room which was complete with exposed beams, antiques, and a beautiful hardwood floor as well as all modern amenities, including A/C! They serve a healthy breakfast as well. The proprietor is a lovely Italian lady who speaks fluent English and has elegant taste in furnishings but appreciates modern "necessities". She also has a library of helpful guide books."

"Once inside Francesca Adilardi’s comfortable third-floor apartment, you will find six beautifully decorated bedrooms, each with its own character but all spacious and bright. Thai silks are draped over the generous-sized beds and at the windows of the subtly themed rooms. Breakfast is served round a big table in the sunny dining area."

Back to Italy Listings

"La Villeggiatura was our final destination on our 2 week trip through Italy. It was definitely tops on our list. Francesca and the staff are extremely hospitable and helpful."

"Stayed in the "Turandot" room and were very satisfied with everything. Service was polite and everything was clean and comfortable. A continental breakfast was also included and was nice. Got a lovely family run B&B feel to it and was a lovely experience waking up with the sounds of a residential neighbourhood in Venice."

"If you want to stay in a unique place, away from the usual tourist crowds in Venice, this is a very romantic B&B. All rooms different and furnished with mostly antiques. Great ceilings with beams. We stayed in the "Casanova" room, allowing us to peep at the San Cassiano spire over the roofs. Very attentive service. Good location, less than 5 minutes from the Rialto."

"This is the Inn we knew least about on our trip and it turned out to be one of our favorites."
