Romance in vacation home rentals in Venice

Widely regarded as one of the most romantic cities in the world, Venice is often high on the bucket list of dream vacations. Get your Italian adventure off to the very best start by booking a centrally located Venice vacation rental. Glide down the Grand Canal in a traditional Venetian gondola, feed the pigeons in St. Mark's Square, or just admire the endless Renaissance and Gothic palaces which line its famous waterways.

Things to do

Tourist attractions near vacation rentals in Venice

St. Mark's Square is one of the most famous sights in Venice. Known locally as La Piazza, it's dominated by the ornate, domed St. Mark's Church which dominates the square's eastern flanks. Its most famous—and photographed—attraction is the Campanile, a huge red-brick clock tower which overlooks the square.

Activities

What to do near vacation homes in Venice

Known as Queen of the Seas, Venice is a cluster of 118 small islands linked by more than 400 bridges. Divided in two by the Grand Canal, this romantic city-on-water is perfect for just wandering around and soaking up the atmosphere. Maybe stop off for lunch at an old bacari, the charming Venetian wine bars which scatter throughout the city. Take a gondola ride through the waterways, or imbibe some Italian culture in the many art galleries dotted across the islands. As the sun sets over the Grand Canal, kick back with a spritz or two with the locals.

Weather

Local weather in Venice for your stay in vacation homes

Venice is a year-round destination. Naturally, the busiest time of year is the warm, summer months, when the peak crowds enjoy endless blue skies and consistent 80 degree temperatures. But the shoulder seasons of spring and fall are usually much nicer times to visit. The crowds have lessened (slightly) and the days are still warm enough to sit outside bars in short sleeves. But for the widest choice of Venice vacation rentals, visit in the wetter months, between November and March, but pack layers and an umbrella or two.

Natural features

When life Po Delta lemons, make lemonade

Overlooking Italy's Adriatic Coast, Venice is a cluster of some 118 islands crisscrossed with canals in northern Italy. The watery nature of Venice means it's not particularly green or conducive to hiking. For the nearest trails, you need to venture an hour or so south to the Po Delta Veneto Regional Park, a beautiful coastal nature reserve which has several trails through salt marshes and wetlands. A magnet for nature fans, it attracts over 370 different species of birdlife, including great crested grebes, cormorants, and herons.
