Visiting from Melbourne to Venice

Venice Italy river at sunset

Venice, the Floating City is one of the most popular destinations in northeastern Italy to visit. Canals, gondolas, the Biennale Festival, the Lido and the Rialto bridge are just a few of the highlights of the grand Venetian city. Be sure to see the Palazzo Ducale and Basilica di San Marco and wander through the narrow backstreets and find neighbourhood churches lined with marble, bistro, bars and artesian craftsman. The joy of Venice is getting lost. Be sure to take a ride on the vaporetto to the Lido beach, cruise on a gondola, go to the Opera and enjoy the superb people watching of the fashionable Venetians. For a few days, its one city you won’t forget.

When to visit

The best time to visit Venice is September to November and April to May when there are fewer crowds, the days are sunny but not too hot. In April you can enjoy the Easter celebrations and with the warm weather makes it a good time to visit St Mark's Square, The Rialto Bridge in the old Quarter and taking a Gondola Ride. June through to August is hot and humid, so it is little quieter, with the temperatures around 28°C. Spring is a lovely time to visit the city of canals, as temperatures drop, the weather is cooler, perfect for seeing the sights.
