Venice arguably comes a close second as the World's most romantic city, and judging by its elegant beauty and historic charm, it's not hard to see why. Having been the inspiration behind many great works of art and literature from Shakespeare to TS Eliot, it's also home to what's widely perceived as the most romantic method of travel: the gondola. Venice the way it was meant to be seen!
Venice coach holidays
Built on a cluster of 118 islands and split into the six districts of Cannaregio, San Polo, Dorsoduro, Santa Croce, San Marco and Castello, the inevitable way of exploring Venice's narrow walkways, network of winding canals and some 400 bridges is by foot and gondola. Coach holidays in Venice will incorporate many a fine point, but standing in sweeping St Marc's Square, otherwise known as the 'drawing room of Europe' (possibly for the fact that people gather here in large numbers), has to be one. From here, admire St Marc's Basilica, Venice's spectacular Byzantine church, plus the equally grand Doge's Palace. Equally, coach trips to Venice would not be complete without appreciating the scene from Rialto Bridge or taking a Gondola ride along Grand Canal, Venice's largest waterway.
