Vacation rentals in Venice

Holidays on the Venetian Islands

The best place to spend your holiday in Venice is on one of the countless islands of the lagoon city. There is a particularly large selection of vacation rentals and apartments in the districts of Santa Croce, Guidecca, San Polo and Castello, which are also crossed by the Canal Grande. Set up your tents in the midst of countless idyllic canals as well as the multitude of picturesque pile dwellings with their picturesque Renaissance facades and enjoy the unique flair of culture and Dolce Vita. In addition, a holiday apartment in the centre means that you can reach restaurants and places of interest on foot in just a few minutes. Alternatively, you can also stay in a quieter location on the islands of Murano, Le Vignol or on the offshore island of Lido, which separates the lagoon from the open sea. An apartment on Lido is therefore ideal for bathers.

A vacation rental on the mainland

If you want to spend your holiday in Venice with a large group, with a dog or the whole family, a mainland accommodation is the ideal choice. In the districts of Campalto and Favar Veneto you will find a wide range of accommodation that offers more than enough space and is very close to the airport. If you want to explore the region by bike, you should also choose a vacation rental outside the densely built-up centre on the offshore islands. An insider tip for those seeking peace and quiet is a vacation rental on the small islands of Torcello, Mazzorbo and Burano in the east, where you will sometimes find rustic villas that promise pure relaxation in the shade of pine trees.

Travelers and Activities

The Santa Maria della Salute Church in Venice
The Santa Maria della Salute Church in Venice
Cultural paradise Venice

When Venice's star began to rise in the transitional period between the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, the inhabitants created countless buildings worth seeing, which you can still admire today. Immerse yourself in the glorious past of the lagoon city and see monuments such as the Rialto Bridge, St. Mark's Cathedral, the Basilica of Santi Giovanni e Peolo or the impressive Doge's Palace. After a walk over the world-famous "Bridge of Sighs" you stroll over St. Mark's Square and visit the numerous museums. Particularly worth seeing are the Archaeological Museum, the Peggy Guggenheim Collection and the Gallery of Modern Art. To get to the bottom of all the secrets of Venice, you should join a guided tour that will also take you through the countless winding alleys where there is plenty to discover.

The lagoon city with children

In order to make the exploration of the cultural sights appealing to the little ones, an adventure tour through the Doge's Palace is recommended, during which you can explore the false ceiling above the large council hall on narrow paths and descend into the dark cellars where the infamous Giacomo Casanova was already sitting. A gondolieri course also provides variety, in the course of which children from the age of ten get an insight into what is probably the city's oldest craft. Alternatively, you can spend a relaxing day on the Lido beach and cool off in the picturesque lagoon.

Things to know

Best travel time

Its direct location on the Adriatic Sea gives Venice a Mediterranean-maritime climate that ensures mild winters and warm summers on the spot. Thanks to up to 6 hours of sunshine and daily maximum temperatures of up to 18 degrees Celsius on average, the travel season for cultural holidaymakers starts in April and continues into October. If, on the other hand, you are planning a bathing or family holiday in Venice, you should plan your vacation rental or apartment for the period between June and September, when the Mediterranean Sea reaches a pleasant bathing temperature of up to 24 degrees Celsius.

Regular events

Traditionally, the event year in Venice is heralded by the infamous Venetian carnival, in the course of which stages, dance and music transform the streets of Venice into a madhouse. We continue with the historic gondola race on the Grand Canal to the Festa di San Marco in April, where the best gondoliers compete with each other. There are also highlights such as the mussel festival in July, the regattas of Pellestrina and Treporti in August and the wine festival in October.

With a width of only 53 centimeters, the "Ramo Varisco" in the old town is one of the narrowest streets on the entire globe.

Top 5 travel tips

Romantic gondola ride on the Grand Canal

Nothing is more closely associated with Venice than the sight of numerous brown-burned men in their ringed shirts who ensure that the gondolas move leisurely across the canals. Join one of these gondola rides and explore the lagoon city from a completely different perspective. Larger tour groups also have the option of booking private tours such as exclusive city tours.

Venetian Cuisine

Its location by the sea also has an effect on Venetian cuisine, which is characterised by fish and seafood. You should try the delicious seafood risotto, the spaghetti al Vongole with mussels and the liver on Venetian polenta (Fegato alla Venexiana con Polenta). The white bread slices available in many bars are ideal for the small appetite.

Visiting the Biennale

Since 1885, the Venice Biennial has been held in November and is one of the most famous art exhibitions in the world. If you are interested in art, you should definitely visit the Biennale as part of your visit, especially as the programme is flanked by a music festival, a theatre festival and the associated film festivals.

Excursion to the island of glassblowers

Climb on one of the water taxis and visit the island of Murano, also known as the island of glassblowers. See the masters of this craft at work over your shoulder and have a very personal unique piece made in one of the glass manufactories, which will always remind you of your trip to Venice.

Museo Storico Navale

The wealth to which Venice owes its magnificent buildings originates primarily from the time of the city state as a naval power. Immerse yourself in this exciting period and learn more about how the rise of Venice as a trading and seafaring metropolis began at the Naval Museum.
