A watery world of Gothic palaces, carnival masks and Byzantine churches, Venice does not fail to impress. Venice really is the jewel in Italy’s crown and is one of the most recognisable and unique places in the world.

A floating city of bridges, canals and winding back streets, this place is a Mecca for romantic couples, culture vultures and those wanting to step into a fairytale world. After you’ve visited the bustling St Mark’s Square, looked inside its world famous cathedral basilica and, of course, fed the pigeons, lose yourself in the maze-like Cannaregio, Castello and Dorsoduro districts where you’ll find the real Venice, you know, like the one you see in the movies.

Here you’ll come across local markets, museums galore and thankfully fewer tourists. And if you’ve still got the energy after all that sightseeing and fancy a tipple or two then hit the trendy pubs and bars around Campo di Santa Margherita in Dorsoduro.

 


Hire a costume or at least don a mask and get into the carnival spirit. Venice's famous carnival is February 11-28 this year. Highlights include the dramatic flight of the angel in St Mark's square (19 February) but there's always something going on. www.carnevale.venezia.it


Hidden in a tiny piazza, the startling Scala Contarini tower, reminiscent of the leaning tower of Pisa, houses a decorative spiral staircase built in the 15th century as a display of prestige and social standing. It currently has a temporary exhibition of contemporary works by Pablo Echaurren. (Corte Contarini del Bovolo, San Marco, www.scalacontarinidelbovolo.com)


Get into the spirit of the watery city by signing up for a tour with Real Venetian Kayak. You'll experience Venice from the water at your own speed with an English-speaking instructor who will paddle with you through the canals. (389 985 1866, www.realvenetiankayak.com)
