With its emerald canals, gothic architecture and colourful street life, it’s no surprise that 20 million tourists visit Venice each year. The floating city is a photographer’s dream.
Consisting of 118 small islands, separated by canals and linked by bridges, Venice has to be seen to be believed.
Arriving for a weekend escape, I instantly fell in love with everything about the city – the food, the people, the secret alleyways and big inviting squares.
Venice has a reputation for romance and there’s certainly no shortage of show-stopping hotels. You’ll be spoilt for choice, from the most luxuriously grand five-stars overlooking the waterways, to quaint bed and breakfasts tucked away on pretty side streets.
