Unique, beautiful and historic, Venice has to be at the top of almost everyone’s ‘Bucket List’ of places to see. From the magnificent St Mark’s Square to the Rialto Bridge, its canals, monuments and iconic attractions never fail to dazzle and amaze.
Book a flight to Venice with Qatar Airways and you’ll discover that this city lives up to your expectations in every way. Passionate and glamorous, it is also a business centre for northern Italy and is still as important as a commerce centre as it was hundreds of years ago when merchants flocked to its markets to do business. Now tourists flock to its monuments, making it one of the most popular destinations on the planet.
The whole of Venice is a tourist attraction, but it’s worth seeking out those unexpected gems by exploring its labyrinth of alleyways and squares. You can also head out to the islands on the lagoon, where you’ll find everything from the famous Venetian glass studios to the fascinating mausoleums of the island cemetery, the final resting place for the city’s great and good.
Doge's Palace (Palazzo Ducale) on San Marco Square is a must-see, and ensure that your ticket includes the guided tour ‘Secret Itinerary’, which takes you into the heart of the building, including Casanova’s jail. Also on the square is the iconic Clock Tower – the exquisitely painted clock face is truly exceptional and decorated with the phases of the moon as well as the hours.
Sailing down the canals on a gondola is a great way to see the city, although if you prefer a more ‘hop-on-hop-off’ approach the water buses are cheap, plentiful and run throughout the city and the surrounding lagoon. Obviously, keep an eye out for the Rialto Bridge, but Venice’s other bridges all have their own unique features, including some particularly gruesome gargoyles. To see how a gondola is made, stop by the Squero (Venetian for small ship yard) across the canal near San Trovaso Church.
Flights to Venice with Qatar Airways land at Marco Polo Airport. Visa restrictions for entry into the country will depend on your country of origin, length of stay and whether your trip is for business or pleasure. Before you fly to Venice please check the visa and passport requirements.
