Venice, Italy

Take a gondola ride down the Grand Canal to discover the beauty of Venice. The uniqueness of the city’s canals creates a mirror-image of the picturesque streets on the surface of the lagoon waters. Start your day by enjoying a boat ride to the island of Burano.

Individually, bright coloured houses frame the water-ways leading through this small town. Explore the local community and admire Burano lacemaking stores – the main craftsmanship attraction. Murano is also another popular island known around the world as the home of Venice’s iconic glass-making factories. On your return to the city, embark a boat directly to Piazza San Marco and marvel at the incredible golden domes adored by thousands.

From San Marco, walking back to the city center is the best way to see the hidden treasures of Venice. Walk across the countless bridges – particularly the Rialto Bridge – for endless photo opportunities. Remain stylish and sophisticated whist wearing your Mela Purdie.
