Venice is a city of marble palaces built on a lagoon. The streets are waterways, and the chief mode of transport is by gondola (a small boat). The major attractions are the city's historic buildings, architectural marvels that are centuries old.
It is advisable to choose a holiday package that fits your preferences, choice, and budget beforehand. The cost is charged at standard preferential rates which are pre-paid and inclusive of travel and accommodation.
Venice is more temperate than most of the inland cities, and the average annual temperature is 73 degrees Fahrenheit. A high of 83 degrees Fahrenheit is reached during the peak tourist season of July when the city is at its most crowded.
The best period is between September to November, just before winter. Most of the tourists leave in early September and accommodation costs are therefore lower, and the streets are less crowded. In this period there are better holiday deals and getting around is much easier.
