Venice Vacations: Magical City on Water

With its spectacular setting and architectural heritage, Venice always enchants. Virtually unchanged for over 600 years, this city on a lagoon is famed for its weathered buildings, picturesque canals, arched bridges, pedestrian streets, soft sunsets and an old-world charm. Whether you travel by vaporetto to Piazza San Marco, take a romantic gondola ride, lose your way shopping in a bustling alley or enjoy an authentic Venetian meal in a canal-side bistro, Liberty Travel can customize your vacation with experiences that’ll stay with you long after.
