Explore the wonders of Venice from San Marco holiday houses

Renting a San Marco holiday apartment is ideal for any visitor who wants to be right in the heart of Venice. The district is busy and bustling with people all year round, with tourists flocking to see the attractions that are left, right and centre. By choosing your San Marco accommodation carefully, you can get the best out of your holiday – a quiet tranquil night’s sleep, with a lively atmosphere during the day. Regardless of whether you are a family or couple coming to Italy, the San Marco district of Venice is simply, brilliant.

What to do in San Marco

It’s easy to see why many people choose San Marco holiday homes. The San Marco Piazza, aka St. Mark’s Square, is what most tourists will remember it for, and for good reason. Even with the huge number of tourists who visit the piazza every day, you will not miss the beauty and magnificence of expanse and the buildings. Its eastern face features the huge basilica of Saint Mark (after whom the district is named) combined with enormous marble arches. The building truly is beautiful and unique.

The cafes and restaurants in the square and immediate area offer extremely good value for the quality of food they provide; you can have classic Italian cuisine and excellent coffee served in the glorious surroundings any time of day. If shopping is more your thing, there are plenty of shops contained in the streets of San Marco to keep you occupied for hours.

Places to visit

San Marco holiday homes are ideally located for all the sights and attractions of Venice. The highlight of any trip has to be a Gondola trip down one of the many canals. It’s best to leave your Gondola ride until a few days into your holiday, as you will have a feel for the area and where is best to travel – sometimes the most popular places with tourists on the Gondola rides aren’t actually the most beautiful, so make sure you keep your eyes out for any hidden gems that the city may have to offer.

Similarly, the historical museums and buildings that are scattered throughout San Marco are really worth a visit. Just as your trip would not be complete without the Gondola experience, you will never get an opportunity to experience the history of Venice quite like you can by visiting one of the many museums.

Climate in San Marco

San Marco accommodation is popular throughout the year because of its pleasant climate regardless of the month. July and August are the hottest months of the year so most tourists find that the late spring/early autumn is the best time to visit the city, as the sun is shining, but it is not too hot.

Travelling to San Marco

There are direct flights from Australia into the Italian capital, Rome from where you can get a connection to Venice’s Marco Polo airport. You can hire a car to reach your San Marco holiday home but unless you intend travelling beyond the city, there’s no real need for a car in Venice.

The Apartment is truely wonderful & well equipped. Views on Venice Staff made check in & check out easy. We were fortunate that the Regatta was on during our stay & we had a birds eye view. This was our 5th visit to Venice but our first in an Apartment. Will definitely stay again when next in Venice.
