The Splendour that is Venice

Built on 116 islands and connected by 409 bridges, this stunning city appears to float on water. Venice, or the Divine Republic, is home to magnificent architecture and one of the world's best art collections. Best explored by vaporetto (water bus) and on foot, Venice is an ideal year round destination; those in the know visit out of season, avoiding the crowds and the heat.

Lido di Jesolo on the venetian coast makes the ideal value for money choice for school groups visiting Venice. It has all the modern facilities of a modern resort including a sandy beach that provides excellent safe bathing.
