It is easy to see why Venice is such a popular destination for travellers with its scenic canals, historical buildings and the many museums and churches. This gives visitors a variety of options to choose from.

Be sure to spend some time in Saint Mark's Square, located in the heart of the city, and home to several historical buildings. The clock tower on the side of the square offers spectacular panoramic views of the city, and Saint Mark's Basilica is an outstanding example of Byzantine architecture.

Blessed with many world-class museums, it is easy to run out of time while visiting Venice. We recommended visiting The Peggy Guggenheim Museum, which houses a vast collection of modern art, and the Museum of Glass that is located on the island of Murano, famous for glass production. Your next attraction is only a short drive in your hire car

Alternatively, jump in your hire car and head east from Venice to Trieste which is a seaport city from the 18th century. Here you can visit the Miramare castle which was built in the 1800s, and we suggest visiting the Grotta Gigante which is a massive network of caves. With amazing sites throughout the region ready to be explored, your car hire will make your holiday in Venice truly unforgettable!
