Famous for its stunning architecture, incredible gelato and, of course, its canals, there are few destinations quite as intriguing as Venice, Italy. Marghera Venice is one of the city’s six boroughs, and is perfect for business travellers interested in the industrial sector, or leisure travellers looking for a more relaxing stay with easy access to the city.
Just a few miles away on public transport, Venice city centre is guaranteed to enchant and enthrall. The Grand Canal is its main artery; take a number one or two water bus to explore its lengths, making sure you stop off at a few of the ‘palazzos’. About halfway down the canal, you’ll glide beneath the Rialto, a 16th Century bridge that’s lined with some of the world’s most exclusive shops.
There’s an incredible wealth of attractions in Venice. From Napoleon's “drawing room of Europe” (St Mark’s Square) and the four great bulbous domes and golden mosaics of the Basilica, to some of the world’s most famous art in the Gallerie dell’Accademia, you’ll never be short of stunning sites to absorb.
For a traditional tour, jump aboard a gondola and treat yourself to an expert’s insight into the great city. Or take off on foot with nothing more than a sense of adventure, and you’ll discover the heart of Venice amidst its labyrinth of narrow streets, canals and delicate bridges.
Alternatively, head one hour out of the city and you’ll find yourself in a land of looming peaks and secretive valleys in the exquisite Dolomites mountains.
Throughout your time in Venice, tay in an IHG hotel and you’ll get so much more than a bed for the night. With friendly service, beautiful design and a price that leaves plenty of change for some of that famous ice-cream, you won’t be able to help making the most of your stay with IHG on your side.
