The ride from Marco Polo airport to the city of Venice; Marco Polo airport is located in the mainland in front of Venice island, 30 minutes far by water taxi. One of the most impressive experience is to enjoy a glass of chilled Prosecco in a luxury wood-made boat, while entering in the city through the Canal Grande.
You will be greeted at your arrival by a company representative, that will take you in a luxury Mercedes car to the water taxi dock, to start your ride to Venice island, like James Bond. Unforgettable!

Luxury shopping at Fondaco dei Todeschi. The old Post Office building, dated 1228, close to Rialto bridge in the middle of the city, this is one of the most important buildings in Venice, today converted into a luxury shopping mall. (opening from 10:00AM to 08:00PM every day). Here you will find the most luxury brands of fashion and accessories, beauty, watches and jewellery, food and wines. Inside the shopping mall you will also find the Event Pavilion,: the art and culture space for special events. In the main floor, you can also have a drink in a piano bar.

A romantic Gondola ride at sunset. From June to September between 7:00PM and 8:00PM, starting from Santa Maria del Giglio gondola stop (the best place in the city), not far from San Marco square, at the beginning of Canal Grande. You can choose between a traditional tour or a serenade tour (not very Venetian, but….). More information at https://www.bookvenicegondola.com/tours
A romantic dinner at Fondamenta del Vin. Close to Rialto bridge and market, one of the “trendy” locations in the city, with several “Osterie” (restaurants) with Italian and Venetian traditional meals; also, suitable for an appetizer at midday or a drink at night. My favorite dish? Bigoli in Salsa (Spaghetti with anchovy sauce) and Spaghetti ai frutti di mare (seafood spaghetti).
