Gondolier on the Grand Canal in Venice

Here are our top things to do during your honeymoon or destination wedding in Venice:

See three of the city's major sites in one place. St Mark's Basilica, Doge's Palace and Torre dell'Orologio are all on the edge of the stunning piazza San Marco.

Travel by gondola. No trip to Venice is complete without a ride in one through the city's awe-inspiring canals.

Slip on a signature Venetian look — a mask. The city's Carnevale is one of its largest festivals, filling the city with masked celebrators at the beginning of February each year.

Leave all your ideas about Italian food at the train station. Venice's fare is based on fresh seafood — and places like Osteria Alle Testiere and Osteria Boccadoro do it right.
