Apollonia feels like we’ve travelled back in time and entered the home of a Venetian noble family. The living room is the heart of the home – grand, majestic, and historic at once, its walls are covered in Renaissance art (don’t forget to ask the hosts about these paintings). The Altana is also wonderful (Venetian for roof terrace), why not enjoy it at sunset? Found right by Campo Santo Stefano, you’re within walking distance to many of the city’s most famous attractions – and the views are mesmerising too.

About San Marco

San Marco is probably the most well-known of Venice’s main districts, and the most popular among tourists. It’s packed with monuments – it has spectacular palaces and churches, and consistently beautiful Gothic and Renaissance architecture. The central square is, unsurprisingly, an important tourist hub.

Harry's Bar is the birthplace of the bellini, and it used to be one of Hemingway's top spots in Venice. As expected, the cocktail offering here is excellent.

Teatro la Fenice's name translates to 'Phoenix Theatre', a name it earned by being burned down twice. Remember to book in advance – most shows sell out.
