Coach Hire & Bus Rental For Every Occassion
Capital of the Vento region, Venice comprises 117 small islands that are separated by 150 canals and linked by over 400 bridges. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, it’s renowned for its beauty, its architecture and its artwork.
One of the most popular cities in Italy, millions of visitors arrive in Venice every year to enjoy its unique and romantic charms, to stroll along its winding canals, marvel at the magnificent churches and palaces, and to explore the lively squares and shops.
One of the best times to visit Venice is during Carnival time. Noted as one of the most lively and colourful festivals in the whole of the country, Venice’s Carnevale is held 40 days before Easter and lasts for 10 long party-filled days.
Many people arrive in Venice by train, although some do make the trip via air and land at the Marco Polo airport.

As you can imagine, the best way to get around Venice is by boat. Public transport via vaporetti is the most popular way to travel the principal waterways, including the Grand Canal that cuts through the centre of the city.
There are also water taxis and the iconic gondola rides available too, although these can be expensive, so always check the fare before you board. To reach Venice you can hire a bus that will bring you to the city.
Staying in Venice
There are over 500 hotels in Venice with over 2,000 other places to stay. Many of the top hotels are located around the San Marco neighbourhood, which borders St. Mark’s Square.
If you need transportation from the station or the airport to your hotel, get in touch with Rent A Bus Venice today for some of the most affordable minibus hire in Venice.
Most people spend their time in Venice exploring the myriad of canal paths and waterways. The main crossing point of the Grand Canal, the Rialto Bridge has stood guard over the canal for over four centuries, connecting San Marco to San Polo, and the Rialto market is close by if you’re looking for a souvenir to take home.
However, the place that must be top of everyone’s ‘to-do’ list is Saint Mark’s Square. The main square of Venice, it’s surrounded by chic but expensive cafes and shops and is the number one place to people watch.
During the evening, there’s live music, but expect to pay top prices if you manage to get a seat in one of the cafes. The Saint Mark’s Basilica is perhaps the most famous church in Venice and is unusual in that it manages to blend the best of both eastern and western architecture.
Also high on the tourist trail, Doge’s Palace is located in St. Mark’s Square and is probably the most impressive building in the city. Connected to its prisons by the ‘Bridge of Sighs’, it was the political and judicial hub of the Venetian government until 1797.
If you love to visit museums and you love art, the Galleria del’Accademia is probably one of the best art museums in Italy, however you’ll need to get there as early as you can if you want to avoid the crowds.
The Penny Guggenheim Collection is also well worth a visit. Tucked away behind a high wall just off a quiet street, it was founded by one of Venice’s most notable residents and is the third most visited museum in the city.
Island hopping comes into its own in Venice. After all, there are 117 of them. The two most visited islands are Murano where you’ll find artisans making the beautiful Murano glass and Burano, an island made of up of colourful houses where Venice’s exquisite lace is made.
