Old, crooked little houses, small canals, romantic gondolas and the Venetian charm cause lovestruck couples from all over the world to flock to the Italian city of Venice.
Amore! Romantic accommodation in Venice
Just the thought of staying in one of the stately houses right on the canal, enjoying breakfast together on your own balcony above the roofs of the city, discovering the winding canals in a typical Venetian gondola by day and walking through the pretty much deserted and romantically lit streets by night gives us butterflies in our stomach. But where can you find romantic accommodation in Venice? I’ve found the most beautiful ones for you!
Dolce Vita in the historic heart of Venice
In the historical district of Dorsoduro, you’ll find the first romantic place to stay that immediately stood out to me due to the superb views of the canal. Thanks to the Venetian style of the apartment, you feel a bit like you’re staying the night in Doge’s Palace. Pomp, plush and flourishes go hand in hand with a romantic weekend in Venice, right? And what better way to start the day than waking up to a view of the gondolas and boats whilst sipping on an Italian espresso as you watch the busy world go by?
Yoan stay in this accommodation from £124 a night
True romance on the Canal Grande
In the bustling district of Cannaregio on the main canal in Venice, the Canal Grande, I’ve found the next romantic place to stay. This quarter is often described as the romantic and most original part of Venice. So is there any better place to spend a wonderful time together than here? This accommodation will particularly captivate you with its sweet balcony, from which you have a great view of the Canal Grande.
A romantic stay in San Marco
You can enjoy romantic views from this next place to stay. It’s located in one of the most popular districts of Venice, San Marco, right on the Canal Grande. Open the doors to your own small balcony and you’ve practically got the romantic Venice handed to you on a silver platter. Enjoy this unique atmosphere with your loved one – in doing so, I bet you’ll get the urge to go on a cosy gondola ride together. Thanks to the central location, you can easily reach one of the highlights of the city in minutes, St Mark’s Square…
Rustic cosiness & elegance
The next romantic accommodation in Venice shows it’s cosiness through a mix of modern facilities and rustic wood. In this heavenly area amidst small canals, you have everything you need. Like the first one, this accommodation is situated in the district of Dorsoduro, where you’ll find many cute restaurants which will give your romantic holiday the perfect touch!
Venitian charm on the Rialto Bridge
In addition to St Mark’s Square, the Rialto Bridge is one of the landmarks of the city. If you come to Venice with your loved one, you just have to pay this bridge a visit or go one better and go under it! Naturally, there are cosy places to stay close to this romantic hotspot. I have found a place in the district of San Polo that promises exactly that. The small, snug apartment is located right on the canal and is just 5 minutes from the most famous bridge in Venice.
Romance above the roofs of the city
The last romantic place to stay in Venice that I want to show you is situated in the heart of Venice, San Marco, and is a real eye-catcher. The plush and luxurious Venetian building combines light pastel shades with a fantastic view out over the roofs of the city. Located directly on a small square, you can spend many romantic hours with your loved one on the small balcony. It can not be seen by onlookers so you can spend some undisturbed time together.
I hope you like the romantic accommodation in Venice that I’ve just shown you and that you soon find the perfect romantic holiday for you and your loved one! Don’t forget to hang a love padlock in Venice to eternalize your love!
