A historic five-star hotel on the golden sands of the Venice Lido, with breakfast, a shuttle to central Venice and thoughtful extras

The majestic city of Venice hardly needs any introduction. If you haven't been before, you simply must and if you have, then this is a great excuse to go back. The dizzyingly labyrinthine streets hide enough gems to justify a lifetime's exploration, and the mild climate and rich heritage at the crossroads of Mediterranean and Asian culture make this the perfect city break.

The five-star Hotel Excelsior is a beautiful base from which to explore this magnificent city, boasting both proximity to the centre of town and seclusion and calm on the golden sands of the Venice Lido. It dates back to 1908, when it transformed the lido from a long sandbank on the fringes of the town into a grand, luxurious resort and a hub in its own right. The architecture of the Excelsior however, harks back to a much more distant history, its design echoing the Iberian Moresque style of the city's heyday.

Whilst this hotel boasts three restaurants, three bars and a large swimming pool and fitness centre, the true highlight of the Excelsior, however, is its location on the Lido - a strip of golden sand, looking out over the Adriatic Sea. The hotel's private beach boasts some beautiful huts and a degree of seclusion and privacy unimaginable elsewhere in Venice. Water sports are available on the Lido too, like windsurfing and waterskiing.

Please note that a city tax of €5 per person, per night is not included and is payable at the hotel.

Venice has been a favourite spot for tourists since the grand tour of the mid-17th century and it remains virtually unchanged since then. It is an absolute must-see destination and boasts some of the finest architecture and art of Europe. The Doge's Palace and Basilica of San Marco, on San Marco Square, are among the top attractions in the city. However, with its central area alone being comprised of 118 islands and hundreds of winding alleyways, the best way to experience Venice is to set off on foot and see where you emerge. The Scuola Grande di San Rocco and the Jewish Ghetto are definitely worth a visit, as is the Rialto Bridge and the Peggy Guggenheim Museum - perhaps the city's sole bastion of modernity.
