Competition Description

Win a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Venice, the floating masterpiece built on a lagoon of islands adrift in the Adriatic Sea.

Flying in from London, you’ll rest for two nights in a central, 4-star hotel. From here, you’ll be perfectly positioned to discover Venice’s marble palaces, historic squares and towering Basilica, before floating along in a gondola on Venice’s most famous of glistening waterways, the Grand Canal.

Exploring the capital of northern Italy’s Veneto region, you’ll find no roads. Rather, a warren of cobbled alleyways and watery lanes, quaint bridges and grand canals are yours to get lost in.

Before you embark on your return journey, enjoy a complimentary lunch of Venetian cicchetti. Tasty, tapas-style morsels, these street food favourites are elevated at Michelin-starred restaurant, Il Ridotto. Sat at just one of the 9 tables, savour a lunch that encompasses the delicate balance between land and sea that has come to define the magic of “The Floating City”.
