Venice is one of the most romantic and unique travel destinations in the world! Venice's fame is perennial and well-deserved; the watery city is full of treasures and surprises and is guaranteed to delight visitors.
Floating on its blue lagoon with an almost dream-like quality, Venice is just as romantic and beautiful as it looks in travelogues and movies, making it extremely unlikely that anybody who realises their ambition of a holiday in the city will be disappointed. The charming piazzas and singing gondoliers, idiosyncratic buildings and crumbling palaces are all there to be seen, admired and photographed for posterity. Venice's art galleries, museums and churches house some of the masterpieces of European art and the difficulty for tourists is choosing what to see when so many treasures are accessible. A Venice holiday may be crowded and expensive but will surpass all expectations.
Luxury, art and relaxation await you in the bright, airy spaces of the Liassidi Palace, a 4-star boutique hotel in the historic centre of Venice, situated in a rare peaceful spot within
walking distance of Piazza San Marco. Inside the restored Gothic palazzo of ‘Zorzi dalle Colonne Storte‘ on the border between the Castello and San Marco districts, you’ll experience the romantic atmosphere of a former Venetian residence, its spacious rooms adorned with magnificent oil-on-canvas reproductions of the famous masterpieces that represent the essence of art history from the last century. The irrepressible charm of Venice endures in all its glory at the Liassidi Palace Hotel, ready to entice you with a dream holiday steeped in the art and music of the city
Rome is known as the Eternal City. It is an ancient and fascinating travel destination, which tops the bucket list of many a historical sightseer and Catholic pilgrim:
Hundreds of thousands of visitors travel to Rome on holiday every year to steep themselves in the remnants of the ancient Roman Empire, glory in the artistic treasures of the Vatican City, and feast on pasta, pizza and gelato in pretty piazzas. Rome boasts possibly the best historical sightseeing in the world, with priceless ancient attractions strewn all over the city. Gems like the Pantheon and the Colosseum can single-handedly justify a trip to Rome. Though it may feel eternal, the Italian capital also offers some modern thrills, with a stylish fashion scene and good shopping, sumptuous restaurants, a proud and lively population, and a laid-back, fun nightlife.
