Venice, Italy: Venice is one of my favourite city break destinations in Europe. I have been there several times, whether it is spring or autumn it is always charming. Here are my recommendations for a perfect weekend escape.
Where to stay in Venice:
Hotel Danieli, Venice
A gorgeous venetian style palace, built in 14th century, was once a home for Doge Dandolo’s family. The hotel is one of the most beautiful buildings in Venice and just few steps away from Piazza San Marco, the centre of Venice. http://www.venice-hotel-danieli.com/

Perfect escape from Venice and just a few minutes boat drive from San Marco, this beautiful hotel offers a great stay for a city break or longer holiday. http://www.hotelcipriani.com/
