Our top pick for October
Regardless of when you decide to visit, Venice never fails to take you breath away. However, we find that October is one of the best times to visit this famous city as the weather tends to be warm and dry but not unbearably hot. You can therefore, spend plenty of time exploring the historic city without tiring yourself out. Our Venetian cooking short breaks are a brilliant way of seeing Venice while also giving you the chance to discover how to prepare some of the region’s iconic dishes. The fact that our gorgeous villas are located outside of the actual city and surrounded by hills and woodland, means that you’ll also feel like you’ve truly escaped to the middle of nowhere.
If you’re for an October trip which ticks all the boxes, it doesn’t get much better than our Venetian cooking short breaks.
