To Venice With Love
Known as the ‘floating city’, with canals around every corner, Venice and romance go hand in hand. Generator Venice offers beautiful waterfront accommodation, lined with mosaic floors, a glass chandelier and intimate chill-out areas. Guests can wake up to stunning views of the gardens, Lido, Grande Canal or the iconic San Marco before wrapping up and drifting down the canals to visit the city’s beautiful landmarks. Couples can roam empty cobbled streets, discover secret squares and backstreets, as winter is the only time of year that visitors will have the city all to themselves. With Italian cuisine for every pallet, from hidden Osterias serving authentic bruschetta to gourmet fine dining where visitors can taste fresh Venetian seafood locally sourced from the lagoon. For those looking to escape the city, couples can get lost in the colourful Murano Island, only a short boat trip from the city of Venice. Murano is the world’s leading centre for glass manufacturing offering visitors’ tours of the glass factories, showing the intricacy that goes into glass making. Loved ones can gift glass ornaments designed to their tastes this Valentine’s Day.
