A holiday in Venice is normally associated with a walk through the maze like streets, a visit to the historical museums or also with culinary highlights.
But Venice has so much more to offer: Bike excursions on Lido island for instance, or a relaxing holiday in one of the luxury Spas in the city cenre, Lido island or even on private islands.
Here you will find the 6 most beautiful spas in the city:
Goco Spa on the island of roses
This luxury Spa is located on an artificially created island. In fact, it’s the last artificial island to be created here in the lagoon and was in the beginning of its history used as a fuel depository and then as a hospital for respiratory deseases because of its advantageous position between Venice city centre and Lido island, where a constant mediterranean breeze is blowing creating a very special microclimate. In the same time a beautiful garden with olive trees and numerous roses was created on the same island. Thus the name: the island of roses.
Today the island is property of the JW Marriott and one of the luxury hotels in the lagoon, that gifts its guests wonderful views over Lido island, Giudecca island and the city centre.
You can easily reach the island with a private watertaxi or with the Hotel’s shuttle service from Saint Mark’s Square. Public transportation is not stopping here.
Opening hours: Monday-Friday 10.00 am till 09.00 pm
Admission: 16+ years
Price: Guests of the resort €40, External Guests €80

Piacere, mi chiamo Beatrice!
I grew up in the heart of the Alps, in Innsbruck, and decided in 2012 to move from the snowy Tyrolean peaks to the Venetian lagoon.
The travel-bug bit me during an Erasmus stay in France and so I decided after my University studies to start a backpack adventure through Canada.
After one year I said “good bye” to the American continent and moved to Venice (What you do for love!) and searched for a possibility to combine my passion for languages, travelling, culture and reading.
The solution? Four years ago I passed the governmental exam here in Italy to become a licensed tour leader and then a tour guide. Since then I’m guiding visitors through this fascinating city.
