5 romantic corners for a first kiss in Venice
1) Campo Erberia
This is the area immediately before the Rialto Bridge, on the market side. Despite its central location, it’s a little secluded from the chaos of the main street. What could be more romantic than meeting up here for a date, sipping a glass of wine, and watching the water buses glide along the Canal Grande?
If you want to impress your date, then go for a walk along the Fondamenta San Biagio, which is quite spacious and lined with trees. Then wrap up the afternoon at the Skyline Rooftop Bar, which offers stunning views of the whole city. A sure-fire hit.

3) The Venice Giardini behind the British pavilion
Seek out this well-hidden bar in the Biennale gardens, behind the British pavilion. From the tables, among the greenery, you can see the lagoon and the bell tower of San Giorgio. A truly enchanting perspective.
4) Corte della Comare
Venice has plenty of small romantic squares. But this one is particularly charming and quiet, and therefore often frequented by couples. Corte della Comare is a small stretch among narrow houses, featuring an arch and crowned in ivy, and open to the rio. Really romantic.
5) Garden of Palazzo Soranzo Cappello
The offices of the art superintendence are housed in the building across the garden, so you can visit it during working hours. This leafy space is a feast of columns, Roman statues and fruit trees, but there is also a wilder section that resembles a delightful romantic garden.
