A dream weekend in Venice, Rome or Versilia

29 Apr 2023

Mother’s Day is a nice occasion to make one of our dearest people feel special, perhaps with a unique holiday designed for her, with which to switch off from the daily routine. 

Many people wonder about the date of Mother’s Day: this anniversary does not have a precise date, but always falls on the second Sunday in May, which this year is the 14th.

So why not head off for a weekend to one of the many destinations in Italy? If you are still undecided on what to do for Mother’s Day, discover some experiences not to be missed.


1. A spa day in Versilia


Mother’s Day can be an occasion to relax together. The Versilia Lido | UNA Esperienze offers a special promo to celebrate this occasion: entrance to the SPA + 40-minute total body massage or personalised facial treatment.

The hotel is very attentive to the well-being of its guests and offers a wide range of wellnessfitness and relaxation facilities. You can start your day relaxing in either the heated indoor pool or the 25-metre outdoor pool, surrounded by lush gardens.

At the wellness centre you will find a circuit with sauna, showers and Turkish bath, as well as the possibility of undergoing beauty treatments and massages for face and body.

Versilia is the ideal destination for a relaxing weekend. You can add a nice walk in Viareggio on its famous promenade to your day at the hotel

If you feel like spending your day at the beach, Marina di Pietrasanta and Lido di Camaiore are two unmissable destinations: you will find fascinating stretches of sand and crystal-clear seas to admire. There is no shortage of free beaches where you can experience contact with nature, such as that of Lecciona.

If you are looking for nice shops for some wild shopping, then Forte dei Marmi is the place for you, a town that mixes nightlife, elegance and culture. You will find many places to party and enjoy a nice aperitif.

Here you will find the UNAHOTELS Forte dei Marmi, which recently reopened after a major restyling and is ready to welcome you to its 41 Superior rooms. 


2. A gondola tour in Venice


Venice is a perfect destination if you want to give a Mother’s Day gift: a great city with many attractions and at the same time intimate and cosy.

Our recommendation is to stay at the Maison Venezia | UNA Esperienze. The hotel, located in the Cannaregio district, has 28 rooms furnished with great attention to detail: in the Superior rooms you will find striking chandeliers in typical Murano glass.

The hotel boasts a tailor-made service for each guest to meet the most diverse needs. From ironing and cleaning services to booking motorboats, excursions and theatre shows, you will be pampered with typical Italian hospitality.

Thanks to the partnership with Towns of Italy, the hotel also provides many special activities at guests’ request. For example, why not treat yourself to a private tour of Venice with a gondola ride to make this day special

Assisted by a special guide, you will experience the art, history and culture of the unique city of Venice. 

After visiting the city’s tourist classics and enjoying a typical aperitif, get ready for the spectacular gondola ride: you will cross the most picturesque and iconic canals, admiring the local sights from a breathtaking and, in some ways, unexpected perspective.

St. Mark’s Square, the Doge’s Palace, the Ponte dei Sospiri (Bridge of Sighs) and the Rialto Bridge are just some of the monuments to be seen, along with other places linked to local and national culture such as the La Fenice Theatre and the Peggy Guggenheim Collection Museum.


3. A tour bike of Rome


When it comes to where to spend Mother’s Day, Rome is certainly a destination to consider. Treating yourself to time in this city is the ideal choice for an immersion in history, culture and nature

A bike tour is the best way to discover the many beauties of the city and enjoy every corner in peace. If you want to immerse yourself in nature, you could ride the stretch that connects Villa Borghese and Villa Ada, the capital’s two municipal parks.

At Villa Ada you will pass through the Italian garden, large English-style areas, ponds and fountains, while at Villa Borghese you will admire neoclassical buildings such as the Villa Reale. On the way, you will pass through the Via del Foro Italico, the avenue of the Zoological Garden and the Parco delle Valli, with the possibility of entering the picturesque Via Tiberina. 

At the end of the tour, back at Villa Borghese you will be only 5 minutes away from Hotel Art by The Spanish Steps | UNA Esperienze. A hotel that makes a look devoted to art its strong point and where you can enjoy an excellent aperitif in the sophisticated Crystal Bistrot to end the day.


Mother’s Day 2023 is the ideal day to spend with someone special, taking advantage of the weekend to combine relaxation and dream experiences in Italian cities.
