Lose yourself in Venice’s endless mazes and mysterious alleyways. Watch the water shimmer in the sunset while drifting by in a gondola. Known as the City of Romance, you’ll easily fall in love in Venice.
Venice is built on an archipelago of 118 islands. Though entrance to the city is either through automobiles or the railway, getting in and around Venice is either through water or on foot. Its world-famous canals serve as roads connecting all the islands, and each island is a delight to get lost in while on foot. Vaporetti, or water buses, as well as water taxis are also available when travelling from island to island. However, as Europe’s largest pedestrian city, walking is still the best way to discover all the attractions of Venice.
A great place to start your Venetian holiday is in the centre of Venice, the Piazza San Marco (St. Mark’s Square) which is right in front of St. Mark’s Basilica. Plenty of walking and boat tours are offered in Venice. A highly recommended site to visit is Doge’s Palace, especially its guided tour, mysteriously named ‘Secret Itinerary.’ The Peggy Guggenheim Museum is another must-see, with its vast collection of modern art by the likes of Picasso, Pollock and Mondrian. If you are only in Venice for a short time, visit the islands of Murano, Burano and Torcello. Murano houses a breath-taking collection of glass sculptures, and Burano is known for its Lace Museum. Burano is a delight to explore with pastel coloured houses lining its streets. For a slower pace, Torcello offers a quiet reprieve from the bustle of tourists in Venice.
