Mini-Guide To Venice

Lying in the northeastern part of Italy, the city of Venice is home to the world's finest architecture and most breathtaking urban landscape. Its geographical make up consists of 118 islands, which are divided into two main groups surrounded by the Canal Grande. Aside from the hundreds of bridges scattered all over the city, the canal serves as a road connecting the sestieri or 6 main divisions (Cannaregio, Castello, Dorsoduro, San Croce, San Marco and San Polo) that compose Venice. The merging of European and Oriental cultures for centuries is evident all over the city, making it one of the most enchanting cities in the world. The mélange of different cultures and traditions can be seen in the architectural styles rising up in every corner of the city. Its rich past left it with unfading glories that are so beautiful and breathtaking.

Local Airports In Venice

Like any other Italian destination, Venice can be a great place to visit during spring time since there are only a few tourists during this season. Planning an itinerary is not that easy since there are a lot of places to visit in Venice. Some of Venice's notable tourist spots include the Basilica di San Marco and Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari. Another one is a remarkable museum called Accademia Galleria which houses the work of master painters like Bellini, Titian, Veronese and Tintoretto. The best way to fully experience Venice is by foot. Take a stroll in one of Venice's notable squares, St Mark's Square, and admire the beautiful buildings that surround the area. A great example of a marvelous structure is the Ca' D'Oro (House of Gold), which is located near the square. Churches and cathedrals also make Venice famous and unique. A popular Venetian landmark to see is The San Giorgio Maggiore church designed by Palladio during the Renaissance period. Part of Venice's mystic is that it can get anyone lost in its streets. But it can also serve as a delightful adventure because each turn can take you further from one labyrinth to another filled with amazing sights and wonders. The Venetian experience will not be complete without visiting one of its cafes to sample delicious pastries and delicacies. Also, try some of its world-renowned restaurants that feature the Veneto cuisine, waking every hungry taste bud. Since the city is surrounded by water, it is impossible to visit Venice without riding the classic Venetian boats called gondolas. The gondolas will give you a better view of the city from a different perspective. Although this mode of transportation is quite expensive, the beauty of the city emerges when riding a boat that circles the islands of the Venetian lagoon. It is certainly a worthwhile experience for tourists. There are alternative and cheaper ways to travel around Venice. One is by taking a Vaporati (Water Bus) and experience traveling like a true Venetian while exploring the stunning palaces lining the canal. For those who want to go shopping, Venice is packed with little stores that have a wide variety of handmade products and local specialties. Make time for the Rialto Market which can give you a glimpse of the Venetian way of life. You should also schedule a time to see workshops that showcase experts producing handicrafts and artworks. The beauty of Venice will keep on unfolding through the eyes of countless visitors and travelers. Nothing can be compared to its grandiose palaces, astounding architecture and world-class art collections.
