The romantic city of Venice is situated on a group of 118 small islands separated by canals and linked by bridges – and it’s almost exactly the same as it was 600 years ago. Located in the marshy Venetian Lagoon, stretching along the shoreline between the mouths of the Po and the Piave Rivers, Venice is a city renowned for its beauty as well as its festivities, art and architecture. Both the city and its lagoon are listed as World Heritage Sites. During the Middle Ages, Renaissance and Baroque periods, Venice was a major centre of art, developing a unique style known as the Venetian School. Considered by many as one of the most important tourist destinations in the world, Venice continues to celebrate its rich musical and artistic influence - past and present - with a dazzling array of attractions, sights, tours and a thriving modern art and music scene.
Must see attractions in Venice
A trip to Venice wouldn’t be complete without a Gondola ride around the complex system of waterways. Go with a group or hire a gondola to yourself and sit back, watching the world go by using this tranquil, and romantic, mode of transport. Feed the pigeons in St Mark’s Square before visiting the Palazzo Ducale – for a small additional fee, you can request a ‘secret’ guided tour of the usually unseen parts of the building, including Casanova’s jail and the five hundred year old roof. Visit St Mark’s Basilica, one of the most amazing structures in the world, and go up into the bell tower to see views over Venice and the lagoon. Other notable churches include the Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari, home to fine monuments and paintings (including 'Assunta' by Titian), the picture-book Santa Maria dei Miracoli and San Simeone Piccolo, the last church built in Venice.
Visit the Scuola Grande di San Rocco guild house, a Manierist masterpiece by Tintoretto, and the perfect example of this style. For an alternative view of the city, visit the Jewish Quarter, one of the original ghettos in the city but now a thriving Jewish community – but remember, everything on Fridays and Saturdays will be closed. The Rialto Bridge one of Venice’s most photographed iconic images, can be visited by foot or travelled beneath via gondola – both options are equally beautiful. If you are on foot, the farmers market and Rialto market, as well as vast array of shops and boutiques are nearby for shoppers and souvenir seekers. Venetian glass is colourful, elaborate, and skillfully made – visit one of the artisans in the Venetian island of Murano for a top quality example. Food lovers must try the bisàto (marinated eel), pan del pescatore (bread of the fisherman) and bussolai (butter biscuits made in specialist shapes).
