Travel guide to Venice
Venice (IT) - Canale Grande - one of the ends
Venice (IT) - Canale Grande - one of the ends
This fairytale city is an archipelago of 118 islands and is a feast for anyone’s eyes with its magnificent palaces, bridges and domes.

The first stop for any tourist is to head to the heart of Venice ie San Marco with the lively St Mark’s Square (Piazza San Marco) described by Napoleon as “the drawing room of Europe”. As you explore, you will feel as if you were walking in a maze, hence arm yourself with a map. Every turn seems to take you to a medieval bridge (there are about 400 bridges) and as you keep walking, you discover and explore the beauty of this romantic city. You will realise that there are no streets for cars and bikes, just 150 canals for the boats which indeed provides one with a unique experience.

Famous sights are the San Marco Basilica, Bridge of Sighs, Rialto Bridge, Doges Palace, Clock Tower.

Dont forget to purchase the famous venetian mask and do try out the extensive selection of gelato!! [edit text]  [editors]
