Venice Italy


Venice is a work of art. The city of antiquity has a unique undercurrent of mystery and drama, there's simply no place quite like it anywhere in the world.

The streets of Venice consist of mesmerising waterways and canals, that meander next to magnificent palaces, unique Gothic and Renaissance architecture and elegant piazzas, all of which are guaranteed to captivate and impress.

Venice City Breaks & Tours: The magical city of Venice is perfect for a short European city break. The city has many fascinating experiences waiting to be discovered, one of the most rewarding is to wander off the tourist trail and lose yourself in the detail of centuries past.

Alternatively take a tranquil and stately gondola ride on the labyrinth of canals, intersected by pretty arched bridges and narrow stone walkways. As you glide along the narrow canals try to catch a glimpse of hidden piazzas, medieval passageways and secret silent churches.

One of the best times to visit Venice is the slightly quieter month of May or September when the weather is still warm, the prices are lower and the crowds are less. Top Tip: Remember to investigate the range of discount tourist cards available as they can help save money during your stay.

Venice Italy

Venice Introduction: The main centre of Venice is divided into six quarters (sestieri). They are: San Marco, Dorsoduro, San Polo, Santa Croce, Cannaregio and Castello. The Grand Canal is the main artery of Venice, it intersects with each district as it stretches through the length of Venice from the Santa Lucia train station all the way to Piazza San Marco.

Venice stands on 117 small islands that are separated by more than 100 canals and linked by over 400 bridges. Navigating through the city can sometimes appear tricky as most of the stone walkways look the same, so it's important to look out for the 'yellow signs' on sides of buildings or signposts as they give directions to San Marco, Rialto, Piazzale Roma, Ferrovia (train station) and Accademia, from these main locations you can regain your bearings and be on your way.

Venice Attractions and most visited places of interest:

(1). The Doge's Palace (Palazzo Ducale): The Doge's Palace is one of the main landmarks and symbols of Venice. Built in 1340 the Palace has been extended and modified over the centuries and remains an absolute masterpiece of Venetian Gothic architecture. The Palace was the residence of the powerful Doge of Venice, (ruler of Venice) and the seat of power for the Venetian Republic, during this period the Palace was the meeting place for governing councils and ministries.

When traders and merchant ships sailed though the Lagoon on the way to St' Marks Square, their first sight of Venice would be the imposing and magnificent Palace. Inside the Palace can be found the richly decorated residential apartments and vast council chambers with their incredible gilded ceilings depicting the glories of the Venetian Republic. The main interior is beautifully decorated by renowned artists, such as Titian, Tintoretto and Veronese.

Situated on the grand Piazza San Marco, the Doge's Palace became a museum in 1923 and remains one of the best places to learn about the fascinating history of Venice. Museum entry tickets and Venice Museum pass information can be found direct from the Museum. Top Tip: Book a special tour at the Doge's Palace to see the Hidden Treasures and for an opportunityto walk through the Bridge of Sighs, (the 17th-century Baroque bridge that crosses the Rio di Palazzo, connecting the palace to the city's historic prisons).

(2). St. Mark’s Square (Piazza San Marco): St Mark's Square is elegant and breathtakingly beautiful. It's known locally as 'La Piazza' and is the geographic and cultural heart of Venice. San Marco is steeped in history and is home to the city's most famous landmarks including: St. Mark’s Basilica, the Doge’s Palace, the Campanile di San Marco and the Torre dell'Orologio (Clock Tower) which is located above the entrance to the Merceria, the main shopping street leading to the Rialto.

There are numerous (and expensive) cafés and restaurants dotted around the edge of the square, they are perfect for relaxing with a Moka or glass of Bellini, whilst absorbing the local culture and Renaissance splendor. It's also worth wandering through the Piazza at dusk or just after, especially during the warmer months when the cafés and restaurants are all lit-up and local bands play live for restaurant clientele.

If you're visiting Venice in autumn or winter you may experience the Acqua Alta. Acqua Alta literally means 'high water' and because St Mark's Square is the lowest point in Venice it's very sensitive to the surrounding water levels. When the Venetian lagoon water levels rise the square can get completely flooded, this can happen several times a year and the authorities are well practiced at providing wooden footbridges and walkways to enable locals and tourists to move around. When the Adriatic Sea has exceptionally high tides, sea water is pushed into the Venetian Lagoon causing large areas of Venice to become temporarily flooded, thankfully this only happens once every four years or so, worryingly the frequency of these events has increased.

Top Tips: (1) Try not to feed the pigeons and the city will thank you for it, there's a real concern that pigeons damage the surrounding architecture and art work. (2) Finding your way to San Marco should be relatively strait forward, however if your not sure of your route simply follow the yellow signs to 'San Marco' which can be found on the sides of many buildings. (3) If walking to San Marco from the rail station give yourself around 40 - 50 minutes walk time and expect to wander off track several times, walking is not recommended if you have bulky or heavy baggage. Alternatively take one of the Vaporetto (canal bus) services to San Marco, they run along the Grand Canal with regular departures from both the station and airport.

(3). Saint Mark's Basilica: Saint Mark's Basilica is the crown jewel of Venice and is a must-visit for any first time visitor. Located in St. Mark's Square next to the Doge's Palace the magnificent basilica was first constructed in the 11th century and is a supreme example of Byzantine architecture with it's regal spires and domes, decorative marble pillars and astonishing golden mosaics to its facade.

Saint Mark's Basilica Venice

The Basilica is the most important religious temple in the city and is known locally as the Chiesa d’Oro or the Golden Church. Over time, the Basilica has undergone several modifications and now represents a stunning and beautiful blend of Gothic, Byzantine, Romanesque and Renaissance architectural styles. Top Tip: Entrance to St. Mark’s Basilica is free of charge, however the queues to enter the basilica are usually very long, to avoid long waiting times book a timed guided tour or book a Skip-the-line ticket reservation.

(4). St. Mark's Campanile (Campanile di San Marco): The Campanile di San Marco is the bell tower of St Mark's Basilica and at a height of 99 meters it's the tallest structure in Venice. The tower stands boldly on the edge of Piazza San Marco and is one of the most recognisable symbols of the city. The tower was first completed in 912 and has undergone several redesigns, additions and alterations during the decades that followed, mainly due to structural and fire damage caused by poor design, earthquakes and lightning strikes.

The Campanile was originally built as a watchtower and served as a landmark to assist sailors navigating the lagoon and to assist ships arriving into harbour. At the top of the tower sits the belfry which houses five bells, during the time of the Republic of Venice the sounding of a particular bell would signal a specific meaning or purpose, from indicating the start and end of the working day, to summoning members of political offices & senior councils and even signaling executions.

In 1902 the tower collapsed, and shortly after it was rebuilt to it's original design, so the tower you see in the Piazza today looks very similar to the tower Venetians saw 1,000 years ago. A visit to the top of the tower is recommended, there's an elevator that transports visitors to the top where you'll be rewarded with superb views of the impressive Piazza directly below, plus the colourful terracotta rooftops and sweeping views out over the lagoon.

Top Tip: Long queues for the elevator (especially at peak times) are inevitable, consider buying skip-the-line tickets direct via the Basilica website, these tickets can help reduce waiting times.

(5). The Bridge of Sighs (Ponte dei Sospiri): The decorative 17th-century Baroque style 'Bridge of Sighs' is one of the most famous bridges in Venice. The enclosed white-limestone bridge spans the narrow Rio di Palazzo canal, connecting the Court of the Palace with a notorious state prison, called 'Prigioni Nuove' (New Prison) because it was a new prison at that time. The bridge is located near to Piazza San Marco, just a 2 minute walk from the entrance to the Doge's Palace.

The bridge inherited its sorrowful name back in the Romantic era, when condemned prisoners crossed the bridge on the way to prison after receiving their sentence. As the prisoners passed along the bridge many sighs could be heard, as they caught their last glimpse of freedom and of beautiful Venice through patterned stone-barred windows, resigning themselves to their imminent fate.

Top Tip: The beautiful Bridge of Sighs was built in 1614 and is worthy of a closer inspection from the outside. The best and cheapest way to view is to cross one of the neighboring bridges or take an expensive gondola ride along the Rio di Palazzo. Alternatively and for a chance to cross the bridge, follow the Prisons route from inside the Doge's Palace museum or take a museum guided tour of the Palace and Prisons, it's pricey but worth it.

(6). The Rialto Bridge (Ponte di Rialto): The famous Rialto Bridge is the oldest of four bridges spanning Venice’s Grand Canal and connects the San Marco and San Polo districts (Sestieri). Designed by Antonio da Ponte the white marble bridge features a single central 24-foot arch reaching high over the canal, allowing boats, gondolas and vaporetto to pass under. The original 12th-century wooden bridge was replaced in 1592 by this impressively designed Istrian stone structure, which is still supported by 1000's of 400 year old wooden pilings.

The Rialto Bridge is named after the nearby Rialto market and is one of Venice's best-known and most photographed landmarks. The bridge is always busy, especially with tourists taking pictures or stopping off at the arcade of small souvenir shops that line the bridge. The best time to visitis early morning when it's less busy, however you'll probably end up crossing the bridge a couple of times during the day as you walk between the city's main tourist attractions and places of interest.

Top Tip: There are stunning views of the Canal Grande and of Venetian Palazzi from the Rialto Bridge, it's one of the most popular places to photograph and capture the unique beauty of Venice.

Rialto Bridge Grand Canal Venice

(7). Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute: The stunning Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute is a magnificent Roman Catholic Church and one of the most important religious buildings in Venice. Known locally as the Salute it's one of the most eye-catching sights along the Grand Canal, it's also one of the city's most impressive examples of Baroque style architecture.

Work began on the Basilica in 1631 in honor of the Virgin Mary and to commemorate the end of the plague that killed a large portion of the Venetian population. The Basilica was built with stunning white Istrian stone and features a large octagonal dome that's become an iconic part of the Venetian skyline, as well as being visible from most parts of the city. The church features exquisite marble and mosaic flooring and an interior full of impressive paintings by artists such as Tintoretto, Luca Giordano and Titian. .

Top Tip: If you have spare time during your stay the Salute is worth a visit, however with so many other important places to see don't worry if it's not on your 'must visitlist'. You'll have plenty of opportunities to admire and photograph the Salute from across the lagoon or when travelling up and down the Canal Grande.

(8). Campo Santa Maria Formosa: Campo Santa Maria Formosa is an oasis of space amongst the crowded piazzas of Venice and provides a glimpse into the local way of life. Santa Maria Formosa is a charming and relatively quiet square ideal for exploring local shops and wandering the nearby cobbled lanes lined with stunning buildings of historical and architectural importance. Alternatively relax at one of the unfussy bars or cafes and admire local artists at work or simply enjoy the laid-back atmosphere and the occasional live entertainment provided by local musicians practicing on the square.

Campo Santa Maria Formosa is easy to find, located in the Castello district it's about a 10 minutes walk from the Rialto Bridge or St Mark's Square. The closest vaporetto stop is Rialto on the waterbus Lines 1 and 2. Top Tip: Check out the Ristorante Santa Maria Formosa for delicious fresh seafood and pasta dishes, with indoor seating or outdoor terraces overlooking the square, a great location in an alternative and scenic part of Venice. Look out for the specialità del giorno (daily specials menu).

(9). The Grand Canal (Canal Grande): The vast majority of Venice is built on water and the Grand Canal is the scenic main artery serving the city. The canal stretches the length of Venice from the Santa Lucia rail station all the way to Piazza San Marco. The canal stretches for 3.8 km and is lined with stunning Renaissance Gothic architecture, including Venetian palaces (palazzi), state buildings, decorative hotels and many unique buildings of historical and architectural importance. On any given day the canal is a busy spectacle of gondolas, merchant ships and vaporetti transporting commuters, tourists and goods around the City.

Top Tips: (1) If arriving in Venice by train take a Vaporetto (water bus) from the station, line 2 will take you to San Marco, it's not the quickest route but operates via the Grand Canal for the best views. (2) Vaporetti or water bus services are probably the most convenient method of travelling around Venice, however buying tickets is not so easy. If you plan on traveling the canals buy a ACTV Tourist Travel Card, these travel cards are a convenient way to travel and can be purchased online for a 1 to 7 day pass validity. (3) If the weather is good and you have time to spare, take a ride up and downthe canal a few times, each time you travel the canal there's always something new and interesting going on, but avoid the busy morning and evening commutes.

(10). The Peggy Guggenheim Collection : Located in a 17th-century Customs House can be found the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, one of the most popular and prestigious museums in Venice. The museum contains an impressive collection of twentieth century European and American art. Peggy Guggenheim discovered, promoted and collected the art works of many European and American artists, including renowned artists such as Jackson Pollock, Paul Klee, Kandinsky and Max Ernst.

Peggy Guggenheim lived in Venice for three decades, the museum is located in her former home, Palazzo Venier dei Leoni, on the Grand Canal. Peggy Guggenheim began displaying her private collection of modern artworks in 1951 and after her death in 1979, it passed to the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation, which opened the collection year-round in Venice in 1980.

Top Tips: (1) Take advantage of the daily free presentation at the museum introducing visitors to the life of Peggy Guggenheim and her collection. (2) Pay a visit to the museum’s sculpture garden. At the Nasher Sculpture Garden you'll find large outdoor works by Anthony Caro, Max Ernst, Henry Moore and Germaine Richier. Please note: The museum's art works change regularly please check direct with the museum for up to date details on works currently on display.

Venice - Public Transport: There's a saying "Don't ride when you can walk". Venice is very much a walking city and most of the city's main historical sites and attractions are within walking distance, and easily reachable with a good guidebook and paper map. (GPS is unreliable and electronic maps still haven't entirely mapped the city).

However, riding the waterways and canals can be great fun, it's also a cool way to explore and appreciate the romance of Venice. You'll also need to use the waterways to reach the places not accessible by land, such as Murano & Burano Islands, Torcello, exploring the canals of Cannaregio (the local and authentic Venice) and San Giorgio Maggiore island.

A great alternative to walking is to cruise along the veins of the city, and meander the labyrinth of canals and waterways onboard a vaporetti (waterbus). Or you can choose one of the more expensive options and hire a gondola or private water taxi (motoscafi), you can also share a water taxi if the option presents (which it often does), and is a great way of saving on the fare.

Waterbus (Vaporetto): The Vaporetto (Vaporetti plural), waterbus services are operated by ACTV, the public transport authority for Venice. The vaporetto is one of the best ways to travel around the city's main canals and waterways. They depart frequently and travel up and down the Grand Canal, to the Islands and the mainland. If you plan on using the Vaporetti frequently buy a ACTV Travel Pass, it allows unlimited travel and is the most convenient and economical way to travel around Venice using public transport services.

Top Tip: A great way to tour the Grand Canal using Venice’s public water transport service is to hop aboard the No1 Vaporetto (line one). The waterbus departs every 10 minutes from the Piazzale Roma a sails along the Grand Canal passing the Rialto Bridge, the Salute, Venetian Palazzi and other stunning sights along the way, it's a great deal for under €10.

Water Taxi (Motoscafi): At first glance travelling by Water Taxi may appear expensive, however there are several good reasons for using water taxis over Vaporetti. We've listed below a few pointers as to why we think hiring a water taxi is a great way to travel around Venice. Most noticeably, nearly all watertaxi motorboats look impressively cool, they have a classic European styling and most are made with beautifully varnished mahogany hulls, highly polished metalwork and stylish leather-upholstered interior cabins.

The fare / price for a Water Taxi from Venice Marco Polo Airport to the city centre will cost between €120 and €150. The price from Venezia Santa Lucia railway station and Piazzale Roma to the city centre is around €70 and €110.
