Bird eye view of Venice

A unique and historically significant city, Venice is the capital of the Veneto region in Italy.

The city is spread over 117 little islands, which are separated by a network of canals and connected by a chain of bridges. Venice is a vital economic centre, and one of the most visited tourist destinations in Italy. 

 

The city was a powerful stronghold during the Middle Ages and the Italian Renaissance and went through great artistic and cultural development throughout that period. This is evident in its beautiful architecture, landmarks and tourist attractions which draw visitors from all over the world.

Things to do in Venice

Known as “The Floating City”, or “City of Canals”, Venice is unique in that it is a city without roads and is beautiful in its own special way. A favourite location for artists, one of its main attractions is the Grand Canal thoroughfare, which is lined with Gothic and Renaissance palaces. There are other locations such as the Piazza San Marco, home to the Campanile bell tower and St. Mark’s Basilica. A most picturesque location, you are sure to have a memorable experience visiting this historical gem of a city.

Grand-Canal Grand-Canal
Canal Grande

The largest of the hundreds of canals that connect the islands of Venice, the Canal Grande is monumental. With its S shape, it snakes through the city centre from one end of Venice to the other. 

 

A cruise along this waterway is a great way to tour the city and seeing the many 13th century buildings that line its banks. There are four bridges that span the canal, and visitors with motion sickness could choose to visit these in touring sections of the canal as opposed to traveling along the water.

Lido Lido
Venice Lido

An island situated between Venice and the Adriatic Sea, the Lido is a great location for relaxation away from most touristic crowds and the bustle of the city. 

A day at the Lido would naturally consist of spending time along its long stretch of beach, relaxing in one of its many restaurants and hotels or shopping in its residential areas. It's a great contrast to the busy waterways and streets of Venice makes it a worthwhile visit.

Murano

Much like Venice, Murano is made up of small islands separated by canals and all connected by bridges. It is located within the Venice district and is a quaint and charming location that doesn’t attract quite as many visitors as Venice. 

The island is famous for glass blowing, and visitors can watch demonstrations at the various factories located there. There are also other attractions, such as, the Palazzo Da Mula, the Basilica dei Santa Maria and the Campo Santo Stefano.

Campanile Campanile
San Marco Campanile

Standing at 98.6m high, the campanile is the tallest building in Venice. Used to be a watch tower, the current structure is a reconstruction of the original which collapsed in 1902. The tower is made of a simple red-brick design and features a golden statue of the Angel Gabriel on top. 

 

Over the years the tower has been damaged by lightening, fire and even earthquakes. Visitors can get to its top by elevator and enjoy panoramic views of the city of Venice.

Venice Cuisine​

Although Italy is famous for pasta and pizza, the cuisine in Venice relies a lot on fresh fish and vegetables. Some of these delicious creations you might come across include, sarde in saor, which is a sweet and sour favourite consisting of marinated fried sardine fillets, pine nuts and raisins. It is usually served as an appetiser. 

 

There is also Moleche, a dish of small green crabs, which have shed their shells, served usually with salads and fried dishes. Another to try, especially during the carnival period, is fritole, a sweet pastry usually eaten during the festivities before Lent.
