    Literally the best Prosecco I have ever had. Ever. And I've tasted all over Italy, France and Switzerland.

    I like Venice. It may be sinking into the sea, but they just keep moving up floors and going back to their lives. Just fascinating.

    Maybe it is my favourite city! It is unique and completely different from wathever I could find elsewhere. It is a romantic and crowded city, with many interesting places to visit, from churches to museums. Also a simple walk always turns in a fantastic experience, among water, fantastic buildings. Venice is always beautiful, even with fog. In this case it becames really mysterious. There are plenty of beautiful hotels, restaurants and shops. Also the islands around are worth for a daily trip. murano for glasses, Burano for the coloured houses and laces, Torcello as the first settlement of the lagoon, Lido for its beautiful beaches and international cinema exhibition in september.every time I go I found out something new.

    This is the romantic city, the one you've read about and longed to visit. The buildings, canals and restaurants are there waiting. Night brings lights off the water and a change of atmosphere. Awesome.

    Quite arguably the most stunning city in the world Venice is full of charm! Famous for it's intricate canal system this little island is truly a beauty to behold. Each turn in picture perfect and there are surprise around every corner. The island is small so it is quite walkable which is good especially considering there are no land vehicles for transport, that is no cars, no scooters, no buses, not even push bikes in the narrow cobbled streets (all of which I also found lovely and almost like it transported you back in time). The city is small so you can see tons in just a few days but so it is definitely worth checking out even if you only have a short time.

    Florian Cafe situated in St Marco square a must visit to soak up the atmosphere. Expensive to sit with a coffee but take a walk round if on a budget.

    I love the city of Venice. It is unique and very romantic.
    When you need to rest your legs after long walks I suggest a drink at Campo Santa Margherita. You have to taste the spritz, the local aperitif.

    Venice is one of the most unique cities in the world. Its network of waterways makes it a bit confusing to navigate and tourists can make it very crowded at times but a must visit all the same

    It might be a bit of a stretch in ten days, but Venice is one of the most unique places on earth. You could train there from Florence or Rome easily enough. If you want a cheap place to stay, you might want to try Craigslist. Also, when you're in Rome you can frequently find apartments in which to stay at Termini train station. People with rooms to rent wait for tourists to come to town.

    Went over the Acadamia bridge today and saw all the love locks on the railings, thought I'd add to them with one for me and my girlfriend Jemma. Thought it would be nice to show her when I go home to her

    "It's like stepping into a fairy tale."

    Consisting of hundreds of small islands, bridges and canals, Venezia has always fascinated it's visitors. I promise you there is no place on earth quite like this.

    Tip - jump onto a vaporetti and cruise up the grand canal just before sunset. Then watch the vivid hues around you blend into a breathtaking collage.

    This beautiful city, with its art an incredible architecture, is sinking quickly. There have been 10 floods over 140 centimeters since 1950, and the city treats flooding as routine these days.

    Lovely and very romantic city. You can enjoy it with your partner but also with friends and family.
    You must trip on gondola along canals

    One of the most beautiful cities that I have ever visited. The winding canals, the cool sea breeze, the pathways that lead you around as if you were in a maze, the light, and who could forget such an amazing history!? Did you know that Venezia was a Democrat Republic for a thousand years, until it was conquered by Napoleon in 1797? Venezia, if you haven't been, you need to go!

    La Serinissima. Always filled with tourists yet loses none of its romantic charm. Throw away the map and get lost.

    I've already been to Venice like a hundred times, but still it doesn't get old or boring. Not at all. Venice is such a beautiful city! Unfortunately it's very crowded with tourists, but you also can stroll through all the tiny alleys with their small canals and bridges, where it's more quiet.

    Venice is unlike anything you have ever seen. Stay away from the tourist restaurants. Eat where the locals eat. Put your walking shoes on and just explore. Avoid the hot summer where the smell is at its highest.

Description

With hundreds of water canals, 17th century stone building on top of boat garages, narrow cobblestone streets and nary a car in sight, Venice is without a doubt one of the most enthralling cities in the world. Built on 117 islands, this Italian city was once a major center for trade and military power. While the full-time population has shrunk to around 60,000, the historic island sees 50 times that number in annual visitors. Venice centers around the attraction of St. Mark’s Square, a large piazza where seagulls and tourists jostle for space (especially come July and August). The piazza's basilica is extensive and known primarily for its extensive and lavish mosaics. Take an elevator to the top of St. Mark’s Campanile, offering 360-degree views of the city. Gondola rides have become almost synonymous with a Venetian vacation, but the vaporetto (water bus) is a less expensive option. Venice isn't known for its restaurants, but hotels along the Grand Canal are worth a splurge. Make your ... read more
