    Piazza San Marco

    168 reviews

    Yes, Piazza San Marco is indeed the "Drawing Room of Europe" and a great place to gaze at the Church of San Marcos, the Doges Palace (we took a tour this time around), the Clock Tower, the Campanile, and Napoleon's hand in Plaza building and the returned collared that were previously spirited away to France. Erin, Jim, Gayle and I ...

    Basilica di San Marco

    98 reviews

    One of the most gorgeous pieces of the city. You can see Salute from many different places around Venice, but the view across from the outskirts of San Marco is one of the best. This was taken just outside Harry's Bar.

    Rialto Bridge

    97 reviews

    The Ponte Railto in Venice has a twin in Florence named Ponte Vecchio. I can't help but make this comparison since the bridge is essential a shopping arcade. This however doesn't take away the fact that it is a beautifully constructed arched bridge that is an iconic structure of Venice.

    Grand Canal

    84 reviews

    The Grand Canal is the widest waterway in the city. It's crossed by three bridges, the most famous of which is the Rialto. There are also small gondola ferries that will take you across for a few Euro. The best way to get oriented, if you're coming in from the train station, is to take the Vaporetto all the way ...

    Bridge of Sighs

    71 reviews

    I love the history behind the Bridge of Sighs. Among all the many bridges, here is the one that people would look out of to get one more view of Venice before going to jail. Cool to look at, but if you go to the Doges Palace, you can also see the view from the bridge.

    Gondola Service

    56 reviews

    Yes, it is expensive. Since I've already been to Venice so often and never took a ride with a Gondola, last summer I finally decide to try it. We could decide whether we want to ride the huge canals or we prefer smaller, quieter ones. The gondolier sang some songs for us. It was nice!

    Island of great food and great color! There is a fabulous gift shop for alcohol and sweets, as well as pasta sauces and Italian delicacies right on the main strip of the island. I can't remember the name of it right now, but I will come back to it.

    Peggy Guggenheim Collection

    29 reviews

    The museum is great if you're really into art. If you're only kind of into it (as I was), your time and money is probably better spent elsewhere in Venice. It was nice though to see some Dalis, Pollocks, and Warhols.

    Al Vaporetto

    27 reviews

    These are the local busses of Venice. As in any large cit, certain number boats run a set route with major stops. Other, smaller ferries are more specialized as to their destinations. Some are sea-going that go all the way across the bay of Venice to the Lido and others visit more obscure island stops. You are supposed to find ...

    Rialto Markets

    27 reviews

    When crossing the Rialto bridge, you will end up eventually on the commercial district. Mainly touristic and souvenirs shops, and you will definitely find something interesting to buy, specially a Venetian mask.

    Ponte dell'Accademia

    One of the many bridges over the canals. This one is much larger as it crosses one of the more main canals.

    Caffè Florian

    16 reviews

    What can you say about Cafe Florian? Even with it's 'landmark' status, it never feels like a gaudy tourist attraction. Martinis in the evening with their delicious finger sandwiches overlooking San Marco in the moonlight: magic. Sitting in the velvety booths with a wine while the attentive waiters bring you antipasti: gorgeous.

    I can't remember the name of the place, but there is a very good pizzeria located in the Arsenale. When we were there a local "dustcart" (fortunately empty) moored nearby and the crew joined us in the restaurant

    Campo Santa Margherita

    15 reviews

    If you're going to Venice at mid September it's perfect! Local life is just coming back to Venice. So go for a Spritz (an aperitif) in Campo Santa Margherita, and enjoy getting to know people that live there. Young life is there, driven by the fun of the many students living in the city.

    Basilica di Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari

    13 reviews

    If you only see one painting in Florence, make it Titian's "Assumption" at The Frari. It's a Venetian Renaissance masterpiece that shows Mary dancing up to the golden heavens, red robes swirling around her, welcomed by 22 smiling putti. There is also another beautiful Titian--Madonna di Ca Pesaro and a stunning Bellini Madonna Triptych.
