    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

    Amazing, iconic architecture that left me breathless. After seeing countless churches that all seem to run together after a while, this unique Byzantine structure really stood out.

    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 views from the Grand Canal can be enjoyed for the price of a vaporetto ticket. Crossing the canal on foot also offers great views.

    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

    Never realized the hefty price that came with the ride until I was in Venice, but it IS Venice after all...the gondola ride, as touristy as it may be, is a must.

    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.

    Canals of Venice

    37 reviews

    One of the best ways to experience Venice is in a boat. I've done it in a taxi and in a Gondola and both were incredible. There's no other way to really see all of the architecture and beautiful decay of this city.

    Peggy Guggenheim Collection

    29 reviews

    At first I didn't want to "waste" my vacation time in Venice by going to this museum. I figured, why the heck should I pay to see some great American artworks after I flew all this way to Italy? Well, if you are a fan of abstract expressionism (in particular Calder or Jackson Pollock), then this museum is a MUST ...

    Al Vaporetto

    27 reviews

    Its quiet expensive, but far cheaper then any other transport of the canals!! Use it more like a boat ride/trip out. Get a ticket and just ride on the canals, its a great way to see the area!

    Rialto Markets

    27 reviews

    Best place in Venice to pick up fresh fruit and veg as well as fresh fish. Don't just come to take pictures, make sure to buy something for a picnic too. And don't be afraid to buy the fish...the fishmonger will fillet it for you if you ask. Happy shopping!

    Ponte dell'Accademia

    24 reviews

    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.

    Lido Island

    15 reviews

    Too bad we visited Venice in Mars when the weather was still cold and couldn't enjoy the sandy beaches of the Lido. I think in summer it would be a blast. But it was still worth the visit because The Lido is more "Normal City Like" if you've fed up with the slow rhythm of Venice and has the clubs...

    This historic shipyard and armory is great for a quick stop, although I personally didn't spend much time here. As with the other buildings from this time period, the structure is both imposing and beautiful. Great pictures here!

    Campo Santa Margherita

    15 reviews

    A lovely large (in Venetian terms) square with lots of local families and their children taking lunch away from the tourist hordes. It's located at the heart of the Dorsudoro district, and also has a weekly market, and a nearby university. We spent a very pleasant hour at an outdoor table at one of the cafes on the square, with ...
