    Piazza San Marco

    4.5
    165 reviews

    The Piazza San Marco is the dominant public square in Venice. It is anchored down by the San Marco's Basillica. You will find many restaurants on the square's perimiter, but I would caution you to avoid these places if you would, because some of them are known to be tourist traps.

    Basilica di San Marco

    4.5
    94 reviews

    The Basilica of San Marco was built in the eleventh century, and it was the Venetian leader's (the Doge) Chapel. It was only during the early part of the 19th century that it became a Basilica serving the Venetian people. When you visit Venice and see Saint Mark's you'll notice that it is different looking from most of the Catholic ...

    Rialto Bridge

    4.5
    95 reviews

    The Ponte Rialto is a beautiful bridge from which you can get an amazing view of the Grand Canal. One of my favorite pictures of me and the boyfriend was taken on that bridge back in 2006, so it holds a special place in my heart. The Rialto Bridge also serves as a great point of interest as you're trying ...

    Grand Canal

    4.5
    81 reviews

    Think of the Grand Canal of Venice, as you would think of any Main Street in any large American City. While those American cities relied primarily on automobiles to get around, in Venice, the principal means of transportation has always been the boat. The boats used in the early days were the gondolas, and about four hundred or so exist ...

    Bridge of Sighs

    69 reviews

    The Bridge of Sighs connects the Doge's Palace with the dungeons of Venice, hence the name. Unfortunately these days the bridge is covered with a weird scaffolding so the view from the outside is nowhere near as enjoyable.

    Gondola Service

    4.5
    55 reviews

    Gondola rides are exclusively for tourists now, and the hefty prices are regulated, so don't expect to shop around and find a better deal. I thought it was more expensive than it was worth, especially since you can walk at night and enjoy the romantic sounds and sights of the oarsmen from a bridge for free. I recommend taking a ...

    Burano

    4.5
    43 reviews

    Burano is a small island in the Venetian Lagoon. Visit there by vaporetti or motorboats and take about 40 minutes from Venice. It is a colorful painting houses and lovely island, I really love it.

    Peggy Guggenheim Collection

    4.5
    29 reviews

    Located in the heart of the small artistic streets of the neighborhood of Dorsoduro, the very own Peggy Guggenheim home is a major must-visit for Art lovers as it collects a wide variety of modern paintings, such as Pollock, Picasso and Dali, not to forget of hanged photographs of Peggy herself in the room you're in. The Post-War section behind ...

    Al Vaporetto

    4.5
    27 reviews

    If you want to ride on the Grand Canal but not have to spring for a more expensive gondola ride, this is the way to do it. This is the equivalent of a city bus line that operates on the Grand Canal and can get you around the city of Venice a lot quicker than walking.

    Rialto Markets

    4
    27 reviews

    It's best to arrive early if you want to see the Erberia (vegetable market) and Pescheria (fish market) in full swing. The barges start arriving at dawn, and the vendors are bargaining with customers by 08:00. The wholesalers and most of the retailers close up shop by midday, so stock up on fruit and photo opportunities before lunch!

    Ponte dell'Accademia

    23 reviews

    This beautiful old bridge is one of the few in the area that crosses the Grand Canal. There are great views from the bridge. It also seems to have become a victim of locks.

    Caffè Florian

    4.5
    15 reviews

    I did the typical tourist thing and sat in the Piazza San Marco with a glass of wine and nibbles from the Cafe Florian while listening to the band playing. A wonderful experience. I didn't go inside the Cafe, though. But the service was fine.

    I nice place to rest and look at the sculptures guarding the old arsenale. I didn't go in (not sure if you can), but it was still a good destination to set at one corner of the island.

    Campo Santa Margherita

    4.5
    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 ...

    17 reviews

    This is the neighborhood I stayed in for a week in Venice. I loved it. Instead of grappling with hordes of tourists and cheesy shops, we shopped with Italian grandmas, young moms and an influx of Orthodox Jews who had come to visit family for the Passover. Strolling the back streets at night was lovely as well as sitting in ...
