    Piazza San Marco

    168 reviews

    I guess we're in the minority, but we've visited Piazza San Marco twice over the years. It's great if you like hordes of tourists, pigeons galore, over-priced restaurants, competing bands, and shops selling nothing but masks and glass. The architecture is amazing & we have been told that it's best explored in the evening, but until we escaped to the ...

    Basilica di San Marco

    98 reviews

    Beautiful! Amazing! I went to Venice two months ago! I visited St. Mark's Basilica and I was so excited to see this masterpiece! A great mix of art! I suggest to prebook the entrance on internet with! It was really quick without any queue!

    Rialto Bridge

    97 reviews

    One interesting aspect of the iconic Rialto Bridge is the padlocks. Apparently inspired by "I Want You", the 2006 novel by Federico Moccia, this practice involves couples writing their names on their padlock, swearing eternal love and throwing the keys into the Grand Canal below. There were a lot of locks of love, when Gayle and I were there and ...

    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.

    Want to feel really creeped out by touristing around a sight with a lot of actually pretty sad history? This is the bridge for you.

    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!

    Burano is a cute little island near Venice. It used to be the lace-maker's island, but now it's mostly fishermen and tourist's shops. The brightly colored houses are worth the visit as are a few good restaurants.

    Canals of Venice

    37 reviews

    Do you know why Venice is surrounded and infused by water? The city was originally a creation of the Byzantines, who tried to reconquer Italy during the 6th century AD. Eventually the Byzantines were flushed out and the colony of Venice, which was then located on the mainland, was isolated. At the onset of the Lombard invasions the Venetians realized ...

    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

    For a few euro, get up early and take the grand canal vaporetto (I think it's number 1 or 7) and travel from the station to san marco or vice versa. So much cheaper than the water taxis and if you stand outside you get the view with the locals rather than the tourists. Bliss!

    Rialto Markets

    27 reviews

    I'm a sucker for markets and the Rialto Market does not disappoint. Granted, at the time that we were there, there were more people taking pictures of the food than there were people shopping for fish (guilty as charged). Food looked delicious too. Only wish I had space and facilities to try some of what they offered.

    Ponte dell'Accademia

    24 reviews

    I'm surprised this bridge is not as crowded as Ponte Rialto. It's quiet and offers a stunning view of the canal. You can easily get a postcard shot here!

    Lido Island

    There is a nice street on Lido that everybody walks down at night packed with restaurants. A nice change of pace from Venice.

    The Venetian arsenal was a complex of state-owned shipyards and armories clustered together in Venice in northern Italy. It was responsible for the bulk of Venice's naval power during the middle part of the second millennium AD. It was built around 1100 with a marked byzantine style. One part of it is nowadays dedicated to host the famous Biennale expo. ...
