    Piazza San Marco

    168 reviews

    Despite the crowds and all, I love waking up in Venice and strolling into the Piazza San Marco. It's so alive and so magnificent. Sitting at the cafes there at night is breathtaking. The Basilica looks almost like a painting in the dark. I highly recommend sitting down at Caffe Quaddri for some wine and Caprese salad.

    Grand Canal

    84 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 ...

    Basilica di San Marco

    98 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.

    Rialto Bridge

    97 reviews

    The Rialto Bridge was built in the late 16th century, and is rather unique in that it was designed to allow Venetian warships to sail underneath the bridge. If you want a great view of the Grand Canal, this is the place to go.

    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.

    Palazzo Ducale

    38 reviews

    The Palazzo Ducale, built in Venetian Gothic style, was the residence of the Doge of Venice, the supreme authority of the Republic of Venice. It opened as a museum in 1923. The regular tour of the Doge's Palace is interesting enough. Within this Complex's Gothic civic architecture, every stone, passageway and artwork seemed to evoke the power that the former ...

    Basilica di Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari

    13 reviews

    This church contains some great works of art, most notably the Assumption of the Virgin by Titian, which is considered by some to be one of the most beautiful paintings in the world. Finding the church is not the easiest but well worth the effort to look at the Titian, Bellini and other paintings.

    Gondola Service

    56 reviews

    We thoroughly enjoyed our Gondola ride through the winding Venetian canals. The elderly gentleman that took us around had a very sweet, soft, but talented voice. We look forward to the next excursion through the Venice labyrinth.

    Ponte dell'Accademia

    24 reviews

    Although all the bridges in Venice were unique and charming in their own way, the three bridges crossing the Grand Canal were the most impressive. This bridge is somewhat less crowded, and offers great souvenir shopping nearby.

    This votive Church was built in the late sixteenth century, and by votive I mean this Church was dedicated in fullfillment of a vow. In 1575 Venice was decimated by the plague, losing almost 40% of it's population. The Venice governmnent decided to build a Church for those that perished. It was built by the great Palladio!
