Venice Holidays – Italy: Things to Do – What, How and Why to visit the City


Hi everyone, and welcome to Venice! What to say about this amazing city?
Well, 118 small islands separated by canals and linked by over 400 bridges.
The first real financial power emerging in the 9th century.
You can call it “La Serenissima”, the “Queen of the Adriatic”,
the “City of Masks”, the “City of Bridges”, the “City of Water”.
We are speaking probably about the most beautiful city all around the world! So, if you have a couple of days to visit
it and you don’t wanna getting lost, which are the most relevant attractions to
see, things to do and places to taste Italian food? The first treasure you will meet is Ponte
di Rialto, the most iconic bridge here, which will bring you in San Marco district,
the center of Venice. From here you can admire Grand Canal, the
main “route” in Venice. Here, consider to ride a Vaporetto, a water
bus, which is a great way and the least expensive one, to visit the
Canal and its palaces. From Ponte Rialto move towards St. Mark’s
Square, where you can admire 4 of the Venice’s major
attractions: St. Mark’s Basilica, a Byzantine marvel,
Campanile, Torre dell’Orologio, and the Doge’s Palace –
a Gothic palace, seat of the government under the Venetian
Republic. After seeing the wonders of St. Mark’s Square, you could add these nearby attractions to your trip. The name Bridge of Sighs derives from the
fact that it was the last thing convicts saw before their incarceration. I suggest you, take a morning or an afternoon
to visit the islands of Burano, Murano and Torcello. Murano is famous for its historical manufacturing
industry. If you arrive by train or by bus from the
airport, I suggest you follow this daily route: start your trip sweetly passing by the Rio
Marin bakery, to move then to Ponte di Rialto. From there,
reach St. Mark’s Square. Once visited its attractions, you could go
to Bridge of Sighs, Scala Contarini Del Bovolo, Gallerie Dell’accademia,
Basilica Di Santa Maria Della Salute, to end walking around the Jewish Ghetto. Each attraction is no more than 20 minutes
walk from each other. If you want visit the islands of Burano, Murano
and Torcello, it takes 5 hours and costs 20 euros with the
Serevè Agency. For lunch, I suggest a quick but tasty meal
at Enoteca Al Volto. In the afternoon, you can refresh yourself
with an ice cream in Suso Gelatoteca. For dinner, I suggest Trattoria da’a Marisa. If you are planning to visit Europe, why you
should visit Venice? Well, there are several reasons. It will be something like going back to the
past, which means you will find exactly the same views seen
by Casanova or Napoleon. Venice is a city on the water, something
of unique. Tasting Italian food, is another good reason! But the main reason is its beauty: “beauty
will save the world”, probably, but for sure this beauty will make
you happy! And don’t forget to subscribe to my travel
