About Venice

Venice is a uniquely beautiful canal city. Located in northeastern Italy, the whole city lies on the water. Water is Venice's soul. The beautiful structures of the city are all reflected in the water, as though all of Venice is afloat and drifting calmly. The Grand Canal is the “road” that passes through the whole city of Venice. Take a gondola and experience the water city's unique style. Don’t forget to try Venice's unique Spaghetti al Nero di Seppia (pasta with squid ink) and buy an exquisite hand-made mask before you go. Venice's wonders are not limited to the city’s center. On the azure waters of the Venetian Lagoon, there are many wonderful outlying islands that have to be seen, such as Burano, Murano and the Lido di Venezia.

River
The Grand Canal, the Grand Canal of Venice, is Venice's main waterway, along the natural waterways from St. Mark's Church to the Church of St. Chiara, in an anti-S shape, from the Roman Forum in the northwest to St. Mark's Square in the city centre. It is connected to many small canals, and most of the city's transportation passes through these waterways. Take a water bus from the Roman Forum, walk between the ancient buildings on both sides of the strait, and enjoy the river of souls of Venice, you can feel the daily life of the Venetians living on the water.
Bridge of Sighs
4.5/5

Bridge
Today, custom holds that lovers should kiss under the bridge in order to seal their fate as soul mates. Oddly, the bridge got its name from the sullen prisoners' exasperations as they were ferried across the bridge, from the prison to the courts. Despite its somber purpose, the bridge actually looks very romantic from the outside-- perfect for a great photo.
Saint Mark's Basilica
4.6/5
589 Reviews
Church
Started in the 9th Century, Basilica di San Marco's architecture shows an eastern and Byzantine influence: note the golden altarpiece and the 13th and 14th-century mosaics that illustrate the cycles of the Bible. The magnificent domes date from the 12th Century. The Basilica houses the Marciano Museum, which contains the original bronze horses, copies of which are now on the terrace. Other great artworks are located in the Pala d'Oro , along with masterpieces of Gothic gold-smithing, located just behind the altar. At hundreds of years in the making, this beautiful basilica is not just a work of art itself, but houses some of the most important works of art in the world. Step inside (though mind the dress code) to marvel at the golden altarpiece, the mosaics dating back to the 13th century and which portray the cycles of the Bible, and the jaw-dropping domes. The basilica also houses the Marciano Museum and a wonderful display of the most amazing goldsmith work of the Gothic era.

Trip Moments

Take a water bus and stroll to Venice's famous St. Mark's Square, the heart of Venice's political, religious and traditional festivals. The plaza was built to commemorate the twelve saints of Jesus and the collection of trophies. There are many shops and cafes around the square, but because of being in the downtown area, it feels a bit noisy! The pigeons are scattered among the densely packed tourists. It is forbidden to feed the pigeons with food. The policemen and women are always staring at you. Transportation: Take the water bus blue line (Blu) to the S.Zaccaria terminal and disembark, then It takes 5 minutes to walk. Take the water bus to the Blue Line (Blu), the Orange Line (Arancio) or the Red Line (Rossa) to the S.Marco Pier.
