Welcome to Venice, Italy
Venice is a city in northeastern Italy and the capital of the Veneto region. It is situated across a group of 117 small islands that are separated by canals and linked by bridges. Venice has been known as the “La Dominante,” “Serenissima,” “Queen of the Adriatic,” “City of Water,” “City of Masks,” “City of Bridges,” “The Floating City,” and “City of Canals.” Venice is widely considered Italy’s (and the world’s) most beautiful and romantic city.
Where is Venice ?
What to see in Venice ?
See three major sights in one square – Standing in the middle of the magnificent piazza San Marco is an experience in itself. Get around in a gondola, and take a trip down the Grand Canal.
San Giorgio Maggiore – The island opposite St. Mark’s Square offers breathtaking views.
The Campanile is the city’s tallest building, it offers you a bird’s-eye view of Venice. Also, you have to visit the Basilica di San Marco and Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute.
Ok, to conclude, everything in Venice is worth seeing. You will enjoy it!
Do you like art?
If you like museums, than visit: Museo di Storia Naturale, Museo della Musica, Fondazione Giorgio Cini, Museo Archeologico Nazionale, Pinacoteca Manfrediniana, Le Macchine di Leonardo, Casa di Carlo Goldoni, Accademia Gallery and others. If you more like theaters, there are La Fenice opera house and Teatro Malibran.
Do you like shopping ?
A mix of low-end trinket stores and middle-market-to-upscale boutiques line the narrow zigzagging Mercerie running north between Piazza San Marco and the Rialto Bridge.
Do you like night outs ?
Remember that nightlife venues in Venice aren’t always what you’d expect For night time action, make for Campo Santa Margherita in Dorsoduro, or Fondamenta della Misericordia in the northern Cannaregio area. High culture has its home at the La Fenice opera house and the Teatro Malibran.
What to eat ?
I would recomend you Venice Pizza.Also, you should try Sarde in saor, Baccala mantecato, Risotto al nero di seppia, Risi e bisi, Mołéche, Fritole.
All in all, It’s small and compact, and the traffic-free streets (no vehicles allowed) along the winding canals are great for walking and sight-seeing. There are many magnificent buildings, lively piazzas and interesting shops here. Venice is one of the cities that I have been in, and I don’t know really what to say. It isn’t the most beautiful city, but It has something that others don’t have. It really deserves a visit. I am sure You will enjoy, I have.
