INTRODUCTION TO VenicE TRAVEL

There is no city quite like Venice. It is a magical place full of mystery and wonder. From the majestic Grand Canal to the hidden smaller waterways, there is beauty around every corner. Over 400 bridges cross the canals of Venice, eventually leading you to magnificent Piazza San Marco, dominated by the basilica of the same name, its campanile (belltower) and maginificent Palazzo Ducale. 

Most of your days in Venice are spent simply wandering and admiring this unique city but if you feel like taking to the water, the outer islands hold many charms. From colorful Burano to the glass blowers of Murano, these islands each have their own unique history, stories and culture.

What to see in VENICE

All journeys to Venice should start with a ride down the Grand Canal. Gliding past the elegant palazzi and watching the gondolas, service boats and water taxis zip across the water is one of the world’s must do experiences.
