Day Trips to Venice
A city of immense beauty and history, Venice is unlike any other city in Italy. Being the capital of the Veneto Region in Northern Italy, Venice lies on 117 small islands that are connected by numerous canals and a series of bridges. It’s a relatively small city, but the most popular tourist destination in the country.
A Touch of Venice
If you have only a day to spend in Venice, you have to stay busy. St. Mark’s Basilica, St. Mark’s Square, Ponte di Rialto, Gallerie dell’Academia, and the Bridge of Sighs are only a small part of what Venice holds. Lovers of architecture will also enjoy Chiesa de Santa Maria Assunta, Doge’s Palace, San Marco Campanile, and Basilica di Santa Maria Della Salute. The Grand Canal attracts millions of tourists every year.
The Fairy-tale City
If you opt to stay longer in Venice, prepare yourself for an amazing tour – discovering the pleasures of the beautiful life (la bella vita), the gondoliers’ wake-up calls, lunches in crowded bars, and gorgeous sunsets. Venice remains the dream destination for romantic souls who cannot miss out on a gondola ride and make their Venetian experience magical.
