Things to Do When In Venice

Monday, February 25th, 2013

travel to veniceA budget trip to Venice is very much possible. Forget the map for the best way to explore Venice is on foot. This way you can appreciate the architecture and the various museums

You can take the vaporetto (water taxi) for a tour of the Grand Canal and get down at St. Mark’s Square. Check the clock tower here.

The square also houses St Mark’s Basilica; you can appreciate its Byzantine Architecture.  Visit the Rialto Bridge; it is beautifully made of stone connecting the two banks of the Grand Canal.

While returning through the canal see how beautifully the ancient buildings are lit up.

Visit the Jewish Ghetto. It houses buildings taller than other parts of the city. Since the Jews couldn’t expand sideways, they added more storey’s to their houses.

You can also visit parks like the Giardini Napoleonici to have a small picnic away from the crowded streets.
