No doubt, Venice is the most beautiful city in Italy. 100 small islands lined up with Gothic and Renaissance architecture, museums, and churches is just something to marvel at. There are a plethora of things that you can do out here. If you are planning a trip to Venice anytime soon, here are a few things that you need to check out.
St. Mark’s Basilica
The first attraction I visited is the most building in this city. I was amazed by the architecture of this sublime piece. It had been established in 1092 and is considered to be an important religious building to be found in Northern Italy. I completely fell in love with the church. You can easily reach here from the Grand Canal as it is located in Piazza San Marco. This is one of the greatest examples of Italian Byzantine design.
St. Mark’s Square
Now, it is time to visit the most popular piazza, St. Mark’s Square. It is situated on Grand Canal just opposite of San Giorgio Maggiore Island. The ornate buildings and the arched walkways add to the beauty of the square. Many important buildings are to be found on this square such as St. Mark’s Basilica, St. Marks Campanile, Torre Dell’Orologio, and Doge’s Palace. For me, this is the perfect place to start your journey.
There are many canals connecting the city and many islands. One of the largest islands is Canale Grande. It will take you from the side of Venice to the other. It is an important waterway of the city. Apart from traveling along it, I also walked different sections of the canal. The busy water traffic was something I hadn’t seen before.
Ponte Di Rialto
This is one of the bridges that span over the Grand Canal. Missing out on this attraction would have been a mistake. It connects San Polo and San Marco districts of Venice.
