What We Love About Venice

Unlike most cities in the world, you can simply walk through or ride through the landmarks at ease - but Venice isn't just any ordinary city - it's built over a lagoon. Although you won't find roads in this part of Italy, you will definitely feast your eyes on some magnificent architecture! Hop aboard a water taxi and start your Venetian adventure at the Grand Canal and Rialto Bridge. Without these landmarks - there would be no Venice. The canals are lined with Renaissance and Gothic palaces and piazzas like Saint Mark's Basilica, Piazza San Marco, and Doge's Palace! You can also opt to take a quick boat ride to Burano, where coloured houses reign supreme.
