Today we are going to one of the most visited cities in the world. I don’t even need to say the name, from the title you already know. Venice. The city of gondolas, the most romantic city in the world!

Today we will explore everything the city has to offer, its lines and especially the city’s canals. It is a true open-air museum. When you least expect it, you walk through the streets and come across squares and stretches of the river cutting through the city.

First tip

In Venice, besides your mobile phone with GPS, your best friend is a city map, so when you arrive at your hotel already ask for the city map, because usually hotels can give you a free one, because if you go around town, you will possibly have to buy your map!

Why a paper map? Because they have the tourist points elucidated in order to guide the tourist through the main places. Why spend money when you can have one for free.

What is the most famous bridge in Venice?

At the top of the Rialto Bridge, it is surely the most famous bridge in Venice and also the busiest. It is practically impossible to stand on top without bumping into the crowd. It is super large, it has a corridor in the middle that is one of the people cross, on both sides there are shops and then there is a corridor on each side that you can get beautiful views of the Grand Canal of Venice.

A curiosity, it was built in 1591, and for 300 years, until the 19th century, it was the only bridge crossing that big canal of Venice, so the only option for a long time was this bridge.

This place is for sure a must stop for anyone visiting Venice!

Is it true that Venice has thefts?

One important thing for you to be aware of, Venice has a high rate of theft, you have to be careful with pockets, mobile phones, wallets, backpacks, thieves open the bags to get things because it is a very crowded environment. But it is not because of that that you will not come, just try to pay attention.

The view from the top of the bridge is beautiful, but a tip, get off the bridge and go see from the point where you take public transport, the bridge, because it is very beautiful and you can take several pictures.

To give you an idea, there is a queue to take a photo at certain parts of the river, to take a photo people get impatient, so you take your photo and pass the turn to the next kkkkkkkk that’s how it is.

Near the Rialto Bridge, on both sides there are many restaurants and snack bars, with a window full of pizza, sweets, and the habit is to get a piece of square pizza and go walking and eating around the city. So don’t run away from this tradition, near the Rialto Bridge, get your piece and eat it and take lots of pictures around Venice.

From this point you can go to Piazza San Marco which is a very emblematic place in Venice. Remembering that it is very difficult to walk in Venice if you do not know it, so either you have to have a map in hand or you have to have a phone with internet and search on Google Maps the place you want to go.

Visiting Piazza San Marco

Arriving in the main square of Venice, Piazza San Marco. If you are in Venice or planning to go, and want to choose a place to visit, it has to be this place. That’s because many of the sights of the city are gathered in this place.

There is the Clock Tower, the Basilica of Saint Mark, the Palazzo del Cale, which is one of the main palaces in Venice, a very high tower which is the Campanile. And this bell tower has a curious story because it was built around 1100, it remained the same for several centuries, without any changes, only that in 1902 it collapsed. The people of the city were super moved and proposed to build the tower in the same way as it was before. 10 years later, in 1912, the tower was rebuilt and it is possible to go up by lift to the top of this tower.

Taking the lift and going up 99 meters, from the top you have a 360 degree view, but it is not possible to see all the canals, the buildings are high and prevent the view of the canals that are very narrow. You can only see the big canals.

Basilica of San Marco

In the main hallway at the entrance of the Basilica of San Marco, a really important place, and to visit the church you don’t pay. Another information is that you can not enter with backpacks, do not try to go with yours because someone will bar you, but there is a place where you can leave your backpack for free for up to an hour.

Pala d’Oro

You don’t actually pay to enter the church, but you can’t visit the most important part of the church without paying, which is the Pala d’Oro at the back of the church. The visit to the Pala d’Oro costs €2.

In total there are 1927 gemstones, being:

  • 526 pearls
  • 330 grenades
  • 320 emeralds
  • 255 sapphires
  • 183 amethysts
  • 175 agates
  • 75 rubies
  • 34 topaz
  • 16 cornaline
  • 13 jaspers

Being in this city is something inexplicable, it really is a unique place, it is known as the most beautiful city in the world and I think it really is. It’s nice to stay first in a hotel inside Venice so you can have the experience of what it’s like to stay in the city. It’s nice to have a complete experience, it will cost a little more, but it’s worth it. There are many classic hotels here in Venice, in centenary buildings.
