Venice, the city on the water, one of the most beautiful cities in the world. It is an outdoor museum to experience slowly, without a car, moving between the characteristic streets and bridges by boat or gondola.
The heart of Venice is Piazza San Marco, the city's salon, with the Venetian Doge’s Palace, the symbol of the Republic of Venice in its heyday, and the Torre dei Mori and the Napoleonic Wing with the Correr Museum.
The list of things to see in Venice is long: don't miss Palazzo Grassi, Punta della Dogana and the old harbor, or the Peggy Guggenheim Collection at the Palazzo Venier de' Leoni. The museums continue with the Accademia Gallery, housed by the majestic complex of the Great School of Charity, and Ca' Rezzonico, one of the finest Renaissance buildings which houses the Museum of Eighteenth-Century Venice.
Also from Piazza San Marco, cross the famous Bridge of Sighs to arrive in the sestriere (district) of Castello, one of the largest in the city, and rich in architectural and artistic masterpieces.
Also worth seeing is the old Jewish quarter, and just by walking around streets and small squares that hold treasures.
Venice is the ideal destination for a cultural vacation or to attend some of the big international events; the Art Biennale, the Film Festival, the Venice Carnival, and the Historical Regatta.
Another spectacular event is the fires of the Feast of the Redeemer, the celebration closest to the hearts of Venetians, which is held in the summer.
Venice also has a history of craftsmanship, with Murano blown glass and lace from Burano.
The lagoon's landscapes are enchanting, and you can live a seaside vacation with a retro atmosphere in Lido di Venezia, with beautiful sandy beaches and the Adriatic Sea, which has never been so chic.
