Venice is a complex of 118 small islands, divided by the canals of the Venetian Archipelago and connected to each other with bridges. Traditionally an important marine and commercial centre of the Mediterranean, Venice was annexed to Italy in 1866.
Today, Venice has a population of 270,000, but it attracts millions of visitors, since it’s a top travel destination for European and international travellers, all year round.
Venice, apart from a romantic and idyllic location, is a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Visitors in Venice get to ride a gondola, eat Italian delicious food, admire world class sights and visit excellent museums and art galleries, while, at the same time, experiencing an atmosphere that greatly resembles a fairy-tale. No wonder Venice is one of Italy’s most popular destinations! Visit wonderful Venice and see for yourself!
Venice’s airport (Aeroporto di Venezia Marco Polo) is located 8 kilometres north of Venice and can be reached by water buses, water taxis and buses from the railway station Venice Mestre.
Getting around Venice
You can get around Venice on foot, but you can move from one island to another by water buses (Vaporetto). Vaporetto fares cost 18.00-35.00€ and are valid for 12-72 hours and minimum taxi fare costs around 2.80€.
Venice is divided into six districts (sestieri).
The best place for you to start your day in Venice is the San Marco square (Piazza San Marco), the largest and most famous square in Venice, with three of the city’s most recognisable landmarks:
- The Basilica di San Marco, dating back to the 9th century, famous for its impressive mosaics, elegant statues and rich decorations with gold and marble elements.
- The San Marco bell tower (Campanile di San Marco), standing 98-metre-high next to the Basilica. The tower is pyramid-shaped, has 5 bells and is topped with a weather vane depicting archangel Gabriel.
- The Venetian Gothic Palazzo Ducale, with 3 wings that seem endless and are decorated with excellent Tintoretto and Veronese masterpieces.
East of the square, the neighbourhood is called Castello and boasts many churches and the famous Arsenale di Venezia. At the opposite side of the Canal Grande, you will come across the Dorsoduro district, home of many art galleries.
The Rialto Bridge is Venice’s oldest marble bridge. Spanning the Canal Grande, it connects the San Polo to the Santa Croce district. Visit in the afternoon and admire the marvellous view to San Marco and the gondolas.
If you enjoy art, you can visit Venice’s largest and most important contemporary art museum, the Guggenheim Museum, situated across the Canal Grande. There you will find beautiful collections of Picasso, Kandinsky and many more, as well as a great Surrealist collection; Peggy Guggenheim was the wife of Max Ernst after all.Venice’s official language is Italian.
