A few words on Venice
Venice, which stands among the most fascinating cities in the world, used to be a very popular harbour for international trade, during the Middle-Ages and the Renaissance eras. Then, the city became a real source of inspiration for many artists who designed most of the city's beauties.
Made of many islands, Venice used to be an independent republic governed by the Doges and has kept its own specificities and its lovely anachronism.
The carnival, the canals and their famous gondolas, the very crowded but romantic St Mark's Place, the Doge's Palace and the rather elitist movie festival of the Mostra… all are to be seen in Venice. Don't forget the fishermen's islands, such as Burano, Torcello or Murano, which deserved to be discovered for their colourful and wild aspects contrasting with Venice's frenzy.
Describing the atmosphere that rules the Serenissima is almost an impossible thing to do. You definitely have to experience it before the rise in the water level ruins such a unique elegance.
A few pictures on Venice
A mix of different styles in this traditional area. Churches and synagogues sit alongside each other. It is also the most economical part of the city.
Luxurious hotels, glaring churches and trendy restaurants. All area strive to be the best in this district. Also the district where the Venice Biennial takes place.
An area that can't be ignored; check out icons such as the Guggenheim, or the Dell'Academia Gallery. This district has kept its ancient simplicity, with a floating market and warehouses. We highly recommend it!
Lofts, art galeries, theatres…A trendy, creative atmosphere, and certainly full of life. Perhaps a little too expensive, which might take the shine off your expedition. Nevertheless, we recommend that you pay a visit!
If you're keen to have a look at some Italian beauties (during the Mostra Festival), we suggest that you rent a bike and discover this wonderful island. Enjoy its crowded beaches...
The Doge's Palace, St Mark's Place, Fenice, St Mark's basilica… These areas are not just for tourists alone. They are literally full of life!
The Rialto Markets lie very close to the former Red Light District. We suggest that you take a peek at some of the craftsmen's workshops.
Visit this area if you want a little fresh air. Also a great place to escape the noisy Venitian city centre. Basically, you will discover the kingdom of underground subculture surrounded by museums.
