Piazza San Marco, 30124 Venezia VE, Italy
Since I was a teenager, Venice has captivated my imagination and sustained my love of beauty, history, and of course, travel. When I graduated from college I decided to take myself on my first trip to Europe. I arrived in Venice in mid-July and...

Piazza San Marco, 328, 30124 Venezia VE, Italy
When planning a May trip to Italy with my husband, magical Venice was one of the cities I knew I wanted to visit. I was really looking forward to seeing all the things typically associated with Venice: gondolas, the Grand Canal, St. Mark's Square,...

Sestiere San Polo, 30125 Venezia VE, Italy
As a boat whisk you away to your destination and your journey through the Grand Canal is both hectic and enchanting, your first impression of Rialto Bridge is magical.
Save Place
The Gallerie dell'Accademia, located quite close to the Rialto along the Grand Canal, offers a sweeping look at nearly hundreds of years of Italian art, including works by Tintoretto and Titian. Not to be missed.

Venice is one of the most romantic cities in Italy, and some might even consider it to be the most romantic city in the world. There are only four bridges that cross the Grand Canal in Venice, and Ponte dell'Accademia is one of them. Since the...

Piazza San Marco, 1, 30122 Venezia VE, Italy
As it's one of the most popular sights in Venice, you may have to wait for the perfect spot to view the Bridge of Sighs, but it's so beautiful that it's worth the effort. Part of the Doge's palace, the bridge leads to the prison, and it was said...

Go back in time to Casanova's Venice at this perfectly preserved palazzo. Built in the heyday of Venice's decadent 18th century for the Rezzonico family, it was also, at one time, the residence of poet Robert Browning (who died here). In the 1930s...

Dorsoduro, 701-704, 30123 Venezia VE, Italy
Venice at pretty much any angle is a perfect shot. This photo was taken on the dock of the Guggenheim museum in Venice. The museum has one of the best collections of Surrealist art that I've seen.

Piazza San Marco, 1, 30124 Venezia VE, Italy
A must-see in Venice is the Doge's Palace in Piazza San Marco. The palace dates from the 14th century, and was the residence of the Doges of Venice. On view is the splendor of high Venetian style—Byzantine and Moorish architectural...
Save Place
Sestiere di S. Marco, 30124 Venezia VE, Italy
Housed in a palazzo originally built by an aristocratic Venetian family in the Gothic era, the current Palazzo Mocenigo was built in the 17th century for the San Stae branch of the Mocenigo family—power brokers that produced a Doge. The building...

One of the last grand palazzos to be built on the Grand Canal, the Grassi Palace is currently owned by French entrepreneur Francois Pinault and his collection of contemporary art can be seen here on a rotating basis. It is also where his son...

Forget about gondolas or water taxis: The way to see Venice like a local is by the Venice waterbus. The city's grand palazzos were meant to be approached by water, and this is the accessible and affordable way to do it. We recommend getting an...
Save Place
The traditional black gondola might be somewhat sinister-looking—Byron called it "a coffin clapped in a canoe"—but it is an iconic and unmissable Venice experience. Ask to glide over backwater areas rather than on the Grand Canal, and...
Save Place
Venice, Metropolitan City of Venice, Italy
Most tourists get to Venice's famous Rialto Bridge, but how many cross to the right bank of the Grand Canal to experience the Erberia (vegetable market) and the Pescheria (fish market)? Elbowing my way through the crowds on the Rialto was worth...
Save Place
The Museo Ebraico di Venezia is located between two historic synagogues in the city's Jewish ghetto. In fact, the very word ghetto has its origins here in Venice, where Jews played an important, but segregated, part. The small museum has a...

Campo San Fantin, 1965, 30124 Venezia VE, Italy
Aptly named after the phoenix, this opera house has risen from its own ashes three times, the last in the 1990s when it was burned in an act of arson. It was rebuilt in the same ornate style as the building that had been destroyed—a choice...
Save Place
Campo San Moisè, 1390/A, 30124 Venezia VE, Italy
The Church of Saint Moses is a Baroque edifice located where the Piazza San Marco ends and the winding streets of Venice begin. Unlike other city churches that have been turned into museums or music venues, this is still very much a working church...
Save Place
San Marco, 3958, 30124 Venezia VE, Italy
Look around any shop in Venice and you'll see characteristic velvets and silks in all the colors of the rainbow. It was designer Mario Fortuny who first created the fluted fabrics that are still coveted by costume and fashion designers all over...

30126 Lido, Metropolitan City of Venice, Italy
You've probably heard of the famous islands within the lagoon of Venice from Murano to Burano but you may not have heard of Lido. Lido is the only island where cars are permitted and there is a long stretching beach ideal for tanning, sipping on...
