Lord Byron called Venice "the magic city of the heart". Even a fleeting acquaintance with the “pearl of the Adriatic” will convince you of the poet's rightness. On a guided excursion of the canals that girdle Venice, you will be mesmerized by the monumental palaces and cathedrals with stone steps descending right into the splashing waters. Urban landscapes will cause a flurry of emotions: legendary bridges, lonely islands, sandy beaches.
1001guide warns first-time travelers to Venice of the following:
- cars are prohibited in the city on the water; all types of transport are “floating” there - from water taxis and vaporettos (public ferries) to ambulances and garbage trucks;
- prices in Venice crowded with guests (their flow has not diminished for 1500 years) can be twice or three times higher than in other places in Italy, but this city is so beautiful that it is worth your every cent;
- leave excess luggage at home freeing up space in your backpack for the main thing - a video camera or a photo camera.
In addition to a sightseeing excursion in English, you will be offered exciting encounters with masterpieces of art masters. With a personal guide, you can visit the iconic sites of cultural Venice:
- Academy Gallery;
- Glass museum;
- Doge's Palace;
- St. Mark's Cathedral.
After that, all that remains will to taste Venice. Stop by one of the wine bars (bacaro) and order a glass of wine (un ombra) with a seafood appetizer (cicchetti). Buon appetito!
