As you explore the maze of narrow streets and small bridges, it becomes abundantly clear that Venice offers a wide variety of different faces. Or masks to be more precise. From the aristocratic Doges’ Palace and Teatro La Fenice down to the Rialto Markets working class.
The amazing buildings, architecture and sceneries stage stories like Casanova and Othello. Venice is unmistakable romantic. If you really want your trip to be extra special, you should take a Gondola ride through the canals followed by a candle light dinner and a great glass of wine.
Venice is called the city of bridges and it has a lot of them, 409 to be exact, still getting around the city is not as easy as you would think. Bridges between the main islands are scarce and quite hard to find and crossing the main canals might be easier by Gondola. Since the inner city is a pedestrian zone, the only public transport is by boat. Unfortunately getting to the sights is easier by foot so be sure to wear some comfortable shoes.
