Sightseeing

The enigmatic city of Venice attracts millions of visitors each year, all charmed by this alluring and captivating unique lagoon sanctuary.

Prices are through the roof for property, accommodation prices are higher than anywhere else in Italy, yet the magic of Venice is still all too real and apparent as this treasure trove of art, history, romance and visually breathtaking scenery continues to attract tourists like bees to honey.

It is worth visiting Venice alone just to take in the atmosphere and surroundings. To meander down the Grand Canal in a city whose streets are made of water, whilst century’s old palatial mansions rise majestically out of the water on either side and gondola’s pass up and down and under the numerous bridges is sheer delight.

This is Venice as many will ‘know’ it, but the city has a vast and colourful history going back centuries which can be recounted through the its many museums, galleries, buildings and churches. Venice hosts some of the finest artwork from the Renaissance period and is the birthplace of some of the most revered composers and artists of their time.

Any visitor to Venice will of course be unable to miss (or leave without seeing) St Mark’s Square and the Basilica and the Rialto bridge, which are part and parcel of any tourist itinerary, but Venice has a multitude of attractions, history and scenery to keep even the most demanding guest occupied round the clock.

Did you Know?!?

Venice can usually be found at the business end of many lists and websites of Europe’s best and most romantic cities to visit.
