It is doubtful anyone sets out for Venice for a relaxing
holiday, a quiet escape or a get-away-from-it-all refuge.
Venice is not built for this of course and is famed for
quite the opposite, with people desperate to sample the
sights and sounds of the city, to fight their way among
the thousands of other tourists in bids to see and discover
famous landmarks, historical structures and stunning scenery.
Many people utilise the numerous types of guided tours
available, many others choose to explore the city on foot
and by water. All will surely have visited the prominent
and famous landmarks which mark Venice whilst others will
also endeavour to see the rich pickings in the art galleries,
churches and museums which populate the city.
Many more may pick specific times of the year to visit
with a particular event in mind such as a regatta, carnival
or other theatrical events.
In a nutshell, Venice is unlikely to disappoint or prove
dull to any visitor. The spectacle of just being in Venice
itself is worth the admission money alone, before you even
begin to discover this remarkable city’s wealth of
highlights, sights and activities, entertainment and visual
is an excellent site on Venice, covering everything for
the tourist and including a section on free things to see
and do whilst in the city.

months, remember that bare torsos or lounging around enjoying
the sun on or near landmarks and monuments is unlikely to
be met with approval by the authorities.
