Voluptuous Venice, one day this incredible city may be no more. Every year the water levels climb as efforts are made to protect Italy’s spectacular watery heritage city. Venice comprises hundreds of petite islands with a lagoon. With its hefty wealth of exciting historical treasures, Venice is considered a highlight on all tours of Italy.

For ease of navigation around the city, Venice is divided into 6 individual characteristic zones perched upon a series of canals, piazzas and alleyways. The zones each possess their own idiosyncrasies such as the student quarter, which is located in the Dorsoduro zone and the site of many impressive historical attractions are found in the San Marco zone.

Castello is where the Venice Art Biennale is staged and the Cannaregio is the home of the historic ghetto. The remaining 2 zones are those of Santa Croce and San Polo.

There are many reasons to visit Venice, the 9th century St Mark’s Basilica is one and St Mark’s Square is another! Dating back to the fourteenth century, the attractively decorated exterior walls of the Doge’s Palace continue to defy the square’s ubiquitous pigeons.

The Grand Canal is considered to be the city’s most popular walkway. Flanked both sides by resplendent Palazzi buildings and cultured in the styles of the renaissance and gothic to walk along here is to journey back in time. While you are here, look out for the tourist hotspot of the Rialto Bridge and its wooden cousin the Academy Bridge.

Art lovers couldn’t find themselves in more apt surroundings with so many galleries about exhibiting all kinds of art from ancient to contemporary. Galleries on offer here include the Galleria dell’Accademia with its Guggenheim collection and impressive Venetian paintings from the 14th to the 18th centuries. The Museo Correr offers Venetian painting in neo-classical surroundings while the Barovier Gallery exhibiting glass sculpture from the 12th to the 19th centuries.

The Basilica dei Frari is worth hunting down for its collection of Titian and Bellini among others while the Museo del ‘700 Veneziano is able to show works by Canaletto, Longhi and Guardi as well as Tiepolo frescoes with its 18th century venetian palace interior.

Picture this scary hypothetical situation because it could easily happen to you. You are in Venice during the summer, it is really sizzling hot and you suddenly need to escape the noisy chaos of what has become Venice tourist Hell…what do you do? Remedy: Go and find ‘La Serenissima’! Within close proximity of the main walkways within minutes away you will find serenity in the form of a peaceful square with a beautiful gothic church to boot, as a rule of thumb. That’s Venice!

To avoid the busy crowds, it may pay off to visit the city during the winter. Although you will need to prepare for freezing cold conditions, the benefits are such that hotels offer excellent deals and you are much more likely to book in at the drop of a hat! However things are different during February. At the same time every year, Venice becomes packed with masquerading revellers for its Carnival event. To avoid disappointment, February is one month during the winter that you will be required to book in advance

While sight seeing in Venice you may find it worthwhile to purchase a Venice Card. For Euro 28 you will get unlimited entry to all museums, unlimited use of public transport as well as unlimited toilets usage.

Upon your arrival in Venice, the road ends at the Stazione Lucia railway station at the Piazzale Roma. You can only progress from here into the city on foot or much more dramatically (should you so desire), on the water! The fares for water taxis are three times the rate of a normal taxi ride while the waterbus known as the motoscafi runs every hour to San Marco at a reasonable rate of Euro 8.

The lack of space and roads is one of the reasons for the city’s more senior citizens. This city is not equipped to encourage young people to settle here. While Venice is said to have a higher age range than other European cities, the youth, home grown chaos and traditional horn-honkers are found in vast supply out of Venice in the surrounding towns.

While in Venice you are well placed to enjoy some really interesting attractions upon certain Venetian Islands. If you have managed so far, to avoid water transport, resist no longer, for these popular tourist hotspots are worth the trouble. The island Torcello’s Byzantine Basilica is fascinating, while the glassmaking artisans of Murano and Burano lacemakers never fail to provide tempting souvenir treats.

When in Venice, (if you can drag yourself away from the city’s rich treasures of palazzos and piazzas, well after all, when you have seen one Canaletto…) you are well placed to explore the town of Treviso. With its painted houses and historic ambience, it takes a hearty determination to cast off Dante’s Paradise from your holiday itinerary!
