Venice Things to do

 

When you are in Venice...

 

Lose yourself in Venice. There's no better way to discover the hidden beauties of Venice than wandering aimlessly about its streets. Let the magic imperfection of the calli take you on a different journey away from the crowd and uncover the most secret parts of the city.

Go to Piazza San Marco at night or at dawn. This is the best way to appreciate its splendor when the tourists are gone or not there yet.

Make a Vaporetto tour along the Gran Canal. The best way to visit Venice is by walking, but to admire the long sequence of the wonderful palazzos on the Gran Canal you want to take a vaporetto of line 2 from Santa Lucia station up to San Marco's square.

Go to San Giorgio Island and climb the bell tower of San Giorgio's church, you will have an amazing view of Venice.

Take a walk in Rialto Market early in the morning and see Venetian ladies going about their groceries, fishmongers preparing the stalls and its unique atmosphere building up.

Visit Peggy Guggenheim museum of modern art and have an espresso in its lovely café.

Have an aperitivo on the rooftop terrace Skyline Bar of the Hilton Mulino Stucky on the Giudecca Island. More expensive than other places in Venice but the view makes it all worth!
