7 things to do in Venice

7 things to do in Venice

 Venice is one of the most romantic cities in the world; with long canal rides, and beautiful buildings, it is not hard to see why. Whether you’re going solo or with that special someone, here are the 7 things that are a must-do in Venice:

1. Visit St. Mark’s Basilica:

This elaborate church sits on the popular piazza by the same name. The church was built in honour of Saint Mark the evangelist. The basilica was crafted from many different styles of architecture, and today it is hard not to be entranced by its beauty. From the four bronze horses that guard the entrance to thousands of square feet of mosaics to the Pala d’Oro, you will be in awe of the beauty of the place. The basilica is open daily from 9:45 a.m. to 5 p.m. with abbreviated hours on Sunday and holidays.

2. Rowing Down the Streets of Venice:

One of the things that set Venice apart from the rest of the world is, that instead of streets made out of concrete and such, its streets are actually canals. And the Grand Canal is the main street of Venice; stretching 2-mile-long, the Grand Canal is one of the city’s most popular and highly photographed attractions. The Gondola ride makes for a romantic setting which you can enjoy with your significant other, though it may be a little expensive. Vaporetto lines No. 1 and 2 go down the Grand Canal, and it is strongly recommended that a travel card if you don’t plan on walking the entirety of your trip.

3. The sights of Rialto Bridge:

Next up we have Rialto Bridge, which has a deep connection with the Grand Canal. Because several centuries ago, if you wanted to cross the Canal, this bridge was the only way; granted there are several other options available now, it still has a historical significance. The bridge’s current incarnation is the handiwork of Antonio da Ponte, the bridge is built entirely of marble after collapsing multiple times from previous wooden designs.

4. Enjoy the World’s Finest Opera at Teatro La Fenice:

One of the most popular opera houses in the country, the opera house has an old world feel with intricately designed gold interiors outfitted with plush velvet chairs, giving off the perfect classic opera house vibe. A variety of dance, ballet, musical performances and operas are scheduled throughout the year. There also day tours available as well.

5. Companile di San Marco:

This articular bell tower that exists presently was constructed in the early 20th century, as the replica of the original 15th-century one. It pays a tribute to the original tower, that provided a stage for Galileo Galilei’s presentation of the telescope; it also served as a stage for tightrope walkers who would humour the doge with their feats during the flight of the Angel celebration. Today’s campanile is used for sightseers desiring a Venetian panorama. Though this view will be without the sight of canals, as they are not visible from that high up; most visitors say the attraction is well worth your time and makes for a great photo opportunity.

6. Enjoy a little History at St. Mark’s:

This place is considered to be the heart of Venice by many; as the largest square in the city, it is considered to be the heart of the city. Lining the square are multiple historical sites including St. Mark’s Basilica, St. Mark’s Campanile and Doge’s Palace, as well as a number of restaurants, making it the perfect spot for leisurely people-watching and wine sipping. Along with intricate architecture and hearty plates of spaghetti carbonara, visitors will also be met with throngs of tourists, pigeons and vendors selling souvenirs.

7. Bridge of Sighs:

Centuries ago, the bridge (which connects the Doge’s Palace to dungeons) was used to transport prisoners from the courtroom to the prisons. According to legend, the bridge is named after the sighs the prisoners took when they gazed upon the outside world for the last time. But on a lighter note, Venetian lore says if two lovers kiss on a gondola under the bridge, they’ll be granted eternal bliss. Travellers going to the bridge appreciated the details of the architecture and unique placement of the bridge, saying it was a nice photo op, especially while the gondolas passed underneath it.

Venice Guide


I arrived in Venice in Italy from the U.K, by plane for £60 a return ticket, it took 2 hour flight time.

Venice is a city in northeastern Italy sited on a group of 117 small islands separated by canals and linked by bridges. It is located in the marshy Venetian Lagoon which stretches along the shoreline, between the mouths of the Po and the Piave Rivers. Parts of Venice are renowned for the beauty of their settings, their architecture, and artwork. A part of the city is listed as a World Heritage Site, along with its lagoon.

Venice is a beautiful place with lots of architectural buildings, small winding canals, and narrow alleys.

I wouldn’t say Venice is a budget place however it’s not overly expensive, one thing you can be sure of is Venice is a perfect romantic retreat.

Venice is a city packed with things to do from exciting museums to chilled out gondola rides.

The food is fair priced however to be aware of the city tax that’s added to the bill, as well as 12% and a cover charge. You should expect to find lots of meat dishes, especially pizza and pasta.

Venice has enough to keep you entertained for a couple days and you should allow at least 3 days to see the best of Venice.

A water boat is available from Venice airport boathouse, connecting you  to Venice and the main Venetian islands (Murano, Burano, Lido). A single ticket cost 15 (£12) euros one way or a return for 27 (£21) euros and can be bought at the Public Transport ticket office in Venice airport arrivals hall or at the ticket office at the dock. To get to Venice water boat service, from the Arrivals hall exit and look to the left for the covered walkway and follow the walkway for 10 minutes until you reach the dock. Venice water service will take around 40 minutes.

There are other options such as bus: for a single is 8 euros (£6) and a return is 15 euros (£12) and should take around 25 minutes, however, this will drop you at the very top of Venice, due to no public transport within Venice apart from water boats.

Venice has a few extra charges that you may want to make note of which is kind of confusing.

Pane e coperto is very common at all restaurants in most of Italy and is a fixed seating charge, usually 1.50 – 3.00 euros per person.

 A service charge (“servizio”) which is a percentage (10%- 12%- 15%- 20%??? applied to the total bill).

Tickets are also reasonable & affordable, around 60- 100 Euro per person.

Go Naked (Barefooted)!

This is probably the best way to connect with Venice, take off your shoes and walk barefooted. Explore the hidden alley ways take water taxies when you are tired.  An early morning Jog on cold, damp floor will definitely charge you up with energy. Especially near the Basilica di San Marco Church.

Natural beauty is at its best in Venice, you can enjoy astonishment of pink- streaked skies right after the sunset. Skies are always clear blue during the day while night sky is always full of stars. If you really want to impress your partner, take them out and enjoy the sunset with a romantic dinner. Sure, you will have to use candles, but it will be much more interesting.

Take as many photos as you want, do something crazy, switch off your mobile and spend time with your loved one.

Sleep as little as possible, capture the moment and create everlasting memories with your loved ones. Please don’t waste your time being lazy or lying in the bed. Take 5/6 cups of espresso if you want, but get out of the bed.

There are many Art classes available, which specializes in teaching Drawing, Italian cooking & other arts in general. These classes are the best way to kill some of the extra time and learn useful skills. These are often one or two days long. Prefer joining one or two.  Learn Basic Italian from a native, make some new friends.
