The Laguna city will charm you and leave you breathless as you've always pictured it.
It'a city to discover, where you can find the gondolas and the Grand Canal you have always dreamed of.
The best way to reach Venice is by train from Desenzano and it takes only 1.5 hours! Otherwise you will have a parking problem, in Venice you can not enter by car!
You can leave the car in Parking Tronchetto which is the cheapest and it starts from 30 euro per day.
Crossing the majestic Calatrava bridge and after going through the New Strada you get to the Rialto Bridge in 15 minutes. Rialto was the first settlement of Venice and now it is the downtown city. It is worth stopping in this part of Venice to see the quaint shops, fishmongers and then move on to the Jewish ghetto.
High buildings up to eight storeys characterized the district of the Jews, the district where they couldn't go out.
If you are looking for Bacari, Ombrette, Cicchetti and Spritz we recommend Corte dell'Orso near Rialto.
Corte dell'Orso is not a tourist restaurant. An inn that fascinates with high quality products, great selection of wines and many variants of cicchetti.
Following the yellow signs you will arrive in Piazza San Marco to visit the Basilica. Up to '800, the Basilica was the private church of the Doge, with the fall of the Venetian Republic it became the official one.
The Basilica of San Marco was builted with recycled materials stolen from Constantinople. You might notice that all the columns and capitals are different.
The mosaics are also made in glass and not the standard ceramic.
Each piece of the mosaic is made of transparent plates with a gold leaf sealed, and the interior of the church is all gold and glass.
Palazzo Ducale takes its time to be visited (about 2-3 hours), but you need to walk on the Bridge of Sighs.
This bridge was the last thing that the prisoners saw before being executed, has become the symbol of farewell to life. Legend has it that the only one who got out of prison was Casanova, the famous writer and poet steals hearts.
March 22nd street is where the designer shops are from Gucci, Prada and Valentino.
You will find an excellent view on the Church of Health (Chiesa della Salute) for your memorable pictures, a step away from Peggy Guggenheim Museum. It is among the last churches built in the '700, and was built in thanks to the Virgin for having done finish the plague.
In Campo Santa Margherita you will find the night life and try the famous spritz and little Venetian sandwiches.
The experience of the gondola is a MUST and a ride can cost 80 euro during the day and from 120 Euros per hour in the evening. There are several docks and the prices change according to the color of the gondola and the prices are valid up to 6 people.
Ponte Storto Restaurant is the perfect place for a romantic dinner, a delicate and particularly kitchen. The cream of pumpkin and rosemary with crispy shrimps is just delicious. If you love fresh fish, The graspodeua Restaurant is your place.
Enjoy your visit!
