One of the most beautiful cities in the world, Venice is the perfect destination for lovers during all the seasons whether it was freezing or super hot as well. It was a bucket list item for me for a long time, and it will for sure exceed your expectations.
#1 Start with the Airplane view
Even before landing in Marco Polo’s airport, the view was stunning. You can admire the beautiful Venice like an aggregate of islands. I was also astonished by that only highway road that links one part of Venice to another.
#2 Walk all over the Grand Canal
Once you get out of Venice Santa Lucia’s station, you have those goosebumps when the view that offers itself to you will feel like a dream. You’re in front of the grand canal with the famous bridge that you used to see in the pictures. The Rialto bridge is a must-see as well.
#3 Explore the small tiny bridges
Without any doubt, you should walk around in Venice especially to explore those tiny bridges in the smallest streets. It’s up to you to find the perfect bridge in front of which you will take the typical touristic picture. First, I walked to one side and I reached an empty bridge where all the charming colorful buildings are behind you. Then, when I went to the other side of the Grand Canal, I reached some tiny bridges with beautiful views.
#4 Visit the Piazza San Marco
On top of the sight-seeings not to miss is the Piazza San Marco. The golden cathedral is so beautiful to see as well as the place itself. When you go on the other side to the right, you will reach the water where you will have an astonishing view with the boats. Furthermore, when you walk next to the Piazza, you can see beautiful small bridges as well.
#5 Experience the Water Bus
It is something to experience in Venice especially if you do not have a lot of time or you do not want to walk a lot. You can admire the glorious buildings and stop at several stations. You can take it for example from Santa Lucia to Piazza San Marco.
I only spent one day in Venice, so I did not have all the time to walk in the charming small streets and to check out many bridges. Regions such as Burano are on my list to come back again and spend more time in this city of love.
