Getting Around Venice

Venice’s compact size makes it easy to get around on foot. Other options are the vaporetti (water buses) and water taxis. Water taxis are fairly expensive and provide a luxurious, private journey. They can be hired by phone or through the Consorzio Motoscarfi Venezia website. Water buses provide regular services around Venice. Save money on journeys by buying a Tourist Travel Card from ACTV. The cards offer unlimited travel on vaporetti and are valid for between one to seven days, depending on the type of card chosen.

Main Attractions

Basilica di San Marco on the Piazza San Marco is one of Venice’s most popular sights. The mosaics and spectacular altarpiece are worth the considerable queuing time. The Basilica also has a museum and Treasury attached to it. The Santa Maria dei Miracoli is a much smaller church built largely of marble, with a beautiful vaulted ceiling decorated with images of various prophets. The historic Palazzo Ducale has been preserved as a museum, and houses a large collection of painting by artists such as Tintoretto and Veronese. For something more up to date, visit the impressive Peggy Guggenheim Collection on the Grand Canal. This museum is a repository of early twentieth century artworks by artists including Brancusi, Picasso and Duchamp. Visit the island of Murano for a peek at the glassblowing factories that manufacture the island’s famed glass products.

Shopping, Dining and Nightlife

The area around the famed Rialto Bridge has a collection of markets selling vegetables, fish and spices. There are also a number of stalls selling glass knick knacks and other souvenirs. For more authentic glassware, visit the Murano Glass Shop near the Piazza San Marco to pick up skilfully made glass objects. The island of Burano is renowned for its delicate lace, and many shops there offer handmade lace pieces. Visit the Ristorante Corte Sconta for fresh seafood, artistically arranged on plates. The frittura mista all’Adriatico (fried Adriatic seafood) is a great way to sample the region’s offerings. Grab a gelato at the Gelateria San Stae to cool off on a hot day. Enjoy a delicious drink at Harry’s Bar, the birthplace of the bellini.
