What travelers are saying
- Grand Canal is a central point of Venice and is beautiful with boats scattered around and restaurants and bars on either side. We took a gondola ride down grand canal and through venice which was exciting.
It was lovely to sit by the Canal in one of the bars to sip a spritz or just to walk along the canal and enjoy the breeze.Written September 12, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Travelling to one of the well-known islands of Murano, Burano, or Torcello you go through the Venice lagoon. Its clean and offers a stunning view of all the city gates, boats, airport, and wastewater plant.Written September 30, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Just a short trip across the Canale delle Fondamente Nuove from the Fondamente Nuove by vapporetto 4/1 or4/2, the cemetery island. - Isola di San Michele, is a peaceful, interesting place away from the crowds. Maps are apparently available to help you locate the resting places of well known people, although we couldn’t find anywhere to get one.There are, however, various signs indicating the numbers and location of particular graves. We particularly wanted to see the grave of Diaghilev decorated with a pile of pink ballet shoes left by ballet fans, as well as the Stravinsky graves, which we found easily near the back wall of the cemetery. Unfortunately the church was locked when we visited. Interesting just to wander around the different areas- war graves, Nuns graves and a children’s area. Nowhere to buy food or drink - there might have been a vending machine, but I’m not sure. Certainly worth visiting if you have already seen all the other sights.Written October 6, 2020This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Slavyanskaya embankment is called because once Dalmatian (Slavic) sailors moored ships here. that was later. And in the 9th century, Slavic slaves were brought here, who were then resold as soldiers to Saracens or eunuchs in harems. Now there are huge crowds of tourists and impeccably beautiful views.Written January 10, 2023
- For art lovers this is a must, the beauty of Venice the backdrop and contemporary art displays everywhere, it is fabulous. The gardens are very pretty and cool, with the wind from the lagoo. When you get tired of walking around, you can have a perfectly decent lunch and a drink looking out to sea. There is so much to see at the Biennale that you really need several days, but if you are not so keen, just pick a few pavilions to enjoy and then look around Venice.Written May 26, 2022
- Small island donated to order of monks now with 5 friars that care for the church and island. Beautiful small church, clusters and gardens. If you book is possible to stay as a guest of the monks for meditation and prayer.
Interesting stop for a short trip if moving around the Venice lagoon.Written May 2, 2018
- After the shock of Treporti being a carpark and nothing else, our vaporetto trip to Sant'Erasmo was even more of a joy as others have described.
We got off at top and followed the jasmine scented and purple artichoke lined road. We turned off at the church and continued on the east side heading south then took a path inland along a waterway.
It was all magnificently pleasant
And no-one else around other than some locals puttering along on motorbikes or two-stroke minivans or pushbike. Quite a bit of industry in gardens and fields.
Such a truly authentic place.Written June 8, 2022
- Remembrance parks like this one in Venice were established in Italy since the early 1920s. They served to instill a sense of pride in being Italian by remembering the sacrifice of the soldiers who died during WOI. Each tree was to symbolize a fallen soldier. The trees were often in care of children. After the period of fascism these parks were often neglected or disappeared altogether. However, the one in Venice survived the times. Its south side borders the San Marco basin. It is a lovely quiet green zone with pine trees and grassy spaces.Written November 2, 2021
- It is a simple park, but in Venice I really appreciated it as the city is crowded. Here you can sit in silence ( kind of) and without pressure.Written February 16, 2023
- The European Cultural Center hosts a different once-every-two-years contemporary art exhibit and this one will run from April 23 to November 27, 2022. This is the 6th biennial presentation and it is titled: "Personal Structures - Reflections." The artists (of which there were 200 who submitted requests) come from all around the world.
The meaning of "reflection" considers both the image and the thought behind the image; therefore it is both mental and visible. The goal for the artists was two-fold: the art should reflect awareness for what is to come an well as mirror the current environment. This is a pretty vague parameter (IMHO) but then, I am not an artist.
"Contemporary" is the operative word' and these figures really border the abstract. The garden that hosts this exhibit is a delightful place to come and sit on a bench and enjoy the day.Written October 11, 2022
- In a city with very few green spaces all should be appreciated. This is a nice park, surprisingly quiet and well maintained. If you need a corner for time out this is a good spot.Written February 16, 2019
- Fascinating tour of the site where goods were quarantined during two plagues. Warehouse with original company logos to identify locations and track duration if quarantines. Newly uncovered ruins from Bronze Age. Avavela.com tour company was excellent and reasonably priced.Written September 14, 2014
- An amazing tour of this palace. The Countess was so warm and friendly. She was very down to earth and a humble lady. I highly recommend this tour.Written January 8, 2020
- The store is quite pretty and full of history specially with the acqua di Melissa and the properties of this product from 1700. They also have other natural based products.Written March 6, 2020
- Located adjacent to Campo San Geremia, this large park provides a nice respite from the crowds along the main drag. There are a couple of entrances but once inside, there are benches in which to rest and specific areas for dogs to play and even a large playground for children.Written May 26, 2023
