    As good as you imagined it to be. As mad and busy and nonsensical as you thought it would be. But magical and brilliant!! Love it

    Very beautiful inside, especially because of the mosaics which cover the entire inside of the basilica. Definitely don't miss the museum upstairs as you get wonderful views of the piazza.

    I'm in two minds about whether pre-booking your visit is the best way to go. When we tried to book, it was all full so we had to stand in the queue in order to get in. We arrived at about 9:20 and made it inside at 10ish. Majority of the queue was in the shade whereas the pre-booked tickets line was in the sun and there was still a queue to get in. Cost of pre-booking for just the basilica is 6€ each whereas it is only 3€ per person on the day. By the time we got out, about 11ish, the queue was considerably shorter so might be worth going later in the day.

    Absolutely amazing, a must for everyone to see, incredible architecture. The little side streets lead you to amazing little cafe's and restaurants and shops.

    Well worth a trip to the top for some lovely views over Venice. There is a lift up and down so getting to the top is easy. I would recommend booking in advance as this allows you to skip any queue. The ticket gives you a half hour slot to visit so you are not tied to a specific time. We booked our ticket for a short while after our tour of the palace and basilica. You are able to spend as long as you want at the top so there is no rush.

    One of the most picturesque neighborhoods in the city. Come here to get lost wandering the streets, and then you emerge at a canal. Lots of places to eat and drink. But you will encounter big crowds as everyone wants to come to Venice.

    An important religious building in this part of the city. You can get a very good look at it from the canal. One of many important sites we saw on our day exploring.

    There is great art here and the Disney visitors across the canal miss this.

    Learn the whole history of Venetian painting at L'Accademia!!!

    Then visit Scuola di San Rocco (Tintoretto frescoes), Ca Rezzonico (Tiepolo), Santa Marie della Salute (Marriage at Cana by Tintoretto, Saint Mark Enthroned by Titian)

    The churches of Venice are loaded with Renaissance masterpieces

    Finish with Guggenheim Modern Art

    Start EARLY. Take your time. Try to stay overnight.

    The extremely famous bridge crossing the Canal. A must-do on your tour of the city because of the views from on top, as well as the lovely bridge design. You will find huge crowds of tourists around.

    You will find this lovely old building right on the main Piazza. It displays a beautifully-designed old clock and the tower is above most of the buildings on the Piazza. Be prepared for crowds of tourists.

    It's the big body of water that surround the islands that make up the city. When the tide is high, the lagoon can flood parts of the city. There are massive efforts underway to protect the city from sea rise. The lagoon's waters are not so clean and they are busy with lots of boat traffic.

    A quirky staircase tucked away in aback street, you would miss it if you didn't know it was there. A short climb to the top gives a view of the rooftops of Venice, There is also a small art gallery included in the entry price.

    In today's world, a reminder that Jews were discriminated against, humiliated, and prohibited from enjoying the same rights and sense of security those around them took for granted. We went to the office of the Ghetto di Venezia and took the self-guided walking tour, which included visits to two synagogues in the Ghetto area and explanations of the history of the Ghetto.
    It was not surprising that similar to other parts of Europe, at times of bad economies, the Jews were "allowed" into the city limits, but as long as they lock themselves in a small part of the city, separated by two bridges from the rest of the population and paid the salaries of the Ghetto's guards.
    It is a reminder and somewhat of an explanation for the past and the present.
    You could be passing by, take a minute to learn. highly recommended.

    I love markers, real markets where locals shop, where one buys fruit and vegetables in season and get the vibe of the place. Queuing often leads to chats with locals even if only by sign language where common language isn’t available. The Rialto market is a particular favourite with wonderful fish and seafood and vegetable stalls selling an immense range of fruit and vegetables. Vendors were without exception friendly and welcoming and helpful in selecting produce.
