What to do

With a city as filled with tourist attractions as Venice, it’s hard to know where to begin. You can spend hours wandering through its enchanting little streets and passageways, strolling beside its canals, and finding its secret corners, or you can get around the city on board of a traditional wood-carved gondola boat.

If you want to appreciate this city and the numerous tourist attractions it has, you can visit the very well-known St Mark’s Basilica in Piazza San Marco, the Rialto Bridge (the most famous bridge that cross the Grand Canal), the Doge’s Palace or the so-called Snail Staircase. Venice also has an incredible variety of art museums, ranging from Renaissance paintings hung below elaborately carved ceilings to masterpieces of modern art: the Museo Civico Correr is dedicated to Venice’s civic history; Ca’Rezzonico is the largest cache of 18th century and contains works by Tiepolo, Canaletto and Tintoretto; the Peggy Guggenheim Museum includes works from the most famous European and American artists of the first half of the 20th century (such as Picasso, Pollock, Dalì, Mondrian, Kandinsky, Magritte, De Chirico, Modigliani, Mirò); the greats of Venetian painting from the 14th to the 18th century are represented in Galleria dell’Accademia: Bellini, Tintoretto, Tiziano, Tiepolo, Canaletto together with Leonardo da Vinci and his world-renowned Vitruvian Man.

The Lido di Venezia is also a popular international luxury destination, attracting thousands of actors, critics, celebrities, and mainly people in the cinematic industry.
