City of love, art and Cinema
Venice is like a postcard: get lost in its streets (calli) and look for suggestive views, which you will find around any corner
There are two ways to visit Venice: the traditional and a more particular one. The first is the one where you can follow the routes for tourists, suggested by the Tour Operators or organized trips; the second one aims to discover the genuine part of the city, its intimates and particular places that make Venice one of the favourite tourist destinations.
So, we suggest you an alternative route, starting in San Marco square, the most famous picture of the city, crowded with pigeons waiting for crumbs.
The tour continues with the Ducal Palace, guardian of history and main character of lots of important events of the past. It endured lot of transformations due to a series of accidents, but it represents a steady presence in the history of the city.
If you’d like to admire Venice from a different point of view, we suggest you a tour of the Grand Canal that starts from the Santa Lucia’s railway station to San Marco’s square. You will see all the certainly suggestive palaces that face the Canal. At the end of the ferry-tour, the next stop has to be the visit of the Gallerie dell’Accademia, which hosts a rich collection of venetians paintings, from the byzantine and gothic Thirteenth century to the Renaissance artists. Bellini, Giorgione, Veronese, Tintoretto, Tiziano, Tiepolo are just some of the exposed artists, whose works marked and enriched indelibly our culture with unique and unforgettable works.
At the end of the visit at the Gallerie dell’Accademia, it will probably be evening and maybe you become a little bit hungry. No problem, Venice is full of bars and little taverns called “bacari”, where you can taste the “cicchetti”, typical venetian appetizers to be consumed together with an “ombra de vin” (glass of wine).
