Where you'll go

You’re not left wanting for sights and mantle-piece worthy moments in this city which at times feels like its beauty is put on solely for your enjoyment. You could begin by following your guide through Rio Marin, a popular Venetian neighborhood in the center of the city that leads you to a hidden gem of note, Basilica dei Frari. From there perhaps you’d like some insight into the local market scene as you head past locals selling their wares, today’s catch and fresh goods and on towards world-renowned Rialto bridge. The ideal orientation of this effortlessly stylish city wouldn’t be complete without heading to Piazza San Marco and its famed basilica before finishing at Campo Santa Margherita - where a lively scene, and a spritz, await you.
