What you'll do

Venice is a city best explored on foot and from the water. Where else in the world can you roam vibrant streets, stopping in local campi (or piazzas) to see signs of normal daily life and then on towards your next chosen aperitivo spot in full sunshine, overlooking gondolas gliding past under the 400 or so bridges that connect this city that so absorbs all who get to encounter her beauty first-hand. Must-see Venice is all about packing in the main sights of this mesmerizing city,  along with a local insight into what everyday looks like for the locals living within this floating postcard-city.

Where you'll go

Walk through Riva Degli Schiavoni to reach the world-renowned Piazza San Marco and on to see the Bridge of Sighs. Order your first Italian coffee at a standing bar and take in views of the beautiful area of Punta della Salute and some of Venice’s most picturesque palazzos. Fondamenta della Misericordia offers insight into everyday scenes for the Veneziani with its local cafes and small traditional shops. Visiting the beautiful Arsenale is yet another highlight; the center of ancient Venetian power, where war and trade ships were built. If your tired feet need a rest, perhaps the final order for the day is a stop at Campo Santa Margherita - the ultimate way to close in the day, renowned for its lively environment and the last rays of sun.
