8 unforgettable things to see and do in beautiful Venice, Italy

We may not be full-time travellers or digital nomads living the adventurous life that could put Crocodile Dundee and Indiana Jones to shame.

And we may not start our mornings with a fresh coconut in our hands on a remote island whose name we can’t even pronounce, but every far-flung destination or staycation we choose has a much broader purpose to it.

In addition to sightseeing, we make sure that every train ride we take and every new country we visit adds value and meaning to our lives, in a process making us much better human beings. We make sure that travel breaks down the barriers and satisfies our curiosity, teaches about arising global crises and emphasises personal growth.

My reason for returning to Venice was fueled by a purpose too.  I desired to feast my eyes on its architectural marvels, go on a photography adventure as well as deepen my knowledge of the region by engaging in various activities because exploring the sights and sounds that form the fabric of each city is as important as immersing into its art and architecture scene.

If there’s the one thing I’ve learned by going back to the floating city again – one of the perks of revisiting a place you’ve already been to once gives you an opportunity to see and experience all the things you missed the first time and have a chance to repeat the old experiences with a much better appreciation.

8 unforgettable things to see and do in beautiful Venice, Italy

Venice, a City of Masks, City of Canals and City of Bridges, never quite seems real, but rather an ornate film set suspended on the water. It’s a birthplace of Antonio Vivaldi and Marco Polo and is best known for its artistic movements, especially the Renaissance period.

If you are planning to visit Venice, believe me, you are guaranteed to be endlessly fascinated by your surroundings and have yourself a memorable trip. Either you devote a full day, or a long weekend to explore it, Venice will leave you with many experiences.

In this blog article, we will share some of the best and notable places worth exploring and visiting.

 

#1. Marvell at St.Mark’s Square

You can easily spend a full day exploring everything within St. Marks’ Square and not see everything, and you can easily devote a separate blog post to Venices most popular square with a mighty bell tower in one of its corners.

St. Mark’s Square is the very heart of Venice, surrounded on three sides with imposing buildings adorned with delicate arches and beautiful columns; a magnet that pulls in everyone setting foot in the city.

As Venices only public square, all the other open spaces are called calli and campielli, it holds some of the prime attractions such as Venices most important church St Mark’s Basilica, Museo Correr and Museo del Risorgimento, the Doge’s Palace, Campanile and Torre dell’Orologio (Clock Tower) just to name a few.

Our Crossings tip* If Saint Mark’s Square gets very busy, head to Canareggio for crowd-free Venice.

#2. Go on a Gondola Ride

Going for a ride along the beautiful Grand Canal or enjoying lesser-known waterways and corners around Saint Mark’s Square and feeling the gentle movement of the gondola that’s skilfully guided by the master gondolier has to be one of the most iconic and sought out experiences in Venice.

Don’t mind people saying it’s cheesy, expensive and touristy, yes, it is! But it is also sightseeing in a very unique way – where else you can pass by the famous theatre  La Fenice, marvel at the Rialto Bridge, feast your eyes on Casanova’s house and enjoy some peace and quiet in the narrow back canals?

You can go for a shared ride with other people visiting Venice or can splash out and have a memorable experience by having the boat all to yourself. Either way, you can walk around and check the prices at the different gondola stations but be prepared to pay around 80 EUR for 25 – 30 minutes and 120 EUR for 45 minutes for a private gondola ride.

#3. Embark on a photography adventure

Venice is a city of incredible architecture. A place where little romantic bridges join colourful canals and a place where you don’t need to wander far to find cool angles and compositions to capture.

In Venice, you’ll find a staggering amount of interesting objects and things to point your camera towards – the textures of stone and brick, laundry hanging out to dry, imposing churches, the gondolas along the promenade, ahhh…. the list goes on!

Don’t hesitate to explore and photograph the side streets stemming out from main touristy areas – they often lead to quite an undiscovered corners and beautiful bridges.

Although Venice is a very photogenic city to photograph, there are also a few challenges that come with it. One of the first things we noticed it was hard to capture Venice’s top sights and find a place to set up a tripod and carry equipment through the city due to a sheer amount of people.

Make sure you get up super early and make it your mission – aside from photographing top sights- to also seek out places and things that spark your artistic side like capturing old doors leading right into canals, the Gothic decorations, the street lamps or beautiful reflections.

Truman Capote once said, “Venice is like eating an entire box of chocolate liqueurs in one go.”

 

#4. Sample food and vine

Traveling to Venice and immersing yourself into its food and wine scene by sampling the local delicatessen is one of the best experiences ever because, in Italy, food is everything.

In Venice, you can be on a mission to scout trough its markets and find the best eateries and the best bites while getting lost in the back canals, all by yourself or you can sign up for one of the organized food tours and let the guide show you around.

Either way, one of the things to look out for is the wine bars called bacari – some of them small, cute and authentic corner spots – where people would stop first thing in the morning to eat and drink. All’arco, located at Sestiere San Polo 436, Ai Promessi Sposi that can be found at Calle de l’Oca, 4367 and La Cantina, situated at Campo San Felice, 3689 are noted to be some of the best in Venice.

While many people associate Venice with pizza and pasta, the actual foods Venetians ate were potatoes, rice, corn and dried and salted cod – baccalà. There are many notable dishes, truly flavourful and one of a kind,  such as Risotto al nero di seppia – a seafood-based risotto,  sarde in saor a lovely dish, rather strong in taste,  that consists of sardines, onion and balsamic vinegar or creamed dried cod known as Baccala mantecato worth trying.

#5. Learn the story behind the Bridge of Sighs

The Bridge of Sighs,  located next to the Doge’s Palace in Venice,  also known as the Ponte dei Sospiri in Italian is a truly remarkable bridge made of white limestone that holds the attention

While most of the visitors view the bridge built in baroque style by Antonio Contin in 1614 from outside, there’s also an option to walk the narrow enclosed corridors of the footbridge and take a peek through the rectangular window and see Venice as prisoners once saw it.

Access to Venices most famous bridge is only available with The Secret Itineraries Tour you can book through the Doge’s Palace website.

#6. See the city from one of its viewpoints 

To see Venice from a different angle and to admire the city as a whole, climb to one of the viewpoints including San Giorgio Maggiore Campanile, Scala Contarini del Bovolo, or our personal favourite Fondaco dei Tedeschi.

Located next to the Rialto Bridge, the Fondaco dei Tedeschi was once used as a trading post for German merchants only to be reopened in 2016 as a luxurious shopping centre.

The visit to the terrace, open from 9:45AM to 7:15PM, is free of charge but you have to book your place in advance on the shopping centre website and arrive at a certain time.

#7. Explore the beauty of the Grand Canal

Curving through the middle of Venice, the Grand Canal is the city’s main waterway and main attraction that’s always buzzing with traffic and is crossed by four beautiful bridges. Here you’ll see all types of boats from water buses to private boats and from gondolas to fishing boats transporting goods and people from one point to another one.

You can recognise Grand Canal from many Hollywood movies including Dans Browns Inferno, where Robert and Sienna upon arriving in Venice by train, jump into a private boat to make their way to Saint Mark’s Square.

To appreciate all the incredible buildings facing the Grand Canal and to ride the entire length of it, from San Marco to Porta Roma,  is to jump on a Venice’s public transport system known as Vaporetto.

Once you leave San Marco stop, be prepared to take in the views of many of its incredible attractions starting with  Baroque church of Santa Maria Della Salute whose enormous weight is supported by more than a million timbers driven into the floor of the lagoon.

#8. Visit Venice’s Museums

Venice, the City of Canals, has plenty of amazing museums – some of them small and simple, some of them over the top extravagant –  hosting several of Italy’s best art and innovation collections.

In a city crammed with history, either your desire is to discover more of its religious, artistic or cultural past, there are plenty of places you can add to your itinerary. Just take a pick – there’s a Museum of Lace and Museum of Glass, Jewish Museum of Venice and Fondazione Querini Stampalia. There’s also:

  • Leonardo da Vinci Museum | A very small yet very informative museum that showcases a bit of art, science and genius inventions all under one roof. One of the best things about the Leonardo da Vinci Museum, you get the chance to pull levers, wind cranks and open and close things in order to see how they actually work.
  • Dodge’s Palace | Built in traditional Venetian Gothic Style architecture, Dodge’s Palace is an impressive masterpiece and perhaps one of the most recognised places in Venice, displaying various paintings and statues.
  • Palazzo Ca’ Pesaro | Overlooking beautiful Grand Canal, Palazzo Ca’ Pesaro, is where you’ll find the International Museum of Modern art and the Oriental Art Museum with exhibits from Japan, China, and Indonesia.

When to visit Venice

When it comes to visiting Venice, some times of the year are much better than others. If you are planning a trip and don’t know when to go, keep in mind the acqua alta (high water), weather and festivals.

Few of the things to consider – the typical high water season usually occurs from October through January, during the summer month it’s a real challenge to find accommodation and Venice can be unbearable hot and late February or early March is when the world-famous Carnevale attracts tons of tourists.

  • Spring | During the springtime, considered to be a pre-season period, the city can be already swarmed by tourists due to several events and festivals. With cold of the winter gone and with its semi-warm weather, Venice is a joy to explore from March to May, and if you choose to visit in early spring, you can expect good room rates.
  • Summer | June, July, and August – the high season month is extremely busy and being surrounded by swarms of humans on top of scorching temperatures, can easily taint your experience. In summer, you have to be prepared for long waits to enter museums and attractions as well as premium accommodation prices.
  • Autumn | After the rush of summer holidays has subsided, Venice will continue to offer a wealth of opportunities with fun events and unique festivals. I visited at the end of September and still had to endure the tourist crowds that seem to dilute only by late October and November. Fall months offer less expensive accommodation and fewer crowds, but it also arrives with a risk of flooding.
  • Winter |Don’t want to deal with summer heat and crowds? Low season is great for art lovers, photographers, and history savvy explorers. Some shops may be closed, the weather can be cold and rainy – even harsh at times-, there’s a very likely possibility of flooding, but there are fewer tourists and easier to find accommodation.

  1. Excellent post and photos. We were there in spring 1984 on a tour. This was a good start, but we learned from that experience to never book the cheap tour. We stayed outside the city and did not get enough time in the heart. We did manage to explore the Piazza, the cathedral and the palace as well as take a gondola ride. It is definitely worth visiting again. Thanks for the info and memories. Have a great Monday. Allan

    1. Thanks so much, Allan! Venice is unlike any other place in Europe, and it may just be the most romantic city in the world. It’s also one of the world’s great engineering feats as the whole city is built on more than 100 islands in a marshy lagoon. Even with two separate visits, I didn’t manage to see everything I wanted so I can easily use it as an excuse to go back one day. Thanks for reading and have a good day. Aiva

Wow! your description and your suggestions are perfect! Cannot wait to take a trip to Venice which I have not seen for ages! The words of the introduction are very meaningful as travelling should also have a purpose other than tourism and getting to know other places. Travelling to become better human beings is a lovely thought! Great post and I love it!

      Few cities offer such a wealth of beauty, charm and history as Venice. There are still many places within the city I wish to see and one such a place is Doge’s Palace. It is said that the wow-factor of the Doge’s Palace’s majestic marble exterior is only exceeded by the treasures held within – history buffs and aficionados of classical art will never want to leave. Yet one of the reasons to go back one day. That is if the city is still above the water. Have a good day. It’s sunny and warm in Ireland today, and I had a chance to see the first snowdrops!

      Spring is definitely on its way. Aiva

    1. Venice is fantastic indeed yet the city suffers from massive overcrowding, devastating floods, and pollution and other environmental damage, much of which comes from cruise ships that bark in regularly. I think that everyone needs to see what mass-market tourism does to certain places, Venice including, so we can make and demand changes.

      But don’t let this from staying away from Venice, I visited last September, and despite the crowds, I was in love with everything I had a chance to see.

      And because the land is boggy, the buildings don’t have proper foundations and are gradually subsiding into the waters of the lagoon – you have to see it before it’s gone!

  9. Good post to know! Maybe back in 2008, I traveled here with my family around Thanksgiving. I absolutely fell in love with it and now when I look at photos/ movies/ TV shows/ video games of this city, I still have a longing to go visit it again. Yet, besides the money factor, I’m afraid those romantic feelings I’ve had for it in the past would ruin my current expectations of it – if that makes sense. Anyway, I’ll always cherish those memories.

    1. Thanks so much, Susanna.

      Nelson Mandela said famously, “There is nothing like returning to a place that remains unchanged to see the ways that you yourself have changed.”

      On our first trip, which was a decade ago, we visited the famous tourist attractions and loved every minute of it. I didn’t know what to expect on my most recent visit, because ten years is a long time and I had various thoughts running through my head such as ”What if Venice isn’t as good/beautiful/fun to explore as I remember?”.

      I once read that when the flashbacks of old memories are overlayed with the new memories being formed, they create a modified neural network or “engram” that incorporates the old with the new. Luckily, in the moments before your brain has integrated the new stimuli with the former engram, there is a small window of time in which you can take inventory and evaluate how much you’ve changed since the last time you were there. I think it’s amazing how the brain works and encodes memories.

      Nevertheless, I had a memorable time exploring Venice once again. Aiva

The first time I went, with them, I was 14 and utterly captivated. Since then I’ve been back three time’s and each time I fall more in love with it, the people, the food and wine, the atmosphere and the sights.
