Top Places to Visit & Tourist Attractions in Venice
The main public square in Venice and one of the most famous in the world, St. Mark’s Square is a must-see highlight for anyone visiting Venice. Surrounding the square is a number of magnificent buildings but the crown jewel of St. Mark’s is the beautiful Basilica di San Marco. The numerous domes and arches of this spectacular basilica are adorned with an incredible array of artistic, iconographic and religious works from some of the greatest Italian and European artist throughout the centuries. On our holidays including Venice, we’ll visit St. Mark’s Square and admire this awe-inspiring structure.
St Mark's Campanile is the bell tower located in the centre of St. Mark’s Square. One of the most recognizable symbols of the city, the tower has been an important part of life in Venice for centuries and its bells originally rang to signal the beginning and end of every work day. Our tours to Venice include a stop at this famous landmark and we’ll enjoy plenty of free time to climb the tower for panoramic views of the city below.
The Ca’ d’Oro is widely regarded as one of the best-preserved examples of a Venetian Gothic palace and is the perfect spot to imagine what life would have been like during the glory of the Venetian Republic. Today, the palace houses the Galleria Franchetti, an impressive collection of bronzes, tapestries and paintings from the 15th and 16th centuries, including many works by Titian. When visiting the Ca’ d’Oro, make sure to take in the stunning panoramic views from the balconies over the Grand Canal on the first and second floors.
Of the four bridges that cross the Grand Canal in Venice, the Ponte di Rialto is the oldest. This busy bridge connects the districts of San Polo and San Marco and is one of the top visitor attractions in the city. On our holidays to Venice, we’ll enjoy plenty of free time to marvel at the bridge from the banks of the Grand Canal or browse through the shops that line the inside of the structure, selling jewellery, linens, Murano glass and more.
Also known as the Doge’s Palace, the Palazzo Ducale was the residence and administrative seat for the ruler of the former Republic of Venice. This Venetian Gothic masterpiece overlooks St. Mark’s Square and the main artery of Venice, the Grand Canal. The palace is home to grand staircases, magnificent works of art, lush royal apartments and even a prison that once housed the famous adventurer Giacomo Casanova. On our holidays to Venice, we’ll have the opportunity to see the Doge’s Palace and hear about its history with insights from an expert guide.
