As per my ex-husbands description:
“Venice is a city on a number of islands in a lagoon so there isn’t really anything “off the beaten track”.
Sights to see are St Mark’s Basilica, St Mark’s Bell Tower, the Rialto Bridge, the islands of Burano, Murano and Torcello famous for lace, blown glass and a thousand year old church. Also the Doge’s Palace and the Bridge of Sighs. Take a gondola ride round the canals and visit many, many churches full of Renaissance art. Wander round the streets and you will find plenty of shops selling masks, lace, glass and the usual fashionware.
There are many, many places to eat but most are Italian in style – it’s not like Paris where you can eat in Greek, Moroccan, Italian or French restaurants all over the city. The hotels offer the best meals to be honest. That was one of the reasons for staying at the Hotel Villa MaBaPa because it had a four-star restaurant where we ate the most sumptuous food"
Wander around! Venice is a great city to explore because of the narrow roads and tall buildings- there’s always something new around the corner! Be careful though- it’s easy to get lost. Have a great trip, and don’t fall in any canals!
