About Venice

Venice is a uniquely beautiful canal city. Located in northeastern Italy, the whole city lies on the water. Water is Venice's soul. The beautiful structures of the city are all reflected in the water, as though all of Venice is afloat and drifting calmly. The Grand Canal is the “road” that passes through the whole city of Venice. Take a gondola and experience the water city's unique style. Don’t forget to try Venice's unique Spaghetti al Nero di Seppia (pasta with squid ink) and buy an exquisite hand-made mask before you go. Venice's wonders are not limited to the city’s center. On the azure waters of the Venetian Lagoon, there are many wonderful outlying islands that have to be seen, such as Burano, Murano and the Lido di Venezia.

Bridge of Sighs
4.5/5
820 Reviews
Bridge
Today, custom holds that lovers should kiss under the bridge in order to seal their fate as soul mates. Oddly, the bridge got its name from the sullen prisoners' exasperations as they were ferried across the bridge, from the prison to the courts. Despite its somber purpose, the bridge actually looks very romantic from the outside-- perfect for a great photo.
Doge's Palace
4.5/5
293 Reviews
Historical Architecture
The Government House is the residence of the Governor of the Republic of Venice, the home of the office and the court. It was the central institution of Venetian politics at the time. On the entire wall to the east of the second floor of the Grand Senate’s parliament hall is the “Paradise” painted by Tintoretto. Inside the gorgeous Governor's Mansion, there is a gothic cloister and an expensive golden ladder. The rooms on the second and third floors are decorated with Venetian paintings, the ceiling murals of the four foyer, the murals of the living room and the large conference halls lined with portraits of the Governors of the past.

Trip Moments

Winnie   
In the colorful island of Venice, feel the colorful in the fairy tale color island in the northeast of Venice, called Burano in Italian. This island is called the fairy island of Venice, and the houses on the island have been painted in vivid colors. Color Island stipulates that the residents of the island must brush the house once a year, and the island is therefore more famous: the colored island. Color Island The color of each adjacent house is different, and the water lane is beautiful. The most attractive today is the small houses on both sides of the street and the canal. This is a small world where colors are pieced together! Some people say that the buildings here are colored in order to allow fishermen to see their homes in the distance from the sea. I will meet this red coffee cafe when I arrive at the pier! Ice cream is a signboard. h is that there are too many tourists here. The residents on the island have been very calmly accepted. The dog and the dog should be cleaned and cleaned. When you walk on the island for a while, you will find most of the houses, and a pot of flowers or decorations will be placed on the windowsill. Each has its own unique ideas. The color imprint on the island is not all professional artists, but the masterpieces of the people, and even the house is so artistic. This is a very famous place for the production of lace, as well as a variety of handicrafts, paintings and clay houses, all very cute. The masks sold on the colorful islands are gorgeous, and the price of clay-colored houses is about 20 euros. The island is not big, come to this island is to indulge that romance. There is a world in the storybook that can play the role of a prince and a princess to satisfy his childhood.
