The Grand Canal

Forming a large S shape through the city of Venice, Canal Grande is an ancient waterway from the Saint Mark Basin on one end to a lagoon near the Santa Lucia rail. The ancient waterway collaborates with buildings mostly built from the thirteenth to the eighteenth century. The city’s traffic roam around the canal, may it be famous gondolas, private boats or water buses (vaporetti).

Doge’s Palace

A cynosure in Venetian Gothic style adds up a bit of local flavor. Insight garnished perfectly, the historical, geographical, and sculptural scenes is beyond one’s farthest vision.  The palace was the residence of the Doge of Venice, the supreme authority of the former Republic of Venice. Walking through the dungeons serves to delight with panoply of Venetian architecture, Istirian Stone and Brick Paving. The oldest part of the palace is made of 14th century sculptures and gives you an overview of what authentic furnishing and designing looks like. Doge’s palace is itself an integration of fragmented beauty with so much to offer than what meets the eye. Stand in front of historical Doge’s palace where the famous lover and writer of Venice, was held in attic prison before he somehow managed to escape.

Teatro La Fenice

Stop your ride here. One of the most renowned in the history of Operas, Teatro La Fenice is an opera house in Venice. What one more could ask for when the beats of divine music murmur in your ears?  What is more sensational than seeing talented artists perform? It is a treat to visit this site of many famous operatic premieres. Not to commit an awful gaffe, a tourist must visit Teatro La Fenice just to settle the nerves down.

Rialto Bridge

Wandering through the breezy atmosphere and local piazzas, here comes the highlight of the limitless beauty Venice possess. Despite being one of the costly things to do in Venice, Rialto celebrates the sunlight on its marble beauty, dances through the rainbow like reflection under water, and sings along with rhythm of positive vibes. Rialto is the oldest of the four bridges combining with The Canal Grand.

St Mark’s Basilica

The religious sites of Venice would help to calm down your cerebral hemispheres. The mind is a brood and is looking for peace and tranquility.

St Mark’s is the cathedral church of the Roman Catholic, based in northern Italy. Solitude is one thing but the Italo-Byzantine architecture takes you on a different level. Connected with the Doge’s palace, it lies at the eastern end of the Piazza San Marco. For its imperfect design and gold ground mosaics, it allocates the Venetian wealth and power from the 11th century.

Of course, the vast and bewitching nature of Venice is so much more than this. The history of Venice is an underlying story demanding a glimpse of you. One can only try to describe their experience about the place, but only a true beauteous visit would conceal the ineffably pure and divine beauty.  The beginnings would be ecstatic but the ending would be memorable. Such is the impact of Venice, leaves everyone with thoughts of peace, love and care. Let yourself limn into the bright side of the world. Tell people about your visit to the heart of Italy, of how you just wanted to stay there, and how it became a part of your once in a lifetime experience.
