Venice. Home to Piazza San Marco, the world’s most beautiful drawing room, the Grand Canal, the Venice Film Festival, and the world’s number one (some say two) Carnevale. Could you visit Italy without stopping by Venezia? Sure you could. But you’ll really enjoy this wonderful city through Italian Hotel Guide.
Venice’s city center is quite compact. Must I tell you not to bring your car? While there are other forms of transportation you really should take a gondola ride, perhaps at sunset. Venice is divided into six districts; the locals call them sestiere. To the east is Castello, Venice’s largest and least “touristy” district. Do you need another reason to visit it? To its west is San Marco; it’s quite posh. Here’s where you’ll find the Duke’s Palace, without the Duke. Cross the Grand Canal for the elegant Dorsoduro sestiere, home to some great museums. Head north to the small but lively Santa Croce and San Polo districts. San Polo is connected to San Marco by the Ponte di Rialto Bridge. Venice’s northernmost sestiere is Cannaregio, home to the Ca' d’Oro (golden house) and on a more sombre note, the world’s first ghetto. This is one place in Italy where you can see many synagogues as well as churches.
No matter what you want to do, see, eat, and drink in Venice you’ll need a place to stay. Our web site http://www.travelitalytravel.com offers an extensive list of tourist hotels (including the occasional bed and breakfast) and boutique hotels, district by district.
