Awaiting Your Return From Shore
Venice is one of the world's most
romantic cities. Built over a sprawling archipelago, Venice encompasses 118
islands separated by more than 150 canals that are spanned by some 400
bridges. Exploring the passageways that open into flower bedecked piazzas is
one of life's greatest adventures.
Your adventure is assisted by the network of water buses (vaporetti) that
traverses the whole city and is utilized by residents and visitors alike.
One of the best sightseeing routes is along the Grand Canal, passing under
the Rialto Bridge and past many splendid palaces. At St. Mark’s Square, one
gains access to some of Venice’s most famed attractions, the St. Mark’s
Basilica and the Doge’s Palace. From the Piazza San Marco, a maze of narrow
streets leads off, lined with shops, cafés and restaurants. One popular
pastime is sitting at an outdoor café fronting the square, sipping a drink
and people-watching .
Glorious Venice is faced with the threat of gradual sinking, and this has
prompted numerous preservation efforts. In the meantime, visit this
magnificent and romantic city. Treat yourself to a gondola ride, see the
immense art treasures in museums, churches and palaces, have a sumptuous
meal, and shop to your heart’s content.
