Venice, Italy’s floating city

By June 15, 2009 No Comments

I just returned from Venice Italy, one of the most beautiful cities in the world.  Arriving in Venice by water taxi is amazing and scenic, the buildings are so delicately placed / suspended above water, it is a stunning city glistening on the water.  Venice’s major water way the Grand Canal runs through the entire city, lined with palaces, churches, medieval buildings and gondolas.  Venice is a walking city, with over 400 bridges, the Rialto Bridge is one of the most famous spanning the canal.  Visit Piazza San Marco, the Basilica, enjoy your favorite drink while listening to the orchestra.  Walk the bridge of sighs and the Rialto.  The best way to see and get a feel of the Grand Canal is by enjoying a Venetian Gondola ride.  Explore Burano, a charming picturesque fishing village, a great place to spend an afternoon, have lunch, shop, and take in this peaceful colorful island from Venice.  The average stay in Venice is three to four days, you will find the finest welcoming accomodations, a favorite is the Danieli, historical and luxurious.  Treat yourself to lunch or dinner at the Terrazza Danieli on the top floor offering exclusive views and delicious cuisine.  Venice is romantic and magic, sure to please and exceed your expectations, make it your city of a lifetime.
