Venice

 

Venice, located in northeastern Italy, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the most distinctive and scenic destinations in the world. It is also one of the most popular, so expect to see many fellow-travelers, especially in the summer.

Venice is situated on a lagoon comprising 118 islands, with a network of canals and bridges connecting them. The districts with the main monuments and sights are called “Sestieri” and include Cannaregio, Castello, Dorsoduro, San Polo, Santa Croce and San Marco.

Various areas can be visited by foot, public water taxi, or romantic (but expensive) gondola.

While the core area holds the most famous monuments from Venice’s Renaissance peak, many of Venice’s less-visited areas also hold considerable appeal, with far fewer tourists.

Overall Atmosphere: Combination
Combination Atmosphere destinations combine elements of both cultural and natural destinations, where this combination is itself essential to the travel experience. Common examples are Archaeological Sites (where culture is usually experienced outdoors), Scenic Local Markets (where indigenous cultures interact outdoors), Hotsprings and Vineyard Areas (where nature provides the raw materials but humans create the surroundings), and Unique Cultural Landscapes (where humans and nature interact in innovative ways, as in the elaborate rice terracing systems of Asia).

Combination Interests typically fall somewhere in the middle of the three types of primary interests in terms of
(a) how climate-dependent they are
(b) how accessible and physically demanding they are.
Featuring both cultural and natural attractions.

Historic Landmarks
Founded in the 5th century and spread over 118 small islands, Venice became a major maritime power in the 10th century. The whole city is an extraordinary architectural masterpiece in which even the smallest building contains works by some of the world's greatest artists such as Giorgione, Titian, Tintoretto, Veronese and others.

Venice initially started as temporary settlements on the sandy islands of Torcello, Jesolo and Malamocco, intended to escape barbarian raids. These temporary settlements gradually became permanent and the initial refuge of the land-dwelling peasants and fishermen became a maritime power. The result are churches, plazas, and other historic landmarks that are extraordinary in both quantity and quality.

Venice Lagoon and Canal System

Venice’s vast canal system runs through what is essentially an inland sea. It has been under threat both militarily and geographically from its beginning. The city itself rises amid a tiny archipelago at the very edge of the waves to one of the most extraordinary built-up areas of the Middle Ages.

From Torcello to the north to Chioggia to the south, almost every small island had its own settlement, town, fishing village and artisan village.
Boat Tours
The easiest way to visit Venice’s vast canal system is taking the public a Vaporetto (Water Bus). The ride down the Grand Canal right before sunset is especially.

Gondolier-for-hire business licenses are officially limited to just 430 to 455 rowers in Venice, making the market artificially scarce and inflating prices. Negotiating down often leads to shorter tours.

If you want to get away from crowds, there are scheduled boat services to the islands of Murano, Burano and Torcello. There are boat services to all these islands at scheduled times, including between the islands themselves.
