As I was travelling around Europe, I made 100% sure that I made a stop at the world-famous city of Venice, Italy. Taking a trip down memory lane, it was surreal to finally actually see the city that I’ve always seen as the setting of movies and TV shows ever since I was a kid. What makes it even more amazing is that the whole city is actually listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Unfortunately for this trip, I only had 1 full day to explore the city. At first I was a bit sad that I only had one day to go around, but in reality, if you plan your trip well and know which places to go in Venice, it’s actually very doable! In this blog post, I’ll be sharing with you the places in Venice that’s worth visiting plus a few more travel tips just in case you’re dreaming of going to Cheap Ray Ban Sunglasses this wonderful city very soon!

Venice is actually an isolated island just off the main coast of Italy. The most fashionable way to get to the center of Venice is actually via a water boat shuttle. Upon touching down at Venice’s Marco Polo Airport, you can take a public bus or a taxi to Piazzale Roma, from there you would have to either post board a public water boat shuttle or a private water taxi to get to Piazza San Marco or also called Saint Mark’s Square.
It’s a 20-30 minute boat ride and as you approach the city, you’ll be met by amazing views filled with colourful small houses and of course, the canals of this enchanting city.
Once you dock, the you’ll already get a picturesque view of the coastline or the docks of Venice. As you walk along the coast you’ll see the many different canals and bridges that cut across the city.
As you walk further into the city, jordan retro 11 you’ll see the Venetian Tower, which is located in St. Mark’s Square, which also houses the famous St. Mark’s Basilica. The square is a beauty filled with cafes, restaurants, and pigeons that litter the center of the square during the time I was there (May).
From the square, you can basically go to the different, smaller streets of Venice and visit the Grand Canal – the largest canal in Venice, which is filled with Vaporetti boats – the primary transport in Venice. Aside from Vaporetti, there are of course, many gondolas that circle around the smaller canals of Venice.
If it’s your first time in Venice then it is a MUST that you take a ride in one of the beautiful gondolas. If you’re lucky, your gondolier would even sing for you! How romantic don’t you think?
What to Eat:
After the canal ride, my tip would be to use the Triposo App, to find good restaurants in the city! Since Venice is a touristy place, the prices of food are actually quite expensive. But, if you’re just spending a day in the city, then just indulge yourself with pasta, pizza, risotto, and anything Italian!
What to Buy:

If you’re a glass-lover that you’d appreciate how the glass craftsmen demonstrate how glass making is done! cheap authentic jordans It’s actually quite interesting! Just make sure you visit the Murano side of the island. Another great souvenir would be Venetian Masks, which you can wear at parties to hide your identity just like the movies! Souvenirs are actually quite cheap in Venice, so it’s a good idea to load up on souvenirs whilst in the city!
After eating and buying souvenirs, my suggestion would be to simply explore the tiny streets and canals of Venice! Take as much pictures as you can! Using again the Triposo App, you can make your cheap oakleys way to the famous Rialto Bridge.
