A lot of first-time visitors to Venice expect to see just the occasional canal snaking through hundreds of traditional streets, but this isn’t the case at all. In this wonderful location, the canals ARE the streets, and you’ll find hundreds of boats where you would have expected to see hundreds of motor cars instead.
There are a number of beautiful historic buildings in Venice, many of them located in and around St Mark’s Square. The Piazza San Marco, as it’s known locally, is breath-taking, dominated as it is by St Mark’s Basilica and the 98-metre high Campanile. Be sure to bring a camera with you when you visit the square, because there are photo opportunities at every turn.
Wonderful destinations, of course, but ultimately London’s Hyde Park isn’t that different from the Jardin des Tuileries in Paris.
