Have you ever wondered what it would be like to not have to look both ways before crossing a street? Well, in Venice, there are no cars period! It offers a unique perspective of the world before the invention of the automobile. When traveling to Venice I would recommend these three places to see.
Piazza San Marco- is the main square within Venice. It's open area gives you a 360 view of the most desirable tourist spots within Venice. The two main highlights are the San Marco Basilica and Campanile di San Marco bell tower. One suggestion would be to go during off hours when the square is less crowded, and it gives you a real opportunity to view the sights lit up and listen to the tower. (Sorry about the fog in the pictures, went really early in the morning)
MuranoIsland- is also a wonderful place to see when Venice. It is home to the world famous Murano Glass. It is a short water taxi ride away from the interior of Venice (20 Minutes). Murano Glass is all hand blown and shows all the best qualities it's known for. I would recommend watching their work, along with walking through their store. It offers glassware in all price ranges, and designs. BuranoIsland- Is another stop which is around a 40 water taxi ride away. It offers a unique color scheme for houses, and it typically a nice place to enjoy lunch and take in the scenery.
