Where to stay in Venice

Exploring Venice

One of the world’s most romantic destinations, Venice’s island sanctuary remains virtually unchanged since its glory days in the early Middle Ages. The Republic of Venice and its Doges ruled the vastly profitable trading routes between the West, the Byzantine Empire, Asia and the Islamic world thanks to its strategic position at the northern tip of the Adriatic Sea, close to the Alpine trade routes. The resulting riches saw the construction of magnificent palaces, mansions and religious buildings along the city’s Grand Canal, immortalised by Renaissance artist Canaletto in his series of views of Venice.

Perhaps the most romantic aspects of the city are its canals and famous bridges, with gondola rides still the classic way to soak up the ambience of this historic world treasure. From the grandeur of the main canal, with its ornate mansions rising from the waters, to the tiny winding waterways known as the Streets of Venice, the city’s unique sights cast their spells over millions of visitors every year. Venice’s smaller islands, set offshore from the main Rialtine islands, are attractions in their own right, easily accessed by vaporetti, the city’s water buses.

Sightseeing in Venice

- St. Mark's Basilica

St. Mark's Basilica, built in the eleventh century, is the most famous and most recognizable of all the churches in the city of Venice. In its design visitors will find mixes of eastern and western building styles in a unique way. The exterior is beautifully ornate and visitors can spend a good time just looking at all the details from the exterior.

- St. Mark's Square

Piazza San Marco (for puritans) and its magnificent basilica are the most imposing, set just a step from the Starhotel Splendid. Here you’ll find the Doge’s Palace, the Clock Tower, with its amazing astrological clock, and the nearby Rialto Bridge, the city’s icon.

Transportation in Venice

Marco Polo International Airport is the main gateway for the city’s millions of visitors. It is set on the mainland and linked to the city by water bus, water taxi or road, which stops at the edge of the pedestrianised Rialtine islands. Transportation in the ancient city itself is by water or foot power, with no option for road-going vehicles. The train station is near the car parks, again connected to Venice proper by water. The massive and expensive parking lot for visitors arriving by car is at Piazzale Roma and Tronchetto.
