Venice is one of the world’s most famous cities. They owe an interesting tangle of channels along which throughout Venice sails exactly 400 gondolas, a colorful carnival where you can enjoy the elaborate masks, or the magnificent square of St. Mark, which is flooded every year.
Venice is located in the north of Italy. Traveling by car from Slovakia takes less than 10 hours (depending on where you are traveling from). However, bus tours for one or two days are also very popular, which are also financially advantageous. For the more comfortable travelers, there are of course also air trips. Be sure to ask the hotel about the next trip to the city, as they can give you good advice and usually you can buy bus tickets right at the hotel reception. If you arrived by car, depending on the parking lot, it depends on whether you can get to the center on foot or by boat, which is common in Venice, as with our tram.
Accommodation facilities can be found around the city really enough. I personally recommend that you choose a hotel through booking.com as you will also find customer reviews and other important information.
Venice hides a lot of monuments
Venice as a historic city was very developed already in the 15th century, when trade flourished. Many admirable buildings have been built there, such as St. Mark’s Cathedral, located on the well-known St. Mark’s Square. You will also find the almost 100-meter-high Campanile Tower, and the Ducal Palace, which now also serves as a museum.
Given that Venice is dotted with various channels, such as the most famous, the Grand Canal, there must be many bridges. The most monumental is the Rialto Bridge, just above the canal.You can also find the almost 100 meters high tower of the Campanile, and the Ducal Palace, which now serves as a museum.This all in one and the same square, which lives in times of floods throughout flooded and tourists can stay there on artificial trails.
The Bridge of Sighs is also known. He was once a local prison, and it is said that every time the convicted prisoners crossed the bridge they sighed so loudly. You can also enjoy a very popular view of Venice (see below) from the Ponte dell’Accademia, which is also known for its couples hanging locks, symbolizing the love between them. the high tower of the Campanile, and the Ducal Palace, which now also serves as a museum.
A truly exceptional event that must be seen at least once in life and thus experience the Venetian Carnival. It takes place every year in February and is known worldwide. There you can see people dressed in beautiful costumes, often representing the Venetian community in the past.There are definitely 400 gondolas in Venice’s popular attractions. There are exactly 400 of them. All day transporting tourists in a nice costume, around the beautiful city and earn money. (one short cruise costs at least 80 euros). But the truth is that unless you were born into a gondolier family, you can not do any gondolier and besides your own gondola you need even a school for this profession. All this in one and the same square, which is flooded in times of floods and tourists can stay there on artificial trails.
Murano glass is glass, known for Venice, where I produce it. You can find it in every souvenir shop. However, even if the vendor shows you the certificate of authenticity of the product, in fact the thing in Venice was only put together, so businessmen have the right to speak and sell products as genuine. Even though it is not always real Murano glass, the products are really beautiful and as a souvenir you will learn to enjoy it for a long time.
