Venice Canals Gondola Tour
Venice is known throughout the world for its fascinating transportation system; rather than use cars and roadways, the collection of islands that comprise the city is connected by a lattice of canals navigated by gondolas. A gondola ride is one of the most popular attractions in Venice, but it’s important to know when to go to avoid crowds of tourists and exorbitant prices. Our Enchanting Venice City Tour takes you through the canals in the morning, before the overwhelming throngs and occasionally unbearable heat. You’ll enjoy the glint of the morning sun on the water of the canals, steered by the oar of an experienced gondolier.
Water is omnipresent in Venice, so it’s no surprise that fresh fish is among the most popular items on sale at the city’s Rialto Market. Piles of baby octopus, squid, and soft-shell crab are always available, with local vegetables like baby artichokes on sale at neighboring stalls. Your visit to this market will be like that of millions before you, as the Rialto Market has been Venice’s food hub since 1097.
Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari
The entire city of Venice is designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site, and one of its most important buildings is the Basilica of Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari. Built in the 13th and 14th centuries, this striking brick church is recognizable due to its impressive bell tower; the bell tower was the last part of the church to be completed in 1396. In addition to the beauty of the architecture, the interior features several works of beauty as well: art pieces by noteworth Italians Donatello, Titian, and Giambattista Pittoni.
