Why is the atmosphere in Venice something people rave about?

United Kingdom David, United Kingdom

Venice has no roads, it is a huge pedestrian precinct. This means there is no traffic noise and things move at walking pace. Venice has no city centre, no business district, no theatre area no shopping centre. Wherever you wander you will find a restaurant, a grocery store, a cafe or a cultural attraction. There is charm and character throughout the city. It is a place where you have to take your time over things and only fools try to rush around. Venice is a place you can keep revisiting because even if you try to visit the same places you saw on your last trip you will end up going down a different alleyway and discovering something new. I like that you get to a corner and the sign says left to Rialto Bridge and next to it is a sign that says right to Rialto Bridge. You can't get lost in Venice, or is it that you will get lost but it really doesn't matter- you'll get there in the end. Go visit.

    A City to Fall in Love With

    Renowned for its romantic charm, the entire city of Venice is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Spread across 118 islands, formed by 177 canals and connected by 409 bridges this city is truly magnificent.

    Its breath-taking architecture and spectacular art entice millions to experience its history and beauty every year. From San Marco Square with the Doge’s Palace to the lively Jewish Ghetto, Venice can be both opulent and down to earth.

    Visit the Rialto Market and the charming Rialto Bridge and then take a gondola ride through the canals before learning how Venetian and Murano glass is made. The city’s churches, piazzas and museums are all worth a visit and can be easily reached within a short walk.

    The Venetian Carnival is an unforgettable experience, with or without a mask. The latest trends in modern art are on display at the Venice Biennale and Italy's cinema take center stage at the world’s oldest Film Festival.

    Buses and boats run from Marco Polo International Airport and Treviso Airport to the city centre. From luxury hotels, to comfortable B&B, to self-catered apartments, Booking.com has great accommodations for your Venice trip.
