What to see and do in and around Venice?

The crowded St. Mark's Square is probably Venice's most famous square. Enjoy coffee in one of the cafes while admiring the beautiful architecture surrounding it.

The Accademia Gallery is one of the finest art collections in Europe. The walls are made up of Venetian master painters, including Bellini, Titian, Veronese and Tintoretto.
Palazzo Ducale and Bridge of Sighs
The Palazzo Ducale was the home of the Doges, from where they led the Venetian state. He sees every aspect of the life of the Doge, from the time he lived and where public affairs were discussed, and enjoyed immunity from justice. Walk across the notorious Bridge of Sighs, whose name comes from the time the bridge led you from court to prison cells. The prisoners saw the beautiful lagoon and sighed.

It is impossible to think of Venice unless we think of the canals and the gondolas. Cars are not allowed in the city and all transportation is by water.
