Venice, Italy is a magical place. It is one of the few cities in the world where the sound of cars are never heard. Instead, when it is quiet, one hears the lapping of waves against the city’s magnificent Renaissance buildings. Venice offers a unique travel experience with plenty of charm. About 19 million tourists a year go to Venice for the romantic atmosphere, the art and the food.

Seeing Venice on foot is best. You can walk across the city in about an hour, and you definitely should. Since the most important site is the city itself, take your time. Stroll along the narrow streets or linger over a meal to soak up the feeling of the city.

Look around St.Mark’s Square first. For years, Venice was Europe’s wealthiest city, and this square was the city’s heart. Admire buildings such as St.Mark’s Basilica(圣马可大教堂)and the Doge’s Palace(总督府). Before going inside them to see the superb art treasures, pause to feed the square’s famous pigeons, or enjoy a coffee at one of the cafe.

 

While walking along the streets is fun, you can get around much easier on the city’s many canals. As you cruise(巡游)down the Grand Canal, Venice’s main “street”, in a water taxi, you’ll pass under the Rialto Bridge利雅托桥), a famous Venetian landmark. Get off the water taxi and walk across the bridge. Enjoy the view and the many shops that line the bridge.

In those shops, you’ll likely see lots of the glass that Venice is famous for. While in Venice, don’t forget to buy some glass as a souvenir.

No matter how long you’re in Venice, you’ll find an abundance of things to see and do. Museums, churches and the city’s delicious seafood all deserve attention. And last but not least, take a romantic, relaxing gondola凤尾船ride through the canals at night. You can then truly experience the charm of Venice.
