The Beauty of Venice

Venice, Italy hardly needs an introduction, so I’ll try to keep things brief. This hyper-popular destination in the northeast of Italy gets trampled by crowds every single day of the year. Mid-afternoon, especially, is a crazy time to walk around in Venice.

Its popularity is justified, though. In my opinion, Venice is the most beautiful city in the world. Sure, there is kind of a hype surrounding it, but it truly is phenomenal. There’s just no other city like it.

With its countless canals, picturesque bridges, narrow cobbled streets and pastel-colored buildings, Venice is a photographer’s dream.

The best time to be in the city is (very) early in the morning—sunrise is gorgeous and exceptionally quiet. Sunsets aren’t too bad either, but that’s when most of the tourists are around as well. During the day, you can spend your time strolling the back streets of Venice, getting wonderfully lost, or heading out for a boat ride to one of the surrounding islands. Burano with its colourful fishermen’s houses is particularly recommended.

Explore Venice

Here we can do little except outline the main highlights – an entire set of encyclopedias would not be enough to cover every important historical monument in detail.

More importantly, we should convey the great beauty of the city of venice! The pleasure of simply strolling the streets, walking alongside the canals and pausing in a cafe is perhaps unequalled by any other city in the world!

The monuments which are most-visited are the Basilica di San Marco and the Palazzo Ducale. The Basilica di San Marco (Saint Marks basilica) is the great cathedral in Venice in the Byzantine architectural style – it is also the most famous and recognisable among the churches in the city, along with the other buildings that line the water-fronting Saint Mark’s Square (Piazza San Marco) in the centre of Venice.

Away from Saint Mark’s Square along the Grand Canal the Rialto Bridge is another very great architectural highlight.
