Let's see Venezia

Was researching on the “city of Water” this week, and have stumbled upon the Venice Card. I think this card offers so much and is a great way to see different attractions in this lovely city as it incorporates discounts to transport and culture (museums, churches, etc). I actually even found their website quite useful with the events and transport headings, as in including boat lines and all. Surely when I visit Venice I would get this. Here are just a bit of places to visit when in Venezia:

Grand Canal – The busiest and grandest canal which showcases a myriad of gondolas and water transport.

St. Mark’s Square (Piazza San Marco) – The most photographed plaza in the heart of the city. An area rich with sophisticated cafes and shops.

Campo Santa Margherita – A popular piazza.

Clock Tower (Torre dell’Orologio)

Bell Towe (Campanile di San Marco) – The highest architectural building with great views of the city.

Peggy Guggenheim Collection

Gallerie dell’Academia – Art gallery housing only the finest art collections.

School of St Roch (Scuola di San Rocco)

Basilica dei Frari – A gothic Franciscan church whose interior showcases works from famous artists.
