Veni, Vidi, Venice! spent a night in Venezia


It took 2 hours from Vaclav Havel Airport Prague to Treviso Airport Venice. There is direct tourist bus service from Treviso Airport to Venezia which take roughly 1 hour. Unfortunately in the middle of the way our bus damaged and we had to wait 20 min and from airport another bus came which took us to Venezia. Once again bad luck, we were very near to our beautiful hotel but could not find it as it was not a building and surrounded in woods. Jolly Camping in Town was very beautiful & 10 min from Venice Canals and hotel provide free bus service in fixed interval to Venice. Though we visited many places, but following are most beautiful.

Grand Canal

The city’s water street snakes from beginning to end the centre of the town from Saint Mark’s Basilica to the Church of Santa Chiara. Lined on both side by Romanesque, Gothic and Renaissance construction, the Grand Canal is crossed by four main bridges, the most renowned of which is the 16th-century Rialto Bridge.


Doge’s Palace

The Palazzo Ducale was not just the dwelling of the doge but also the city centre of authority and its directorial hub as well. The structure was constructed in two phases. The eastern wing, which faces the Rio di Palazzo, was built between 1301 and 1340. The western wing, facing the Piazetta San Marco, took an additional 110 years to build and was completed in 1450.


Streets of Burano Island

Burano is in general less packed than Murano. And with its nearly cartoon-like brilliantly colored buildings, it makes the ideal milieu for a leisurely walk. Sincerely, the colours are so luminous and jovial that we were roaming around in this region of Burano for whole day.


Rialto Bridge

It is one of the world’s most illustrious bridges and the world’s most beautiful stone bridges. The Rialto, the oldest of four bridges of the Grand Canal in Venice, was completed in 1591, replacing a wooden bridge that collapsed in 1524. The gorgeous old bridge is one of the icons of Venice and is for all time full with thrilled sightseers.


Rialto Market

This primordial marketplace dates back to the 11th century. At present the market is situated on the bank of the Grand Canal, not far from the Rialto Bridge. The markets along with the bridge are one of the most admired tourist attractions in Venice.


Jewish Ghetto, Venice

Shakespear’s ‘Merchant of Venice’ is based on this place and it has the Jewish Museum: Museo Communità Ebraica. The Jewish Ghetto is a region of Venice where all Jews were forced to live from the 16th till the 18th Century.  This was in fact attention-grabbing region of Venice with lots of significant untold stories to tell.  You can still find a Jewish area living at this time, and lots of small restaurants and bakeriesthat sell Jewish specialities.  


Venice Gondola & Cruise

Many times a day we took cruise down the Grand Canal in Venice to enjoy the charm and characteristics of all the buildings lining the canal.  It was mesmerizing to watch all the other boats and Gondolas come and go, structures and lights’ reflection in canal water. It was most interesting activity as well as unavoidable thing in Venice.


St. Mark’s Basilica

Certainly Venice’s most illustrious basilica and one of the most striking in the world, St. Mark’s Basilica or Basilica di San Marco was formerly the Doge’s personal chapel, highlighted with Byzantine fine art riches that are pieces of the treasure brought back by Venetian vessels after the fall of Constantinople. The gold backed mosaic pictures near the doorways on the façade just hint at the mosaic artistic quality contained by, where 4,240 square meters of gold mosaics cover the domes and walls.



St. Mark’s Square

Three sides are bordered in arcades, underneath which are stylish shops and even more stylish coffee bars. The unlock end is bookmarked by the unpredictable, mysterious camber, whirl, mosaics, and lacy stone filigree of St. Mark’s Basilica. Above it towers the brick shaft of the campanile. For overviews of this busy piazza, you can go to its top or to the top of the Torre dell’Orologio, where a pair of “Moors” strikes the hour.
