Venice is one of the most Important tourist destinations in the world for its celebrated art and architecture. I can say that Venice is one of my favorite cities in Europe. We went there with my wife 5 times and still love to go back there. The best time to visit is in May or at the end of September. There is still a lot of tourists in these months, but the weather is pleasant.
Tip: Ready before the trip. There is nothing worse than to be on San Marco square and then what? The city offers a quiet places where you can take a pictures. Maybe near Santa Maria della Salute. Magical place is a small square at Chiesa di Santa Maria Maggiore. You can give a good cappuccino here and enjoy the atmosphere of the city.
Tip: accommodation in Venice is quite expensive. Better accommodation is at Punta Sabbioni in the Venetian lagoon. You can find accommodation in hotels, private villas or at very good camps at an affordable price here. Regular transport by boat to Venice is until late at night. You can go to the beach and cool off in the sea in the evening.
This is the oldest workshop producing gondolas in Venice. Located about 10 minutes by walk from Santa Maria della Salute toward the harbor.
