With hundreds of canals, 17th-century stone buildings on top of boat garages, narrow cobblestone streets and nary a car in sight, Venice is without a doubt one of the most enthralling cities in the world. Built on 117 islands, this Italian city was once a major center for trade and military power. While the full-time population has shrunk to around 60,000, the historic city sees 50 times that number in annual visitors. Venice's touristic heart centers around St. Mark’s Square, a large piazza where pigeons and tourists jostle for space (especially in overcrowded July and August). The piazza's basilica is cavernous and known primarily for its centuries-old mosaics. For a 360-degree view of the city, take the elevator to the top of St. Mark’s ... Read more
Campanile. Gondola rides have become almost synonymous with a trip to Venice, but the vaporetto, or water bus, is a less expensive, more local option to experience this water city from a different perspective. Hotels along the Grand Canal are worth a splurge, so take this into consideration when booking. Make your visit to Venice soon – this UNESCO World Heritage Site is endangered--it's literally sinking.

The trade off for prime al fresco dining weather in Venice is the crowds. As a general rule, the earlier you go in the warm season, the better the chance you’ll have of finding a good hotel deal and fewer tourists and mosquitos. Both the mercury and the number of visitors peak in July and August. By fall, the downside of having a city surrounded by water kicks in: acqua alta (high water) flooding occurs most frequently during the cooler months. That said, even if you have to pack galoshes or bug repellant, Venice is enchanting at any time of year. For a truly unique experience, plan a visit for Carnival in late February/early March when the city's historic mask tradition is on full display. As the event attracts millions of visitors each ...

Padua, Italy

Maybe it is my favourite city! It is unique and completely different from wathever I could find elsewhere. It is a romantic and crowded city, with many interesting places to visit, from churches to museums. Also a simple walk always turns in a fantastic experience, among water, fantastic buildings. Venice is always beautiful, even with fog. In this case it becames really mysterious. There are plenty of beautiful hotels, restaurants and shops. Also the islands around are worth for a daily trip. murano for glasses, Burano for the coloured houses and laces, Torcello as the first settlement of the lagoon, Lido for its beautiful beaches and international cinema exhibition in september.every time I go I found out something new.

I had an amazing experience in Venice! I love the smell of the sea in the air, in combination with the city with its narrow streets... Love it!

There's no place like Venice. I recommend you seeing it with your main squeeze! Very romantic and a sensory delight.

I visited it winter time and still found it amazingly beautiful. Warmer than I thought and fewer tourists. So I don't mind going back during off season again.

Venice is a beautiful city that I would love to go back to, even with the constant traffic of people walking around the islands. I spent three days in Venice which I would have had no problems extending, but the prices are a bit expensive so you have to have that in mind. Espacially transportation, so the best thing is to buy the day passes if you know you are going to travel between islands.

There are a lot of history to the city. And me and my friend were lucky enough to celebrate Redentore in Venice, which is the huge a celebration in Venice. It cost us a lot of problems on getting to the hostel, but the celebration made up for the hassle.

There is a lot to see and do. A great place to unwind even though there is a lot of people there. Not a nightlife place for me, just enjoying life and taking things easy :)

Rainy days and way too many tourists can't stop Venice from being exceptionally gorgeous and magical.

Take a ride on a gondola down a Venetian canal and be whisked away. Obviously you are now starring in a rom com where you are the star! Take a minute, you have arrived.
