Album Photos What to do in Venice, Italy

On your tours Italy, your trip is not complete without a visit to Venice. Famous for her canals and glass works, there is much to see in Venice.

Glass work Shops - One of the best glass work shops is the Artigianto d'Arte di Vianello Mauro near the Rialtro Bridge not far from St. Mark's Square. With prior reservations, the owner of the glass shop will welcome you into the work area, where you can see their glass pieces come alive. If you wish, you can watch your glass product being made, or pick up some glass from the shop. Mauro will explain the complete process to you.

Venice's Grand Canal – To get the most out of your tours Italy, take the Vaporetti trip through the canal. You can get off and stop along the way without buying another ticket, as long as you don't back track. A trip is 16 euros and a marvelous way to spend the day. The canal extends from the train station all the way up to Lido, but many people get off at Saint Mark's square. Lido has excellent restaurants and shopping areas. Come to think of it, there is a lot to be said for going both ways. Your gondola driver is not a tour guide, so you may want to bring an audio tour or read up on the canal before your trip. This is a romantic way to spend the day. You can take the gondola's at night, but the canal is not well lit at night.

Saint Mark's Square – This is the center of Venice and a must on your tours Italy. The square has St. Mark's cathedral on one side, the palace of the former rulers of Venice, shops and the canal along the other side. You will find pigeons here that will sit on your shoulders if you feed them. Due to cruise ships, the square is very busy between 10:30 and 3:30. Come early or stay late to visit the historical buildings, then watch the crowds arriving. The square is also a great place to visit in the evening, with most restaurants having live music. Restaurants in the square can be quite expensive and busy, but if you can walk around the back of the square, you can find much better prices and places where the natives go.
