The bridge connecting Venice to the mainland is about 3km long and has railway lines as well as car lanes. We suggest to get to Venice by train or by airplane and then explore on foot, by boat, steamers or by gondola.
Rialto is the only bridge connecting the two sides of Canal Grande.
By beautiful gondola, it the best and more romantic way to see Venice.
Venice has many bridges and, after Rialto, the more famous is perhaps "Ponte dei Sospiri", connecting the old jails to the newer.
San Marco square has many different buildings and monuments in different styles, making the atmosphere magic and unique.
The cathedral of San Marco is the most known Venice's church.
"Palazzo Ducale" (or Doge's palace) on the outer side of San Marco square.
Although Venice is invaded by thousands of tourists every day, there are also very peaceful places just a few minutes hike from San Marco square.
