Built on 118 islands in a shallow lagoon, Venice is a city
like no other. It contains more than 150 canals and 400 bridges, which are delightful
to explore by gondola or vaporetto
(water bus). Today you might take a
to visit some of these islands.
Much of the city can also be seen on foot. Be sure to visit
the Grand Canal and the famous Rialto Bridge, as well as St. Mark's Basilica,
one of the best examples of Byzantine architecture in Europe. Other spots not
to miss include the Bridge of Sighs (said to have provided prisoners with their
last view of freedom before their incarceration), the Doge's Palace, the
Gallerie dell'Accademia and the island of Murano, famed for its glass-blowing.

features this famous city has to offer.
