Venice is such an exciting city full of history and adventure, you may be wondering what to see and do first. It built on more than 100 islands in the Venetian Lagoon. Venice often referred to as the "City of Water,”. The city is most well known for the beauty of its surrounding waterways. Though the city tends to be associated with romantic getaways, there's much more to Venice than romance, including historical architecture, fine dining, and cultural festivals.

The must see attractions to include in your itinerary is St. Marks Basilica. This is one of the more popular attractions. The architecture is breathtaking, with domes and marble pillars on the outside, and mosaic patterns from top to bottom on the inside. Then you can visit Doge's Palace. It located right next to St. Mark's this is an excellent tour for the history buff. Walk on the famous Bridge of Sighs as you complete your tour, and get a fabulous view of the city. Do not miss to visit Grand Canal Tour. This is Venice's main waterway, and no trip to Venice is complete without having a tour in a gondola, while watching the palaces, cafes and restaurants that line the streets. Rialto Bridge is another must see tourist place. This is one of Venice's most famous and photographed bridges. Do not miss Clock Tower. This is another historic building that any history buff will enjoy. You will have a guided tour via a narrow stairway to the top of the building, passing the clock's mechanism on the way up. Keep in mind that tours must be booked in advance, so get your tickets before you go. Check the local weather forecast before you go as well; Venice's weather tends to be mild, but you will want to pack a sweater or light jacket for the evenings. Winters can be cool, so you'll want gloves and warmer clothes. Don't forget your camera; you'll want to capture all of the sights so you will have a scrapbook to create when you get home.
