Known to some as the world’s most romantic city – what is it about Venice that makes us weak at the knees? Is it the wonderful hazy light, perfect at sunset? Or a stereotypical gondola ride under the Bridge of Sighs? Whatever it is, here are some tips to avoid the clichés, yet keep the romance alive.
San Marco is the city’s unofficial centre, and a neighbourhood that most will associate as being archetypically Venetian. The number of iconic sights, including the stunning byzantine architecture of St Mark’s Basilica and the world-renowned La Fenice Theatre, will appease any sightseeing needs quickly. San Marco is definitely worth braving the high density of visitors, as its historic design and epic scenery is truly unforgettable. If you are here with a loved one, don’t forget the almost-compulsory sunset gondola ride, or stay at the romantic Gritti Palace overlooking the Grand Canal.
