One of the prettiest and beautiful cities in Italy has to be Venice.
With its beautiful canals, rich history and culture, and architectural marvels, the city promises a unique and memorable holiday.
This is the only city in the world that is labeled as a pedestrian city. People can walk around the city and explore its treasures, and if walking is too tiring, there are ample water buses and taxis that can take you from one part of the city to the other.
When visitors first arrive their first view of the canals intersecting the landscape of this city. This view is more than enough to assure people that they made the right choice in choosing their holiday destination.
According to historians, the city came about during the fifth century when people living near the sea use to hide in islands and swamplands to get away from ravaging nomadic tribes from Asia. This laid the foundation for the city and today, it is one of the most visited cities in Italy.
Of course, its attractions further enhance the holiday experience.
People traveling to Venice will get an opportunity to see and climb the Rialto Bridge. On either side of the bridge are flea markets and shops that are worth visiting. However, the bridge itself is extremely popular sight in the city that visitors should see and experience.
Another popular tourist attraction in the city is the St. Mark’s Basilica. The basilica has museums that are worth checking out, but the architecture of the building is also a huge attraction with visitors. The square where the basilica is located is also worth checking out.
