Tour of the Grand Canal

With or without a gondola, the great Grand Canal of Venice is worth exploring. The ideal way to do so is on a passenger boat. You could also take a cruise that serves lunch or dinner making the voyage even more spectacular.

Venetian Wine

If you’ve been to Venice and left without having a glass of Venetian wine then you have no idea what you’ve missed out on. Mostly known for their collection of white wines along with red, the taste slightly is stronger than what you might be used to.

Shopping for Souvenirs

One thing you can’t miss out on while on a trip abroad is fishing through the markets looking for the ideal souvenirs to take back home. One can visit Vittorio Costantini for original lamps and glass work, Gaggio for fine fabrics and Attombri for beautiful jewellery. Don’t forget to pick up some authentic Venetian masks.
