Follow this itinerary to make sure you don't miss out on the must-see places in Venice. Although this trip will take you around the most important sights, don't forget to get lost in the labyrinth of narrow streets, too!
Start your trip on the most famous square in Venice which boasts St. Mark's Basilica. Admire this 12th-century iconic landmark, which is also called "The Church of Gold" for its magnificent decorations and design, and then see the Renaissance Clock Tower. Continue to the Doge's Palace which houses the largest oil painting in the world, but book your tickets ahead if you want to get inside.
As you cross the canal to the Riva degli Schiavoni promenade, turn left to see the Bridge of Sighs. On your way to Rialto Bridge, you will pass along Church of St Maria Formosa and Basilica of Saint John and Paul. Cross the Grand Canal of Venice and admire one of the oldest churches in Venice, San Giacomo di Rialto.
Visit Rialto Market to buy some fresh veggies or fruit and continue to the Church of Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari. The church showcases priceless artworks from world-known artists. Next, stroll Campo Santa Margherita, a bustling street lined with bars, restaurants, and cafés.
Finally, take a walk down the Zattere Promenade to relax after an exhausting day of sightseeing. See Squero di San Trovaso, a shipyard which has been making and fixing gondolas since the 17th century, and finish your walk at the Basilica of Santa Maria della Salute, an imposing Roman Catholic church.
