Traveler Stories

Why I love Veneto

I’ll never forget the sense of wonder that I felt the first time I stood in the Piazza San Marco.

Riding in a water taxi along the canals of Venice in the region of Veneto feels almost magical. Venice is a city built on water with a complex system of bridges and waterways connecting the various islands. It really seems like something out of book.

On a recent trip, my friends and I decided to spend a day getting lost instead of sightseeing. Without a clear destination in mind, we wandered around the alleyways and cobblestone streets. On one of these turns, we found a small bridge that the gondolas seemed to travel under, and we spent a pleasant hour waving to the tourists in the gondolas.

What are the top three cities to visit in Veneto?

Answer

What are the top three cities to visit in Veneto?

Venice is the most well-known city in Veneto. While touring around the city, be sure to visit Saint Mark’s Basilica and tour the Doge’s Palace. The Doge were the rulers of Venice for more than 1,000 years.

Wine lovers will relish a visit to the city of Soave. The town is enclosed by walls that surround the large castle. Soave is famous for its local wine of the same name. Each year during the summer months, the town hosts several wine festivals and concerts.

Bassano del Grappa is a small town known for its ceramics, the Wood Bridge Alpini and, of course, grappa. This charming, medieval town is a great place to stay while exploring the outlying areas.

Is it worth waiting in line to visit Saint Mark’s Basilica?

Answer

Is it worth waiting in line to visit Saint Mark’s Basilica?

It is well worth the wait to visit this lovely basilica. Built in the Byzantine style, this stunning church was consecrated in the 11th century. The interior is laid out in a Greek cross with a nave on each arm.

The marble floor is designed in a beautiful geometric pattern with animal depictions at regular intervals. Be sure to notice the intricate mosaics that adorn both the walls and ceilings of the church.

Insider Tip: Be sure to take an umbrella or large bag with you to bypass lines. On the right side of the entrance is the coat check area; check your bag and then head into the church, avoiding the long lines outside.
