Venice Points Of Interest
Consists of 117 separate islands, Venice is globally known for its canals and historic bridges that connect the islands together. Central Venice consists of six main regions: Cannaregio, Castello, Dorsoduro, Santa Croce, San Polo and San Marco. Every year, thousands of travelers come to Venice for its stunning architecture, museums and art galleries and some of the best Italian restaurants. Cannaregio, situated on the northern Venice, connects Venice to the Italy mainland. Castello is the most historical area and known for the Arsenale ship-building yard. Dorsoduro is on the southern Venice, which visitors can find the 17th-century Dogana da Mar. Looking for restaurants and a place to stay? San Polo district is the place you should go! As a tourist, no one will definitely miss the San Marco Square (St. Mark’s Square). San Marco Square is the only public square and it is where the Basilica San Marco (St. Mark’s Basilica) and Doge’s Palace (the Palazzo Ducale) are. Without staying on the gondola to travel around Venice among the canals, you haven’t truly experience the best of Venice. Other than the main Venice Island, BuranoIsalnd, which famous for its lace making and Murano Island, which famous for its glass factory are probably something to check out as well.
