All you need to know about Venice   by Matteo Cellini

Venice Hotels

Venice is an Italian City, the capital of Veneto. It is not so great a city, but it is still one nonetheless. It tells an ancient story, one that dates back to the years of 800 AD. It is hard to point a finger at the exact time or series of events that led to the development of Venice given the lack of etymological data to provide the proof. But that notwithstanding, Venice has a lot to offer and it is obvious that it lies with the architectural design of the town.

Water is in every way life for Venice since for one it provides one of the necessary means of transportation. Gondolas often mark the waterways but they are mostly used by tourists as they embrace the beauty of the city from a distance.

Venice is well known for its canals. They are all over the city and that is no surprise given the fact that it is built on an island and sometimes in water. Some are narrow and others wide but the overall picture is interesting.

Once in Venice, the most notable features and landmarks are the buildings that have embraced an architectural design that is lost in time. The churches for instance are well sculpted and remain the biggest attractions in the whole of Venice. San Marco is one of them, and it is free. But for the other churches, an entry fee may be required.

Museums are abundant in Venice and they are each dedicated to specific collection. Correr Museum for instance is the home to globes that date back as far as the 16th century. The clock tower was reinstated and a tour of the clock's mechanism is well worth visiting but you will need a tour guide.

The Glass Museum is dedicated to all things art and that is obvious given the glasswork that is displayed all over Venice. The Rialto Bridge to Venice is what the Eiffel Tower is to France; the most recognizable icon. Though having been around for hundreds of years, the bridge is still strong and makes for one of the great tourist attractions in the whole of the City.

In Venice, the most natural thing to do is to take a Gondola. But even though the method of transport concept seems outdated, it is expensive and goes for over 80 pounds sometimes. But with this amount you are entitled to a comprehensive tour of Venice. You will have a blast as you take you pictures since there is so much to see. The gondola experience may be ancient, but it beats taking a cab or a walk.

Venice offers an array of hotels for tourists; but they are expensive. If you are on a budget, you would be better off in some of the smaller Venice hotel that are more affordable. If you plan on staying for a couple of weeks you may opt for renting an apartment instead of staying at a hotel. Make sure you catch all the beauty that is Venice.
