Known as the City of Canals and The Floating City, Venice is easily one of the most beautiful cities in Italy and Europe. If you close your eyes, you can just imagine floating down one of those canals in a gondola with the lights and sounds of the city behind you. Those canals are just one reason why so many couples choose to honeymoon here. Buy a Venice timeshare that lets you visit every year or a few times a year without breaking the bank. This city offers more to do than just canal rides.
See Amazing Artwork
To see gorgeous art dating back to Byzantine times, head to St. Mark's Basilica. This former private chapel is home to hundreds of pieces that include mosaics that welcome visitors as they enter. You can also see Pala d'Oro, which was started in the 12th century and updated in later years. Fans of architecture can head from the church to St. Mark's Square where historic buildings line three sides of the square. You might recognize the square from its appearances in films and television shows. The Bridge of Sighs is another popular attraction and close to the former palace. There's also the bell tower that has an elevator ride to the top.
Canals and Gondola Rides
No matter how often you visit your Venice timeshare, taking a gondola ride is one of the first things that you'll want to do. Canale Grande is the largest canal and one of the few canals that makes its way through the whole city. You'll pass under four different bridges and move by dozens of historic buildings on your ride. It's easy to book a gondola in advance or to pick one up as soon as you arrive. They take the place of the taxis that you'll find in other cities.
More to do in Venice
Travelers will find plenty to do in Venice, including shopping in Libreria Aqua. This is one of the oldest bookstores in the world and has thousands of books you can search through to find some to take home. Murano is one of the oldest glass companies in the world as well and has a factory tour that lets you see artisans at work. You'll then want to head to the Glass Museum to see some of the company's oldest pieces. Explore everything you love about the City of Canals with a Venice timeshare holiday.
