The ancient city of Venice, named after the goddess Venus, is a treasure trove of sites to see and visit. Built over 117 islands in the middle of a lagoon, you might think that the city could only be visited by boat. But in fact, it has an incredible amount of alleyways and streets, all joined by over 400 bridges, some of which are aesthetic masterpieces. The other great pleasure to those who enjoy travelling on foot is that Venice holds the title of being “The Biggest Urban Car-Free Area in Europe”.

Venice is split into six sestieri (districts), all of which have their own house numbering system which stretches into the thousands. San Marco is probably the most visited sestiere of Venice. It’s where you will be able to find what Napoleon called “the drawing room of Europe” – St Mark’s square. Other musts in this area include St.Mark’s Basilica, the Doge’s Palace, the Campanile and the Correr Museum. Consider signing up for a tailor-made photography tour to help you take full advantage of the stunning photographic opportunities in and around Venice.

Then there is the Dorsoduro sestiere where the two top museums - the Accademia Museum and Guggenheim Collection - can be visited. Be sure to wander through the fish and vegetable market at Campo Santa Margherita.

San Palo is one of the oldest sestiere of Venice and connecting it to San Marco is the famous Rialto bridge. Full of medieval architecture, this area is best explored with the help of a guide who will lead you to the more hidden gems of the area, including the former red light district.

One of the largest sestiere that contains most of the locals of Venice and its famous Jewish quarter is Canneregio. For a real insight into this usually unexplored area, take the Venice Cannaregio and Jewish Ghetto Walking Tour and leave with a better understanding of this diverse district.
