Go shopping on the bridge
The Rialto Bridge crosses Venice’s main waterway, the Grand Canal. You’ll find many small shops on this covered bridge and nearby there’s a huge market, the Campo della Pescheria. You can buy fresh fish here in the mornings, but there are also stalls with flowers, fruit and souvenirs. The Dorsoduro neighbourhood packed with palaces and amazing museums, is also well worth a visit. And Murano is just a stone’s throw away. If you’d like to know more about the Venetian art of glassblowing, you definitely have to visit this island.

This is Venetian romance at its best: exploring the canals in a gondola as the paddling gondolier sings 'O sole mio'. Even a gondola ride of less than an hour will easily set you back 100 euros. There are, however, other ways to admire the Doge's Palace and Rialto Bridge from the water without going bankrupt. Here are 3 budget-friendly alternatives to the infamous gondola ride.
ARTS & CULTURE
The San Marco Basilica is the stuff of real fairy-tales: large domes and towers, elegant arches, gilded mosaics and magnificent images of saints. And this is just the outside! Venetians themselves cannot get enough of the cathedral’s façade. The interior of the San Marco Basilica, dedicated to the city’s patron saint, is even lovelier.
