Widely regarded as one of the most romantic cities on earth, Venice is made unique by its opulent Renaissance architecture, labyrinthine network of canals and bridges and, of course, its gondolas. Tourists are able to explore the city and its nearby islands via water taxis called vaporetti, the most famous of which include Murano and the Venetian Lido. Lying 9 miles from Venice, Murano is world famous for its luxury glass making industry which produces lavish chandeliers, delicate jewellery and colourful vases crafted by select few artisans based on the island. As well as interactive glassmaking workshops, tourists are also advised to visit the Murano Glass Museum which houses an impressive collection of Egyptian glass artefacts, as well as examples from the modern day.
Tourists who have experienced St Mark’s Square, Basilica and Campanile; the Bridge of Sighs, and the Doge’s Palace, in addition to all else that Venice has to offer are encouraged to spend a day enjoying the sun, sea and sand on one of the Venetian Lido’s public beaches. Situated on the warm, azure Adriatic Sea, the beaches are popular with those seeking to cool off during the stifling summer months.
