• When deciding what to do and what to see during your trip to Venice, keep in mind that the single most fun thing to do in Venice is not necessarily to plan it all, but simply to walk around and get lost in the many calles (alleys) and campos (squares). Not everyone knows that Venice is built on three hundred and seventeen small islands, and holds one hundred and fifty canals, connected by an amazing four hundred and nine bridges, of which only three cross the main canal. The area it covers is a mere 458 kilometres (284,59 miles). Although the city appears small, it is really quite extensive for its size. While most tour guides never recommend getting lost in a city, a Venice guide stands out as an exception: Venice is the perfect place to get hopelessly lost for a day.
• Venice Gondola rides and Serenate; One of the true symbols of Venice, recognised worldwide, is the Gondola. A must when in Venice is to hire an authentic gondola and sit back and relax, as your gondolier navigates the beautiful canals of Venice. As you glide along listen to the soothing sounds of a serenade just for you.
• Murano, Burano and Torcello tour: Always tops in a list of things to do when in Venice is exploring the famous islands of Murano, known for its glass blowing; Burano, famous for its handicrafts; admiring picturesque fishermen's houses, painted in lovely pastel colours; and seeing Torcello and visiting the first Cathedral in Venice.
• Cannaregio and the Jewish Ghetto: Enjoy a walk and discover the peaceful residential district of Cannaregio and visit the Jewish Ghetto.
• The Grand Canal in a private water taxi: In a city built on water, the best thing to do to, appreciate its beauty and uniqueness, is to catch a water taxi and admire the Grand Canal and minor canals of Venice. Ask the driver to go under the Rialto Bridge and the Bridge of Sighs so you may take a romantic picture.
