On most peoples buckets list is a trip to Venice, Italy. An amazing city built on stilts, spread over 117 islands with a complex system of canals, and surely one of the most romantic places in Italy. Yogoyo‘s Prakash Bang details one of his visits:

“Venice (Venetia to Italians) is one of the most interesting and lovely places in the world. This sanctuary on a lagoon is virtually the same as it was six hundred years ago, which adds to the fascinating character. Venice has decayed since its heyday with influx of tourists stealing the show (there are more tourists than residents), but the romantic charm certainly remains.

I drove from Bolzano to Mestre and checked into our Hotel Tritone, just across the Mestre railway station. Mestre would be our base for the next 3 nights and 2 days. From here we would explore the islands of Venice, Burano and Murano. There’s a parking lot next to the hotel, which makes it more convenient. Venice is on a lagoon, the water plays a crucial role in transportation… one doesn’t need a car to explore Venice. Just so you know, Venice is the world’s only pedestrian city!

Venice is made of different boroughs. The most famous is the area comprising the 117 islands in the main districts that are called “Sestieri” and they are: Cannaregio, Castello, Dorsoduro, San Polo, Santa Croce and San Marco, where the main monuments and sights are located. Other main districts are Isola Della Giudecca and Lido di Venezia. And important islands include Murano, Torcello, San Francesco del Deserto, Burano amongst others.

The republic of Venice dates back to 827, when a Byzantine Duke moved its seat to what is now known as Rialto, and for the following 970 years, prospered on trade under the rule of a Roman-style Senate headed by the Doge. In 1797, the city was conquered by Napoleon, a blow from which it never recovered. The city was soon merged into Austria-Hungary, then ping-ponged back and forth between Austria and a nascent Italy, but Venice is still a monument to the glory days of the Renaissance

A visit to Venice cannot be complete without a ride on a gondala. A 20-minute gondola ride in some of the inner canals of Venice would cost Euro 80 during daytime and Euro 100 post 7 PM. It indeed is expensive. Though we were advised that bargains can be struck with gondala owners, we were unsuccessful. Each one of them had a printed rate card and they wouldn’t budge on the price… thanks to the hordes of tourists. Anyway, we took the ride. The experience was necessary!”
