There is no city in the world more enchanting than Venice. It’s a city where time seems to stand still, and every corner holds a hidden story. 

It’s one of the most visited cities in the world and is famous for its labyrinth of canals and historic architecture, as well as the sobering fact that the city is slowly sinking each year, giving it the nickname “The Floating City.”

Whether you’re into history, culture, delving into the local cuisine, or want to experience some hidden gems, here is an itinerary that combines all of this and more!

Stop 1: Get an early morning coffee and pastry

Starting your day in Venice with a coffee and pastry is not just a way to get energy and substance for the day but is also a cultural experience that immerses you in the city’s rich traditions. 

Stop 2: Walk over the Rialto Bridge

Its iconic design and architectural beauty have made it a symbol of Venetian pride and a must-visit landmark for anyone visiting Venice.
