Venice on Film

Venice on Film

Venice, this glamorous and highly photogenic Italian city is most famous for its winding canals that form the throbbing heart of the city, extravagant millionaire yachts that look rather out of place in this picturesque city, George Clooney’s wedding, and of course the San Marco Basilica. It’s also a great city to have a wander and completely lose your sense of direction. Don’t mistake small alley streets for dead ends, you’ll be surprised to find a big square or main street when you turn the corner!

Extraordinary architecture

No doubt you’ll pay the glorious San Marco basilica a visit during your Venice trip, but when it comes to extraordinary architecture, the spiral staircase of Scala Contarini del Bovolo deserves a special mention. It might be a bit tricky to find (it took us an hour!), but it’s definitely worth the struggle: it’s through a very inconspicuous alley just off Calle Locande near Campo Manin.
