Culture & History
Sitting side-by-side on Piazza San Marco, Venice's two most iconic buildings, Basilica San Marco and the Doge's Palace, are a must-see. A short boat ride from the square is Venice Lido - a relaxing seaside resort fringed by a long sandy beach, long a haven for aristocracy, poets and writers. Famed for its flamboyant, colourful glassware, Murano Island is where glass-blowers were sent centuries ago when deemed a fire hazard to the city. The island now hosts a glass-making museum and plentiful shopping opportunities.
