The 25 best sights in Venice – what to see, description, photos

The 25 main sights of Venice

The first room opens with Byzantine works, a style that influenced the city’s early artists. Halls 2-5 contain paintings by Carpaccio, Mantegna, Bellini and other masters reflecting the heyday of the Renaissance in Venice, as well as the Academy’s most famous painting, the enigmatic Storm by Giorgione (approx. 1500).

In Halls 10 and 11 are masterpieces from the High Renaissance, such as Veronese’s Dinner at Levi’s House (1,573) and Tintoretto’s iconoclastic paintings The Miracle of St. Mark and The Transfer of St. Mark’s Body.

Levi Veronese’s “Dinner in the House.”

Leave enough time to consider the Academy’s most interesting exhibits, two storie, or cycles of frescoes (Halls 20 and 21). The first, The Miracle of the Holy Cross (1494-1510), was painted by different artists for the Scuola di San Giovanni Evangelista. Each fresco depicts a miracle performed by a relic of the “Holy Cross,” which the Scuola possessed, although often the miracle itself takes second place to a fascinating episode in the life of the saint.

The same can be said of the second cycle written by Carpaccio for the Scuola di Sant’Orsola, with episodes from the Lives of St. Ursula.

Try not to come on a Sunday and come as early as possible.

What to see in Venice in 1 day

A one-day trip can also be as full of experiences as a week-long vacation. Conveniently, Venice’s main attractions are concentrated within a single neighborhood – central San Marco.

You can start your walk at the Rialto Bridge at the northern end of the quarter. This is the oldest and most famous bridge in Venice. It rests on 12,000 piles and has a height of 7.5 meters. Around the scattered small stores with curious things.

Then the route stretches along the shore of the Grand Canal. If you do not want to walk, you can paddle to the Piazza San Marco in a gondola – the symbol of Venice. The city opens up from the other side if you look at it from the water – just as it was once perceived by previous generations of residents.

On the right hand on the shore is the Galleria dell’Accademia. You can stop here to see with your own eyes the paintings of Venetian geniuses: Tintoretto, Titian, Giorgione and others.

Works of art, only now more modern, belonging to the twentieth century, are collected in the Peggy Guggenheim Collection. Among the masters represented are, for example, Chagall, Picasso, and Magritte.

The final point of the walk is the Bridge of Sighs. In fact, its name has nothing to do with the meeting of lovers. It has a rather sad story: prisoners sentenced to death were walking on the bridge, and it was their last breath of fresh air.

Excursions from Venice

From Venice you can go on a boat trip along the Venice lagoon and see the islands of Murano, Burano and Torcello. The tour involves visiting the main museums and attractions on the islands.

If you are visiting the islands of the Venetian Lagoon on your own, it makes sense to buy a combined ticket to the Murano and Burano museums, which entitles you to access without queuing.

San Simeone Piccolo

San Simeone Piccolo

The church of Simeone Piccolo is located opposite the Santa Lucia train station in the Santa Croce district on the Grand Canal promenade. This religious structure was built in 1738 by Giovanni Antonio Scalfarotto in the Neoclassical style, although the foundation of the church dates back to the 10th or 11th century.

San Simeone Piccolo is the only church in Venice where services are still conducted in Latin. The dome is shaped like an oval bowl. It is covered with lead plates and visually increases the height of the building. The architect was apparently inspired by the Roman Pantheon when constructing the dome. Interestingly, the church has an underground crypt that has not been fully explored.

The Island of Poveglia

The mysterious island of Povella is closed to visitors. You can not get there, the approaches to it are guarded by the maritime police. In the Middle Ages Povella was a place of isolation for plague patients. Even healthy people who were in contact with the sick were taken there. A total of 1 square kilometer buried 1500 victims of the epidemic.

In the 20th century, a hospital for the mentally ill was opened on the ominous island. It is said that the patients constantly heard voices and screams. After the tragic death of the hospital doctor, the clinic ceased to exist and the area was closed to visitors.

Museum of Costume and Perfume at the Palazzo Mocenigo

In the magnificent Palazzo Mocenigo in Venice you can take a fascinating journey into the history of fashion in Venice.

Besides a collection of precious furniture and paintings from the eighteenth century, the former residence of the patricians houses the Center for the Study of Textile and Costume History, which houses a rich collection assembled by the various owners. The collection consists of rare exhibits of textiles and clothing, including particularly valuable original 18th-century gowns. The clothes and accessories on display here, mostly of Venetian origin, are made of worked fabrics, often decorated with embroidery and lace. The collection demonstrates the skills of different categories of artisans – weavers, tailors, lacemakers and embroiderers – who contributed to the refined elegance for which the Venetians were famous.

Since 2013, the museum has had a perfume section that illustrates Venice’s important role in the birth of the perfume tradition. There is also a large library dedicated to this area of history.

Ca d’Oro

www.cadoro.org

The “Golden House”, as the palace’s name is translated, is a masterpiece of Gothic architecture, inside of which is hidden a fine collection of Renaissance paintings. The palace was built in the 15th century by the architects Giovanni and Bartolomeo Bon. Originally the lace facade was decorated with gold leaf, vermillion and ultramarine – unfortunately, as a result of the barbaric reconstruction of the 19th century, the gold from the facade disappeared. The palace’s last owner, Baron Franchetti, amassed a magnificent collection of Renaissance paintings, and after his death in 1927 the palace was transformed into a gallery named after him. For the main jewel of his collection, Mantegna’s Saint Sebastian, the baron built a marble chapel. Triptych dedicated to the Virgin Mary, Carpaccio, Tintoretto’s Portrait of Nicolo Priuli, Titian’s Venus Before a Mirror, Van Dyck’s Portrait of Marcello Durazzo – pictures worthy of the best museums of the world can be seen here, among other Renaissance rarities.

Founding of the gallery

The Accademia Gallery was founded by the Venetian Senate back in 1750, as a school of painting, sculpture and architecture. The creation of this institution had a noble and vain goal – to raise Venice to the level of one of the centers of artistic education of the country, so that it could equal in its fame with such famous cities as Rome, Florence, Milan and Bologna. Originally this educational institution was called the Academy of Fine Arts of Venice, but in 1807 it became known as the Royal Academy of Fine Arts.

The history of the museum began in the early 19th century and originally the church premises of Santa Maria dela Carita housed only the collection of the Academy. Later the museum’s holdings gradually increased until they became the richest collection. Opening hours of the Galleria Accademia Museum are from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m., with a short day on Mondays until 2 p.m., and weekends on holidays.

Academy Gallery Museum

Academy Gallery Description

The Academy Gallery occupies the building of one of the former monasteries, which was built long before it was founded – in the early sixteenth century. From the outside the building seems relatively small, and once inside, it is hard to believe that such a structure can hold such an impressive number of masterpieces of Italian art. All in all, there are 24 halls, one of which – 23 – is located in a completely different building and is intended for temporary exhibitions. Part of the collection is arranged in chronological order, and part is thematic, so in reality there is no difference in the order in which the exhibits are viewed.

The modern museum treats its visitors with care. Apart from the opportunity to enjoy the masterpieces of the city on the water by yourself, you can order a personal tour (but only in Italian, French or English), borrow sound equipment (headphones and a special player, which will be triggered when you approach a particular exhibit), visit the antiquarian shop and even leave luggage for storage. The latter is especially handy if you have already checked out of the hotel, but have plenty of time before your flight.

Food, cafes, restaurants

Once in Venice, you must try the Italian dishes:

  • Pasta – pasta and various fillings (meat, seafood, vegetables), cheese or tomato sauce;
  • pizza – a huge variety of toppings;
  • moleche – a dish of small fried crabs, served with a side dish, all kinds of sauces;
  • rijoto de go – a combination of rice and fish;
  • venetian liver – soft liver and pronounced flavor of roasted garlic;
  • black risotto – rice cooked with cuttlefish;
  • baicoli – dry cookies;
  • Italian ice cream is a creamy treat made according to a special recipe (more sugar, less fat content).

But the major masterpieces are paintings by Titian, Carpaccio, Batista, Giorgione, Tintoretto and Bellini. These names are only part of a large collection.

Museums on the Islands

Venetian museums, telling the rich history and traditions of the Venetian Republic, are not only located in its magnificent historic center. Immersed in the magic of the Venetian lagoon, the islands hold captivating collections of Venetian museums.

Glass Museum Murano

The garden of the Glass Museum on Murano Island

The fame of the island of Murano is inextricably linked to the master glassblowers. At the Murano Glass Museum, Museo del Vetro di Murano, you are taken on an extraordinary journey that reveals the island’s connection to Venice over the centuries.

The museum is located in the aristocratic Palazzo Giustiniana, the former residence of the bishops of Torcello. The collections are arranged chronologically: in addition to the archaeological section, which includes significant Roman artifacts from the 1st to 3rd centuries A.D., there is the largest historical collection of Murano glass, featuring important pieces produced between the 15th and 20th centuries, including world-famous masterpieces such as those by Venini, Zecchini and Carlo Scarpa. Temporary exhibitions of valuable glass collections are often held in the halls. The palazzo’s garden is also worth a visit, displaying contemporary glass works in a particularly evocative context.

  • Address: Fondamenta Giustinian 8, 30121 Murano
  • Opening hours: Thursday to Sunday from 11.00 am to 5.00 pm Last access: 4.00 pm.
  • Tickets: 10,00 € full price
  • Vaporetto: From Piazzale Roma, Stazione centrale – line 4.1 or line 4.2, stop Museo Murano

Lace Museum of Burano

How can you be in Venice without discovering the history of Venetian lace, symbol of Venetian craftsmanship. The history of lace is shrouded in legends and poetic speculation, necessarily linking its origins to the sea. They are simple stories inspired by the life of fishermen, the wonders of the sea and, of course, love.

At the Burano Lace Museum, an incredibly picturesque Venetian island, you will discover the tradition of Burano lacemaking, one of the oldest and most fascinating traditions of Venice. The museum, opened in 1981, is located in the former Burano Lace School, founded in 1872 by Countess Andriana Marcello to restore and revive a centuries-old tradition.

After the school was closed, in 1978, with the help of the Andrian Marcello Foundation, the museum was established on the basis of the valuable archive of Antica Scuola Merletti, rich of important historical documents, drawings and lace products.

  • Tickets: 5,00 € full price
  • Vaporetto: from Piazzale Roma, Stazione ferroviaria – line 4.1, line 4.2 or line 5.2, to Fondamenta Nuove, then change to line 12, stop Burano

History of the Gallery

The history of the Gallerie dell’Accademia begins thanks to the Venetian Giovanni Battista Piazzetta. In 1750 he petitioned to found the Venetian Academy of Fine Arts, where young people could study the arts of painting, architecture and sculpture.

The creation of such an institution had another ambitious goal – to make the city a significant center of painting and sculpture in Italy, putting it on a par with Rome, Milan, Florence.

So for several centuries the former church building under the shade of the San Marco gardens gradually became a place where new generations of talent were nurtured.

The bridge of the Accademia in the picture

By the beginning of the 19th century the institution was named the “Royal Academy of Fine Arts”. And the academy itself was moved to another building, where it is still located today.

The bright halls, formerly occupied by the art school, were given over to the museum.

Now it keeps sculptures and paintings of the greatest Italian masters: Vechellio Titian, Paolo Veneziano, Giorgione, Lorenzo Veneziano.

Tour of the museum

Surely a tour of the Galleria dell’Accademia will begin with astonishment for you. Quite, at first glance, a small building of the museum holds 25 halls, and the presented collection cannot be called modest.

The first room introduces the Byzantine icons, whose artistic features strongly influenced many Venetian masters, such as Giovanni Bellini. Here are his works, the famous Madonnas, as well as those of his father and brother Giovania.

The gallery also has works by the Venetian Titian. But he worked more often outside his native city. Of the works by Titian can be seen paintings: “Pietà” and “The Taking of Our Lady to Heaven. Many experts consider The Taking of Our Lady to Heaven to be the best work of the artist.

With the legendary picture of Titian is connected with an interesting story. For a long time it simply lay in the church Dei Frari, safely covered with mold and dirt. But one day it caught the eye of Count Cicognaro. He saved this work of art from oblivion.

No less remarkable in its significance for the history of art is Paolo Veronese’s large-scale work Dinner in the House of Levi. It is incredibly realistic portrayal of people rejoicing in the impression they make on the audience.

Of great interest is Tintoretto’s cycle of paintings The Miracle of St. Mark. Art historians say that in it the artist more fully revealed his talent.

No less worthy of attention and a cycle of paintings by Vittore Carpaccio The Story of Saint Ursula. This is one of only two cycles preserved on the territory of Venice.

In addition to the works of the artists already named, the Gallery of the Academy features paintings by Iacobello del Fiore, Lorenzo Lotto, Francesco Guardi and others.

Opening hours

  • The museum is open Tuesday through Sunday from 8:15 to 19:25.
  • Mondays from 8:15 a.m. to 2 p.m.

There are free days at the museum. Check the official website for details.

How to get there

You can reach the museum by vaporetto on the Grand Canal. The final stop will be called Ponte dell’Accademia.

The address is: Ponte dell’Accademia, Campo della Carita, 1050.

The Accademia Museum on the map

Getting into the Galleria dell’Accademia is not easy. There are almost always crowds of tourists waiting in front of the entrance. But the unique collection of the museum is worth any, even the longest, wait. So we hope you can wait your turn to see the sights.

Venice sights

Venice: Grand Canal and Santa Maria della Salute

Venice sights : where to look for and how to spot the main ones? Which places are really worth a visit? Are they so unique and inimitable that not visiting them is like not going at all? Eurotraveler.ru took a close look at a few of the most mentioned sights of the Canal City, forming our own opinion. Naturally, our authors were guided by personal impressions as well!

Venice is probably the second most popular city in Italy. Second only to Rome. Only lazy guidebook did not describe the iconic and curious places in the capital city of Veneto. Or the one that just does not write about Italy.

The Basilica di San Marco and the Doge’s Palace are emphasized in every first work devoted to the architectural gems of the city on the water. The list also often includes the Rialto Bridge, the island of glassblowers Murano. And Burano – if you make it to the lagoon!

Boat trip to Murano, Venice

In recent years, more and more travelers mention the huge brick cathedral of Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari in the area of Sa Polo. For for all its external modesty inside, this church is literally consecrated by the genius of Tintoretto.

But many other, really interesting sights, which are worth seeing once in Venice, are still in a dense shadow. People are in a hurry and go “over the top”. And he can hardly be blamed – where to find so much time to consider literally everything. And even in details!

Excursions, of course, help. Especially non-trivial – skryitaya-venetsiya. But not everyone is ready to part with the sum, more than a hundred euros… Even if for three hours of interesting and very informative walk!

However, we got distracted, and went back to our own track. “Walk” on which we are going to sensibly, with the head. Critically assessing the overused clichés, assiduously hammered into the heads of gullible travelers.

Often coming to the “City on the water” is not just for one day – for a few hours. And vested interest in seeing the main things in Venice! Secondary and simply unknown in this situation – like this Giudecca – as expected recedes into the background!

Giudecca Island, Venice

What to see in Venice

We might want to, but we can’t ignore St. Mark’s Square and Piazzetta. That’s where the first thing tourists look for once they set foot on the Grand Canal embankment near the train station. And the question “how to get to St. Mark’s”, asked in different languages, is probably the one most frequently asked at the windows of the vaporetto ticket office.

9 best sights of Dzhemete - description and photos

Such interest is understandable, but the number of those interested is naturally oppressive. After all, San Marco: the center of crowds of tourists and expensive cafes. The place where everyone wants to take pictures of the famous basilica. It’s hard to catch the angle – all the time someone is crawling in the frame – and generally incomprehensible are the dithyrambs that are sung about the place.

Counting on catching the aura of the famous city here while stirring your coffee with a spoon? In 2020, when Chinese tourists have not just discovered, but already mastered Europe? Alas, even in November Venice is not possible: the area and the adjacent waterfront are packed almost like a market on a Sunday afternoon.

At night, though, if you can’t sleep, you can find a time… almost deserted and magical!

Basilica and Piazza San Marco in Venice

St. Mark’s Basilica. There is always a line, and on a summer day be prepared to stand for at least an hour to get in. Admission is free and the inside is really lush and lavish – it justifies the patient wait. But at 4:45 p.m. the free flow of tourists is cut off and anyone interested is sent to the upper loggia and the treasury – for a small (€6), but money.

The Campanile, that is, the bell tower of St. Mark. It did not survive to this day – it collapsed. And then in the same place built a new bell tower. Tourists crowd in line to get to the top and look at Venice from the top, but you are in no hurry. Read on and you’ll see why…

Palazzo Ducale

That is, the Doge’s Palace, the residence of the aristocratic officials who exercised executive power in the city until 1797. The flow of travelers to the entrance is not too great. Or maybe it’s the twenty-dollar charge for admission? Venetians are allowed in for free and it’s not insane generosity – the city has just over 100,000 citizens today.

The interior halls are really impressive, although they are not replete with furniture and paintings. But there is no need for them: intrigues that shook the whole Europe were woven here, and treaties that changed the course of history were drawn up.

The audioguide will allow those who can understand spoken English or Italian to compose a complete picture of Venice’s history. Those who have only mastered a school course will get information from the stands, with which all the halls are equipped.

The ticket allows you to visit the New Prison and see tourists swarming through the cracks in the Bridge of Sighs, and to visit the Correr Museum, which occupies part of the Procuratie. Not an overly impressive exhibit, but in addition to the palace? Why not?

Inside the modern Correr Museum there are rooms that were occupied by Empress Sisi, wife of the Austro-Hungarian Kaiser Franz Joseph, who looked out of these windows at the Grand Canal and the place where it merges with the Giudecca, at San Giorgio Maggiore and… dreamed. It was the order of the day here: vague images swarmed in her head, and thoughts appeared seemingly out of nowhere.

Slightly hidden in the labyrinth of streets, but for many a must-see attraction in Venice, is the La Fenice Theater. Obviously it is not for everyone. However, seeing Verdi’s powerful opera on the famous stage is guaranteed to elevate your senses.

San Giorgio Maggiore

A separate island in the lagoon of Venice doesn’t seem to be as famous as Murano-Burano. But the church of San Giorgio, which Antonio Palladio rebuilt in the classical way, and the ancient monastery behind it cry out for a visit!

It’s not too easy to get here: a vaporetto no. 2 runs from Santa Lucia Station. But not along the Grand Canal, but around it – via Giudecca!

Those wishing to visit this grandiose church in its simplicity and grandeur should arm themselves with a pass (1, 3, or 7 days) for transportation. Otherwise, the cost of transportation will seem excessive.

“The Last Supper” by Tintoretto – wait, think who’s where – and the bell tower are two additional lures. You’ll be lifted up to the latter for only 3 euros, and the views around…you’ll be glad you didn’t stand in line for St. Mark’s Campanile!

Venice, view of the Giudecca Canal

Dorsoduro

The neighborhood is right across the canal from the “goodies” of San Marco, but is generally not as populated by tourists. If you step back from the streets leading from the vaporetto stop at the Accademia Bridge to the church of Santa Maria della Salute. It is always crowded and there are plenty of shops selling traditional Venetian souvenirs: what to bring back from Venice as a gift?

Maldives and the beautiful nature of the Atolls

The Accademia Bridge, an interesting landmark of the place, connects the banks of the Grand Canal in a very lively place. Erected in the 20th century, but made of wood. Photos and selfies in both directions are great, but you will have to sweat to choose the moment – too many people want to do the same.

The Galleria dell’Accademia is the largest art museum in Venice. Inside: beautifully preserved interiors, excellent icons, paintings by Bellini, Veronese, Carpaccio Tintoretto and Titian. A superb collection, definitely worth the €15 it costs to visit.

Tourists under 18 are admitted for free.

A couple of minutes’ walk away is the Peggy Guggenheim Collection. Specializes in contemporary art, with no ties to Venice. Picasso, Braque, Duchamp, Mondrian, Kandinsky, Klee, Dali, Giacometti. For admission will ask similar € 15, only children under 10 years will enter for free.

Santa Maria della Salute is an epic church. According to many – the most beautiful in Venice. In addition, and the obvious dominant point of the area. It belongs to the “pen” of Baldassare Longhena, an architect who is not too well known. By building a temple on a fairly marshy place Venetians thanked God for stopping the plague epidemic of 1630-1631, which mowed out a third of the inhabitants.

The church of Santa Maria della Salute looks beautiful from the expanse of the Grand Canal and is a symbol of Venice. On its steps facing the water, it is customary to be photographed for the memory. Many tourists eat here as well – of which the huge seagulls are well aware. Without hesitation snatching sandwiches and sandwiches out of the hands of the unwary.

Venice, Santa Maria della Salute, top view

Inside, baroque luxury multiplied by classical restraint, Titian and Tintoretto. Keep in mind that Santa Maria is closed for lunch; Italian customs allow for a midday siesta from 12 to 3 pm. So plan your day properly so you don’t “kiss” the closed door.

The central places of Venice end there. But we continue!

San Polo

The neighborhood is small and adjoins San Marco from the north. Visited by those who ventured from the train station on foot, as well as those looking for the brick church building of Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari (traveling by vaporetto to get off at San Toma) with the second oldest bell tower in Venice. Unlike San Marco, it has retained its originality, having survived a lightning strike – it is possible to climb to the top.

Titian is buried in the Frari, and his powerful Assunta, or Ascension of the Virgin Mary, adorns the altar.

Another landmark that can be conventionally attributed to San Polo is the Rialto Bridge. Much better looking from the outside! It is best viewed from the water, from the stern or bow open platforms of the vaporetto.

But the Rialto fish market, the oldest extant in Europe, belongs entirely to San Polo. Like the Scuola San Rocco, all painted from head to toe by Tintoretto. The entrance fee of €6 is highly recommended as a donation to the restoration and maintenance of the interiors and paintings.

Rialto Bridge, Venice

Castello

This neighborhood is poor on advertised places. There is, however, at least one – the church of Santi Giovanni e Paolo or San Zanipolo. The imposing and slightly Frari-like hulk, dating back to the fifteenth century, is the resting place of two dozen Doges of the Republic.

Islands

The Venetian Islands must be visited during any serious visit to the city on the water. In the first place are:

Murano, where an assortment of shops should be thoroughly explored. And buy glass knickknacks, which you will not find anywhere else (Chinese fakes do not count). And also just walk around, admiring the walls that have deteriorated over the centuries. And absorbing the incredibly original aura of the place.

Burano with colorful houses, which are begging to be shot. The island is famous for its lace, but other souvenirs in the local shops and begs to be picked up. Expensive, it’s true. But money is the last thing on your mind here.

Burano Canals and Bridges

The island of Torcello should be visited before dinner. By nightfall, the place dies out and vaporettos don’t move around very often.

Giudecca is an integral part of Venice. But it is often left in vain – and without it there is too much to see around. But to get here is simple – right from the station by the river streetcar number 2.

As you stroll through Judecca, you’ll see how nice it is when there aren’t many tourists around. You’ll also enjoy the regular layout of the streets and the abundance of air and space. Naturally, you’ll also enjoy the architecture of the houses-they’re exceptionally beautiful!

Lido, site of the Venice Film Festival and the center of sandy beaches, is pretty at any time of year. Tourist activity is low and that is a good reason to visit Venice.
