If you want to surround yourself with traditional Italy, a visit to the Venetian Riviera isn't complete without a trip to Venice. Pack your day full of sight-seeing as you enjoy the city views from the Campanile di San Marco bell tower, gaze at the magnificent mosaics inside the Basilica di San Marco and admire the historical architecture of the Doge's Palace.
Evenings should be spent on the water with a gondola ride along the grand canal, there's nothing more romantic. Take in the sights of Baroque architecture and centuries-old buildings on this scenic ride as you glide through Venice's waterway with the twinkle from the stars in the sky and the serenading songs from your gondolier creating the perfect atmosphere. After your magical ride, be sure to stop off at one of the many restaurants on the waterfront. Enjoy a candle lit dinner of delicious Italian pasta washed down with a glass of the local Prosecco. This is one Italian tradition you won't forget in a hurry.
