The first and the major tourist attraction to this city, OMG WHERE DID ALL THE ROADS GO? That’s because the city never had any roads, Damn how peaceful does that sound? No cars, no pollution, but how do people travel? To know that let's talk a bit about this country, VENICE- THE Capital of northern Italy Veneto Region built on more than 100 small islands in the Adriatic sea- The islands are wildly popular for Renaissance and Gothic palaces.
Apart from the fantastic view of the sunset, the group of islands is also famous for other stuff. In order to get to one of these islands find yourself a water bus that is operated by ACTV, the Venice public transportation company. Allow a day full for the entire excursion. Walk into Murano to see how glasses are made and exported around the world from that tiny Island, you could also visit one of the glass museums or walk into one of the historic churches to understand more about the origin of the island.

If you are visiting Venice then there are two ways for you to travel around the island, either walk or take Gondola. But personally, I feel Gondola is far more than that. Though if you decide to walk down the city you will be passing through alleyways not frequented by many tourists,… But taking Gondola’s would be a better option cause there are places that can’t be reached on foot. Online booking from various websites is available to hire or rent Gondolas. And photographers you are in for a treat if you take Gondola’s cause you get to see the filmy views quaint and picturesque buildings near the Grand canals. And honeymooners or planning to propose to your loved one? I really can't think of a better place than a Gondola- Its time to be extra romantic to your special one isn’t? Might as well be different and unique with the proposal- you might not be doing it again.
