Weekend Getaway to Venice and Verona

by Sayali Goyal

ITALY
ROMANCE

From the city of Milan, a train ride away lays Venice and Verona. Here is a checklist of things to do in Venice Italy:

1. See three major sights in one square

Standing in the middle of the magnificent piazza San Marco is an experience in itself with Basilica Di San Marco, Doge’s Palace and a clock tower built in the 15th century.

2. Get around in a gondola

Waterways in an iconic gondola is a must do among all Venice tourist attractions . It gives you a glimpse of the city in a one round as well as plenty of opportunities to take pictures of things to do in Venice Italy!

3. Tour the Venetian masters of art

Venice is a unique and precious repository of art. From the late middle Ages until the mid 18th century, artists of the highest calibre left their mark all over the city. Venice Italy attractions during the Venice biennale is an experience of a lifetime for an art lover.

4. Granitas and Gelatos

In summers this would be quite handy, as Venice can get very hot and humid. At Alaska Gelateria-Sorbetteria, passionate ice-cream makers experiment with new flavours using only the freshest natural ingredients. Hazelnut or yoghurt are my favourites and exotic flavours, such as artichoke, fennel, asparagus or ginger are available too.

5. Shakespeare inspired day out

Head out of town on a quick break to Verona, known for the courtyard and balcony of Juliet. It is a small town with the cutest houses and small lanes. Visitors leave their entwined signatures on graffiti-covered walls of Juliet’s home and pick souvenirs from the boutique shop. don't forget to include this beautiful little paradise in your Venice tours.
