Venice Hotel guide

Venice is a prominent city which is the capital of Veneto, which is part of a province located in Italy. Next to Rome and Milan, Venice is one of the most well known cities in the country. It has a population of just over 270,000 people, and is a historical center of Italy. For nearly a thousand years Venice was one of the most powerful seaport cities in the world. Today much its glory and brilliance have subsided, but those who choose to take a closer glance at the city will be able to see its beauty.

The city was founded in the year 568 by Lombard's who invaded Italy from the north. The city was considered to be subject to the Byzantine Empire for quite some time, but eventually gained its independence and became a city state. Venice would go on to become a large sea power and the center of the spice trade and the Renaissance. Virtually all seasons are great times to visit the city, but Venice reaches its busiest point during the spring.

During the holiday season you may find it difficult to get accommodations. The summer is a terrible time to visit, unless you like very hot weather and large crowds. There are many things to see in Venice, and you will want to take your time. The labyrinth of canals and tunnels will dazzle you.

Those interested in Gothic style art will want to visit the Ca' d'Oro, a galleria which houses excellent pieces of Gothic art from the 15th century, which includes works from the master Titian. For people who enjoy swimming, Venice ironically has only a few good places. If you enjoy jogging, you will want to go to the Isola di Sant'Elena. When it comes to rowing, you can get more than you imagine in a city which is full of canals. Venice has quite a few festivals and celebrations which may interest visitors.

Liberation Day is a holiday which takes place near the end of April. The Feast of the Immaculate Conception is held near the end of December. When eating in Venice you can expect to have a wide selection of seafood to choose from. Many restaurants serve only seafood dishes.

If you are looking for places, which serve dishes with more meat, you will have to travel farther inland. Like other major Italian cities, Venice can be a bit costly. You are not expected to give tips beyond what you pay in service charges. If you don't have to pay service charges, you may want to leave a small tip if the service was good. .
