It’s one of the cities that appears on so many people’s bucket lists. Venice is built on more than 100 islands, and boats and canals take the place of cars and roads. Take a tour of St Marks Square, before heading into the labyrinth of tiny medieval streets to discover some of the city’s other highlights, including the Palazzo Ducal (Doge’s Palace), the enclosed white limestone Bridge of Sighs, and the Rialto Bridge, the oldest bridge across the Grand Canal. Just north of the city is a series of islands called Murano, famous for its glassmakers who can be observed practising their craft. No trip to Venice would be complete, of course, without a ride through the waterways and canals on a gondola.
