Explore Venice By Foot

If you’ve never been there, it’s likely that you’ve heard of it. After all, Venice has been
the subject of many a travel blog post, and even some famous films (like the 1953 classic
The Lady and the Mermaid, which is set in and around Venice).

Aside from being a gorgeous city, with its architecture and waterways, there are lots of places
to explore on foot – something you can’t do if you’re relying on public transport. The most notable
of these locations are the Doge’s Palace and the Palazzo Ducale (the “main” palace, not the one
used in the film La Dolce Vita).

You can easily reach these spots thanks to the city’s extensive public transport network: the
Aerobus (for the Doge’s Palace) and the Venice Bus (for the Palazzo Ducale). If you’re looking for
a day trip, why not visit the Museo Correr (the Correr Collection of Oldmaster Paintings) –
it’s free and it’s definitely a sight to see?!

Visit The Museums

For the ultimate cultural experience, you could visit the Musei (Museums) – there are lots of

You can start your exploration of Venetian culture at the Maritime Museum, where you can
find exhibits on shipbuilding and seafaring throughout history. A little further afield, you could
visit the Punta della Dogana, which is a contemporary art museum housed in a former customs
building. It was designed by the British architect Tadaoki Doi and features an outdoor sculpture
garden designed by Zaha Hadid.

From there, you can walk to the Museo Ebraico, where you can get a peek at everyday life in
the Middle East during the Middle Ages. Of course, if you’re a real history buff, you could visit the
Villa Barbaro, which was the home of mathematician, philosopher, and scientist Luca Pacioli
from 1447 to 1494. It’s now a museum dedicated to him.

Take In a Comedy Film At the Cinema

If you’re looking for a laugh, you could always head to a cinema and watch a film. There are several
theaters in Venice, with the popular Palais Omnisports being the best option for an evening out.
Aside from cinema, you could check out some of Venice’s many Live Music Venues, like Fabrizio
Matteo’s Palazzo Malcontento or the Feux Follets (French Follets is another French-run venue,
offering up-and-coming and established artists).

You could also visit the Venice Film Festival, which is one of the most celebrated film
festivals in the world. It was founded in 1932 and screens both established and up-and-coming
filmmakers. The city’s annual Carnevale celebrations (a pre-Lenten festival that runs for five days
before Ash Wednesday) is another event not to be missed – it’s celebrated across Italy but is
primarily in Venice. If you’re not into crowds, then you could always stay away during that time!
