Piazza di San Marco
Known in English as St Mark’s Square, this is the city’s major tourist hub. At the city’s heart, the square has long been an important meeting place for citizens. It can be unbearably crowded, but if you visit early morning or in the evening, when day visitors have left, you may experience it in solitude.
On the eastern side of St Mark’s Square, the palace is a grand example of Venetian gothic architecture. Once the political and judicial hub of Venice, it now stands as a symbol of power and one of city’s most iconic buildings. It also houses paintings of many great Italian artists.
Basilica di San Marco
This remarkable religious landmark became Venice’s cathedral in 1807. It stuns with luminous gold mosaics, marble floors and an exquisite collection of Byzantine art.

Things to note
This city is all canals, there are no roads. No motorized vehicles, not even bikes or scooters, are allowed in the city, only boats. Don’t be a bad tourist and try to drive down the Grand Canal as a pair did in 2016, you’ll not only upset the locals, but the chances are you’ll incur a fine as well.
There are loads of driveable places to see outside the lagoon. Whether you’re day tripping from the city or starting a week long Italian road trip, Venice is a beautiful place to start. Note that parking on the edge of the city, at the Piazzale Roma – a public square – is expensive. Pick up your rental only when needed to save money.
Vicenza was once an ancient Roman city and today, generates a great deal of Italy’s wealth through the production of gold and jewellery. It is, however, the 16th century architect, Andrea Palladio, who established Vicenza as a city of grandeur and elegance.
Regarded as the “City of Palladio” by UNESCO, Palladio’s influence and legacy is built into the foundations of the city. The father of Renaissance architecture, his style was sophisticated yet simple, crafted after Roman and Greek designs. There are 23 different Palladian Villas within Vicenza, the most famous possibly being Villa La Rotonda.
La Rotonda, as well as numerous other alluring villas, are located just outside the compact city centre and are easiest to reach by car. Vicenza itself is less than an hour’s drive from Venice.
