Venice is a mix of more than 120 small islands connected with countless bridges. Today Venice is home to roughly 270.000 people. It is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Italy and one of most important cities of middle ages and renaissance.
If you are planning a trip to Venice it is good to know main areas. Venice consists of 6 historical districts ( sestieri in italian).
- San Marco
- San Polo
- Santa Croce
My favorite district is Dorsoduro. Dorsoduro covers south part of Venice including Giudecca island. Dorsoduro is also home to some of the most visited attractions in Venice.
Probably the most important museum in Venice with masterpieces of: Paolo Veronese, Tintoretto, Piero della Francesca, Giorgione, Andrea Mantegna and Titian.
Impressive modern art museum located inside restored ols customs building.
One of the last remaining gondola boatyards.
