Did you know that Venice has about 30 million tourists a year?

Venice travel is very popular because it's a beautiful city that seems to have it all-architecture, culture, cafes, and a one-of-a-kind experience in the gondolas. Since Venice has a lot to offer, it's no secret tourists keep flocking to this Italian city.

Read on for some of the best reasons to travel to Venice on your next vacation.

The Canals

Venice is one of the most popular places in the world sees tons of tourists passing through. The city is on the water, and canals separate the buildings.

Cars are very rare in Venice due to the narrow streets, so the best way to get around is by boat, gondolas, and walking. There are about 177 canals in total, so riding in gondolas is very popular with tourists and couples. With so many canals, spend some time reading up on which are best to take before you visit.

The Architecture

The architecture of Venice is unique and a must-see in every tourist's itinerary.

The architecture is admired by many, including a number of famous movie directors. Venice has been the setting for many great films such as Bread and Tulips, Dangerous Beauty, Summer Time, The Tourist, and Italian for Beginners.

Venice is full of colorful buildings with greenery on the attics and rooftops. Some of the famous landmarks include the Palazzo Contarini del Bovolo, St. Mark's Basilica, Ca'Pesaro, Punta Della Dogana, and Palazzo Fortuny.

Getting off the Grid

Venice is known to be a little complicated to get around. If you aren't on a guided tour, you will likely get lost at least once on your first visit. So be sure to wear comfortable shoes, and don't be nervous about exploring new things.

Walking is the best way to discover new and unexpected gems like restaurants, pubs, cafes, and more. Take time to stroll through the streets of the city, and don't be shy to ask for directions if you need them.

Cafes 

In Italy, and especially in Venice, everyone enjoys a nice cup of coffee and a delicious pastry alongside.

You will find the essence of Venice in a perfect cup of coffee. Venice has many popular coffee shops such as Adagio Caffe & Wine Bar, Torrefanizone Cannaregio, Caffe Del Doge, and Pasticceria Tonolo.

The Carnival 

The famous carnival became popular in the 18th century, and the beloved event still runs to this day. Venice's masquerade is one of the most famous carnivals in the world.

The carnival lasts a couple of weeks. People in all types of masks fill the streets, and some participate in mask competitions. They have parades and lots of other activities for everyone to enjoy all over the city.

Venice Travel

The next time you find yourself in the lovely city of Venice, don't forget to visit and admire the canals, architecture, and cafes. Spend a day at the Carnival and, most importantly, enjoy being off the grid and stepping into history.
