Things not to miss in venice
Venice: historical city famous throughout the world for its monuments, its art and its majesty. Special place to live magical and unforgettable moments in an atmosphere that will amaze you.
Among "calli" and "campi" you can explore unique sights full of legends to be discovered or visit palaces and museums that will narrate thousands of years of stories and victories.
Here are the locations that the staff of Hotel San Zaccaria recommends to all its guests.
St. Mark's Square
The famous St. Mark's Square was a strategic meeting point between West and East. Here merchants from all over the world met to exchange goods and do business after long journeys. Today we find it represented in many paintings and it is recognizable at first glance, now as then. Unchanged over time but crossed by millions of people everyday,
The Doge's Palace stands in St. Mark's Square and is one of the most illustrious symbols of the city as well as a masterpiece of Venetian Gothic.
Entering the most important palace of the city is a must in order to learn about the history of the Serenissima, its traditions and visit the rooms of the Doge and his Council.
Picturesque icon of Venice, the Grand Canal divides the city into two parts connected by the Accademia Bridge, the famous Rialto Bridge, the Scalzi Bridge and the Constitution Bridge. Riding it by public transport or by gondola is one of the most evocative experiences that the city of Venice can offer.
Biennale di Venezia
The 59th. International Art Exhibition, "The Milk of Dreams" takes place from April 23 to November 27, 2022. The exhibition, developed between the central pavilion at the Giardini and the spaces of the Arsenale, is flanked by the 80 National Participations arranged between the historic pavilions and sundruy venues in town.
Peggy Guggenheim Museum
Overlooking the Grand Canal, the Peggy Guggenheim Museum is one of the most important museums of 20th-century European and American art in Italy. On display are works from Peggy Guggenheim's private collection, masterpieces from the Hannelore and Schulhof Collection, and an extensive sculpture garden and temporary exhibitions.
Scuola Grande di San Rocco
In 1478 Scuola Grande di San Rocco was founded as a lay confraternity around the figure of St. Rocco, the guardians of his relics since 1485. The building contains more than 60 paintings including the works of Tintoretto and his famous pictorial cycle with episodes from the Old and New Testament.
Basilica dei Frari
Located in the namesake Campo dei Frari, the Basilica of Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari is the largest of the Venetian churches. Designed in Venetian Gothic style, the Basilica houses several works of art inside, including paintings by Tiziano, the grave of Canova and paintings that narrate the history of Venice.
Probably the most famous bridge in Venice, the Rialto Bridge is the oldest of the bridges that cross the Grand Canal.
In addition to offering an evocative view of the Canal, it offers a unique atmosphere thanks to the possibility of admiring the Venice market held on the eastern side of the canal.
