Welcome to Venice, the Venetiansoul's words for everyone who arrives in the city.

Updated: Jul 27, 2021

Welcome to Venice, the real one.

Even those who have never set foot there, know the places that make the city of Venice famous all over the world: Piazza San Marco, the Rialto bridge, the Grand Canal. But Venice is also something else.

There are entire areas of the historic city to be explored, far from the places obliged by tradition, where every corner hides wonders. Going off the beaten track, you will be lucky enough to look at the city from a less conventional, more intimate, authentic and original point of view.

The best way to get to know the hidden soul of Venice, in fact, is to get lost in the streets and fields, explore the city slowly, preferably aboard a traditional boat or on foot, and look at it with the eyes of those who live there, maybe entering one of the many artisan shops to discover the stories of the authentic Made in Venice, such as gondolas, glass, pearls, lace, typical sweets and fabrics. But not only that: Venice is part of a real archipelago of islands, each with a unique beauty, even the lesser known, such as Torcello, Sant'Erasmo, Mazzorbo, Lazzaretto Nuovo, Certosa, Vignole, Pellestrina, and many others.

You can go to the discovery of these small islands with quiet walks in the villages, visit unusual museums and take archaeological itineraries that tell of the origins of the Serenissima and its ancient history, or take short bike excursions ideal also for families with children. For example, in the Lido of Venice and Pellestrina, in addition to the beaches, there are also splendid protected natural areas that extend for tens of hectares, between the sea and the lagoon, a true paradise for birdwatchers and days in the open air.

The Venice of the mainland - Mestre and Forte Marghera - can reserve beautiful discoveries, such as the woods and green parks that can be visited with urban trekking itineraries, cycle paths and bridleways. Even a visit to one of the ancient forts defending the city is an experience not to be missed to discover an unprecedented Venice, along a widespread route between the mainland and the islands of the lagoon, of extraordinary archaeological, architectural and naturalistic interest.
