Thanks to its long history and its peculiar urban shape, the city of Venice
offers a full range of activities catering to different travellers
, from those who are seeking a relaxing day at the lido, to those looking for sites of historical interest and those who fancy a spot of retail therapy! Rialto Bridge and Markets
Built between 1588 and 1591, the Rialto bridge crosses the Grand Canal in the heart of Venice's shopping area.
Jewellery and souvenir shops line the sides of this famous bridge. Nearby lies the picturesque Rialto fish and vegetable markets, selling fresh and locally grown produce.
Teatro La Fenice
Destroyed by fire in 1996, the Fenice Opera House reopened in 2003, beautifully restored to its former glory.
This historic theatre is one of the greatest Italian temples of bel canto, attracting national and international audiences. La Fenice Opera House hosts a rich programme of events, including opera, classical ballet, symphony and theatre.
