Gondola ride in Venice
The view from inside a gondola, about to go underneath the Scalzi Bridge. One of the must-do things in Venice for all romantics, although very expensive! The price has risen over the years, so check the Institute of the Gondola website for latest fares, currently standing at €80.

Doges Palace
Doge’s Palace. Originally the official residence of the Doge of Venice, but now a stunning palace museum open to the public.

Nobody around in what seems like a ghost town
At night, if you stay away from the main tourist trails, the streets are a lot quieter, some even resemble an eerie ghost town.

We definitely advise spending some time exploring the inner streets, putting your map away and getting yourself completely lost. It will be one of your most surreal but enjoyable experiences!
