Introduction to Venice

Introduction to Venice

Welcome to the real Venice.
 
Here you will find everything you need to know to explore Venice and the islands of the lagoon, how to discover the true soul of the city and to experience Venice as the Venetians do, wandering away from the well-trodden tourist routes to see the city through the eyes of the people who live there, to savour it slowly and discover its most authentic and out-of-the-way locations.
The best way to explore Venice is to get lost in the secret meanders of the city, far from the itineraries of mass tourism, to discover the Venice you weren’t expecting: : the DETOURISM section offers travel tips for curious visitors who prefer to get off the beaten path, and suggests what to see and where to go in Venice to get a more local look at the city.
Do you love Venice?
Then take our advice and enjoy a slow, eco-friendly and sustainable visit to Venice and its lagoon.
 You will also find suggestions and information about the main museums and monuments, what to do and where to go in Venice, and helpful ideas for activities and tours conceived especially for children, as well as useful telephone numbers to ensure a safe trip.
