From the Santa Lucia train station or from Piazzale Roma, you should take Vaporetto # 2, the fastest way to get to San Marco.
Once on the most famous square in Venice, visiting the Basilica and the Doge's Palace will be a priority. Continue to the Accademia Bridge and the Accademia Gallery, the largest existing collection of Venetian art and well worth a visit.
At any time, take advantage of a lull in the flow of tourists to admire the Grand Canal.
The current economy of Venice is based primarily on tourism.
In addition to its architectural heritage, the city also promotes a cultural and artistic heritage such as the Venice Carnival and the International Film Festival, and thus attracts tourists throughout the year.
Venice is a unique city and will always surprise you every time you return.
If you want to escape the crowds of tourists, discover the islands of the lagoon: Just embark on the Vaporetto at Fondamente Nuove for the beautiful fishing village of Burano with its brightly painted houses.
Continue, and go to Torcello, this virtually uninhabited island houses the oldest monument of the lagoon: the imposing Basilica of Santa Maria Assunta.
