Why discover Venice on foot

In Venice there are no cars so the only ways to get around the city are by boat or long walks.

Visiting Venice on foot, however, is the only way that will allow you to really enjoy the city: only in this way you can slip into hidden streets and get away from the usual itineraries already written and too beaten.

Walking through the Lagoon City you will enjoy the views between the houses, admire the reflections of its canals and see some gondolas in the distance.

To visit this city in a complete way you will need at least 3 days, in this way, after having visited the most famous attractions, you can let yourself go to explore the less known and less beaten by tourists.

During your 3 days in Venice, moreover, you cannot miss an evening walk. In the evening, Venice changes its look, it becomes even more fascinating and magical and the daily bustle seems like a distant memory. It is with the darkness that you will have the best walks!
