WALKING VENICE

Venice is built on 117 small islands and boats, 150 canals and 409 bridges. A highly pleasurable way to get your bearings and to take in the incredible majesty of the city's buildings is to take a vaporetto (small ferry) down the Canal Grande.  You will pass more than a hundred impressive mansions along the way dating from the 12th to the 18th centuries including the Fondaco dei Turchi, the Ca' Pesaro and the Ca' d'Oro - the city's most beautiful Gothic building. The elegant Piazza San Marco boasts a campanile from which you get stunning views of the city.  The Basilica di San Marco is one of the most magnificent cathedrals in Europe. Modelled on Costantinople's Church of the Twelve Apostles was completed in 1094.  When you've exhausted Venice's beautiful churches and palaces, stop in one of the city's cheerful osterie (restaurants) tucked away in forgotten little corners. Sample some tiramisu - the rich dessert of mascarpone cheese, Marsala, sponge and chocolate - which was invented here. Visit also the Palazzo del Cinema where Venice's international film festival is held each September
