As soon as you arrive in Venice you will immediately realize how this city, unlike the others, throw you into a world without cars, smog and great roads. Here, losing yourself among the calli (the name of the Venetian streets) run along the canals and bridges, you will feel like you are absorbed in a parallel world, where industrialization leaves room for peace of mind.
We believe that if you spend at least one day in Venice, some things are absolutely to be seen or tested:
Venice aerial view: the panorama of Fondaco dei Tedeschi
Once you reach Fondaco dei Tedeschi, we suggest you climb up the panoramic terrace and enjoy the 360° view of the Grand Canal. The 15 minute visit is free, but given the large number of tourists you are asked to book online the time you prefer. Venice is always beautiful, but we suggest you to climb up at sunset, to enjoy the view away from the crowds of tourists.
