Cruises From Venice

The magic and wonderment of Venice cannot be explained. A city built upon canals, where cars are not allowed, seems like something out of a history book. A gondola ride through the canals under the beautiful bridges that span the waterways is the perfect way to get in the city’s romantic mood. Venice is more than just its waterways though. It has wonderful artwork, stunning architecture and a long history of producing fine products like glass and lace. But we recommend that you cruise to Venice and discover this powerhouse of a city soon, as with each passing year the city sinks between 2 and 10 millimeters. Featured below are a few of our favorite experiences for the cruise port of Venice, Italy:

  • The Basilica de San Marco is a grand church decorated with inspiration from buildings in Constantinople. The church is just as stunning from the inside where it is decorated with byzantine mosaics and the Pala d’Oro, an altarpiece adorned with gems and enameled panels.
     
  • Hop on a vaporetto, or waterbus, to cruise the Grand Canal and take in the views of the various buildings, many built between the 14th and 18th centuries.
     
  • Visit the Jewish Ghetto of Venice, which was the first known instance of a ghetto. Here Jewish culture and people still thrive and cruisers are encouraged to take a tour to learn about the customs of the area.
     
  • Check out the art collection of Peggy Guggenheim who became friends with artists like Jackson Pollock and Max Ernst, who she later married. The collection is housed in her former home, the Palazzo Venier dei Leoni.
     
  • Check out a “furnace” or open workshop in Murano to check out glass blowers in action. You’ll also have plenty of opportunity to buy locally blown glass on the island.
