Torre dell'Orologio

Historic landmarks come a dime a dozen in Venice, but Torre dell'Orologio (clock tower) is a bit more legendary than most. Centrally located at the entrance to one of the city's oldest marketplaces, the looming structure has stood watch over generations and generations of busy Venetians. By appointment only, visitors can enter the hulking monolith, ascend its stairways, to learn about the complex inner workings of the ancient clock and take in some astounding views of the neighborhood below.

Campanile di San Marco

You get a splendid view of Venice and the Basilica di San Marco from the tallest bell tower in Venice. It can be seen from the laguna and once you have reached the top, the whole laguna can be seen from above. Even though the Basilica di San Marco-Campanile was erected at the beginning of the 20th Century, it is an exact replica of the 15th-century bell tower. In 1609, Galileo Galilei exhibited his telescope here, and during the Carnevale, it was used to serve as a stage for the tight rope-walkers who entertained the doge with their acrobatics.

Pont des Soupirs

Ce pont baroque fut conçu au début du XVIIe siècle par l’architecte italien Antonio Contino. Construit au-dessus du Rio di Palazzo pour relier le palais des Doges et la Nouvelle prison, il servait à l’origine de passage pour les tristes condamnés entre leur jugement et leur incarcération. Bien que de nombreuses personnes attribuent le nom de ce pont à sa popularité en tant que lieu de rendez-vous pour les amoureux, d’autres pensent qu’il est lié aux soupirs des prisonniers qui profitaient de leurs derniers moments de liberté. Ce monument vénitien incontournable est particulièrement apprécié par les touristes.

Pont du Rialto

S’élevant au-dessus du Grand Canal, le pont du Rialto était autrefois le seul moyen de le traverser à pied. Ses majestueuses arcades domine les eaux troubles du canal de façon spectaculaires, permettant aux gondoles et aux bateaux-bus de glisser en-dessous. Le pont du Rialto fut construit en un temps record, entre 1588 et 1591, remplaçant ses prédécesseurs du XIIe siècle. Conçu par Antonio da Ponte, il constitue un véritable triomphe puisqu’il est resté intact depuis plus de quatre siècles. Aujourd’hui, le Rialto est l’un des quatre ponts qui traversent le Grand Canal, mais il demeure le plus important. Il abrite de petites boutiques vendant toutes sortes de souvenirs et de curiosités, tandis que le Mercato di Rialto est un marché local populaire situé à proximité.

Ponte dell'Accademia

Venice has only four bridges that traverse the famous Grand Canal. Ponte dell'Accademia is one of them connecting the neighborhoods of San Marco and Dorsoduro. It was originally built in 1854 and reconstructed twice to form the present structure. Though the bridge itself is not too great to look at, it affords magnificent views of gondolas and water taxis sailing through the Grand Canal and the play of sunlight creating myriad shadows on the surrounding red Venetian buildings. It is also a romantic spot and a popular destination with couples who wait to watch the awe-inspiring sunsets. Despite it being illegal, many couples attach talismans and love locks to the metallic rails of Ponte dell'Accademia as a symbol of eternal love.

Scuola Grande di San Rocco

Scuola Grande di San Rocco, a stunning building was built during the Renaissance period but displays traces of successive interventions up until the Baroque period. Scuola Grande di San Rocco is often used as a concert hall, and is next to the San Rocco Church with which it is often mistaken. It is dedicated to Rocco, who cured the sick during the 14th-century plague. The interior decoration of the school was entrusted to Jacopo Tintoretto, whose works, such as the Allegories, Life and Passion of Christ, and episodes from the Old and New Testaments can be admired. Among the most famous displays are The Annuciation, The Epiphany, and The Flight to Egypt. It is open throughout the year except for a few occasions.
