Doge's Palace

Layer upon layer of differing architectural styles come together to form the magnificent Doge's Palace. A symbol of the Venetian government and political heritage, the historic palace was once the seat of the Doge, the chief magistrate of the former Republic of Venice. The foundations of the complex were laid during the 14th Century. Through the years, the palace was repeatedly reconstructed, extended and restored, creating a mix of artistic and architectural styles ranging from the Medieval to the Renaissance. A masterpiece of Gothic design, the palace is replete with exquisite details like sculptures, frescoes, arches and graceful columns. The original Doge's Apartments, the Armory, the Prisons, the Courtyard and Loggias have all been beautifully restored, with numerous hidden treasures around every corner. This historic icon also houses the Museo dell'Opera and its extensive art collection.

Teatro La Fenice

Established in 1792, Teatro La Fenice is regarded as one of the most respected venues in the history of Italian theater. Destroyed by fire three times, the theater was rebuilt, because of which it was named Teatro La Fenice (The Phoenix). Originally built by Gianantonio Selva, the later iterations were constructed by Tommaso and Giovanni Battista Meduna (1837) and Aldo Rossi (2003). Equipped with great acoustics, this premier opera house is among the best venues in town to watch superb opera performances, chamber music concerts, and ballets.

Ca' Rezzonico

Standing proudly on the Grand Canal, Ca' Rezzonico is the final architectural design attributed to the famed Baroque architect Baldassare Longhena. Today, it's a museum dedicated to 18th-century Venice, showcasing a meticulously reconstructed interior filled with original and restored furnishings. The Venetian Rococo décor is particularly splendid in the ballroom, featuring a stunning trompe l'oeil ceiling, and the nuptial room, boasting richly decorated dressing tables. Artworks by Tiepolo, Guardi, Canaletto, and Longhi adorn the walls, offering a glimpse into the artistic richness of the period.

Grand Canal

The Grand Canal carves a path through the heart of Venice and serves as the city's main thoroughfare. While water taxis and water buses operate on the waters, the canal winds its way through the center of the city, terminating at the lagoon at one end and the basin, at San Marco square, at the other. Along the way, the jade waters flow past historic structures and sprawling squares, alive with the call of the gondoliers. From the Medieval, Byzantine and Gothic to the Renaissance, Baroque and Neoclassical, the structures that line the Grand Canal form a chronicle of sorts of the city's architectural change across the ages. Romanticized by numerous movies and novels, a gondola ride down the Grand Canal is an essential Venetian experience.

Basilica of Saint Anthony of Padua

The Pontifical Basilica of Saint Anthony of Padua is a revered Catholic church in Padua, Italy. Dedicated to Saint Anthony, a renowned Franciscan friar, the Basilica serves as a pilgrimage destination for millions worldwide. Construction began in 1232, shortly after Saint Anthony's death, and was completed by 1310. The Basilica's architecture blends Romanesque, Byzantine, and Gothic styles. Inside the tomb of Saint Anthony, you can find a collection of frescoes that are truly worth admiring. This church is a must-visit for history as well as art lovers.

Galleria Giorgio Franchetti alla Ca’ d’Oro

The Ca' d'Oro is a beautiful Gothic structure that served as a home to a highly influential family in the 15th century. Built for the Contarini family, the structure is called the Palazzo Santa Sofia and more casually got the name Ca' d'Oro, which means ‘golden house’ or ‘house of gold’, because of the chrome decoration and gold inlays on the exterior. Giovanni Bon and Bartolomeo Bon, his son, were the architects on the job as well as the sculptors and they created a beautiful Gothic structure that is still talked about because of its style. Through the years, a few private owners destroyed some of the original structure. Then when Baron Giorgio Franchetti became the owner, he restored what was destroyed and now it is almost as good as it was when the original architects made it. The house is now restored and is open to the public. It is now known as the Gallery Giorgio Franchetti alla Ca’ d’Oro. It houses the Baron’s personal art collection, and also showcases the original furniture and decor.
