  • Ca' Pesaro – International Gallery of Modern Art - Art Gallery in Venice.
    Apr 1, 2013 Great Art in a Great City "Venice is a city renowned for its art and culture, which means that a trip to the former republic wouldn't be complete without viewing one of its many great art museums. One of the best is the Ca' Pesaro, a once-magnificent Baroque palace off the Grand Canal. While it has enjoyed time as both a residence and university, it is now famous for its magnificent art collection. With masterpieces by Gustav Klimt, Marc Chagall and Henri Matisse, among other fine art works, this collection provides a captivating look at painting over the centuries. You have the chance to see how the art form has evolved over the years and see the work of many great artists, from the time of the Renaissance all the way through the 20th century. Whether you're an art expert or don't know must about the masters, you will marvel at the dazzling array presented at the Ca' Pesaro. This museum is a must see during your time in Venice. Aside from its fine collection, it also offers beautiful views of the Grand Canal from its cafe and terrace. " hide

    Piazza San Marco - Landmark | Shopping Area | Square in Venice.
    Apr 1, 2013 Half Fairy Tale, Half Tourist Trap "The Piazza San Marco is one of the most popular spots in Venice, and it's not hard to see why. Home to St. Mark's Basilica, the Doge's Palace, the Correr Museum and a smattering of restaurants and shops, the piazza is a testament to the grand empire Venice once was. However, with the great amount of tourists that visit the city every year, this spot can become overcrowded and overwhelming. It is best to visit the piazza in the early morning, before 8 a.m., so you can see it in all its glory. Without the tourists, you'll have the opportunity to take in the beautiful details of the buildings, from the winged lions scattered across the square to the way the morning light bounces off the gold mosaics of the basilica. You'll also be able to be first in line to tour the amazing gold-encrusted cathedral, a proud example of Venetian Gothic architecture and the decadence Venice once enjoyed. I also recommend climbing to the top of the campanile to get a view of Venice that you won't get anywhere else. After touring the historical buildings, you can grab an espresso at one of the cafes and then hop on a gondola for a unique tour of the rest of the city. Piazza San Marco is the best place to start a day in Venice, and it is also a great place to end it. When night falls, return to this spot to enjoy the beautiful music of the restaurant bands and the romantic glow of the lights. After a busy day, the mellow romance of the square will remind you why Venice is considered one of the most romantic cities in the world. " hide
