What kind of things to do in Venice?
In Venice there are lot of gondolas: narrow, black boats with gold, ornate decorations. It is a traditional mode of transport in Venice since the 11th century.

Ponte dei Sospiri or Bridge of Sighs
One of the things to do is the famous bridge which connects the Doge’s palace to the Dungeons, called this way because the prisoners, looking through a little opening on the bridge, used to sigh seeing Venice for the last time on their way to their cell.
St. Mark’s Square
St. Mark’s Square (Piazza San Marco) is Venice on parade, where everyone comes to see and be seen. It is Venice’s only square with the title of “piazza” – the rest are called “campo.” Life has revolved around this piazza since the days of the Republic, when it was a market as well as the center of civic and religious life. Considered one of the finest squares in the world and certainly Venice’s prime attraction, it is surrounded on three sides by the stately arcades of public buildings and on the fourth, by Basilica di San Marco’s riot of domes and arches and the soaring St. Mark’s campanile.
