There are many great things to do in Venice. Here are some of my favorites:
Theater Phoenix was built in the years 1790-92 by the noble neoclassical architect Company, Gianantonio Selva. The timing of completion was reduced but that does not dilute the groups’ arguments against the new theater, which points to their criticism about its location.
It brings bad luck stones
During the long history of Venice, they were born many legends about the city and its most peculiar places. Some have originated from real events, while others are the fruit of the imagination of the Venetians.
Great school of St. Rocco
Those who do not stop at least once in Campo San Rocco, to listen to the opera singer, or musician on duty, performing right in the entrance of the Church side, are missing out. And maybe you would like to just sit on the steps of the Great School to rest your legs, after a day spent in the lanes and squares, because basically that’s the beauty of Venice?
The Jewish ghetto
The word ghetto, unhappily known around the world, has Venetian origins. Born right here in the sixteenth century, the first isolation of the Jews whose name seems to have originated from the presence in the area of ancient public foundries where casting (ie blended) bombards. The word Venetian Geto, probably because of the ruling influenced German accent, gave rise to the word ghetto.
The salt has always been, for a man, a necessary product; indispensable both for feeding and for the preservation of food. Already in prehistoric times the first salt mines were exploited, such Hallstatt or at Hallein near Salzburg, but since ancient times to produce salt, were used mainly for saline, and growing special plants built in coastal waters.
The Grand Canal is the main waterway that runs through Venice, splitting it in two. The Grand Canal, which the Venetians call the “Grand Canal” and Philippe de Commynes has called “the most beautiful and best-built road that exists in the world”, the palazzi, churches and the most beautiful buildings in the city.
As with the rest of Italy, Venice has some amazing shopping. Everything from blown glass through to beautiful paintings, are available for purchase.

Bridge of the constitution
The Constitution Bridge was opened on 11 September 2008. After the sixteenth century Rialto Bridge, the Scalzi bridge and the Accademia, which date back to the 1930s, the Constitution Bridge is a ilquarto bridge over the Grand Canal, which connects the Venice Saint Lucia railway station with Piazzale Roma.
The Rialto Bridge, which offers one of the most beautiful prospects of the Grand Canal, is the oldest and most famous bridge in Venice. It has now become one of the architectural symbols of the city. Along with the Accademia Bridge and the Scalzi Bridge, it is one of three bridges that cross the Grand Canal and up to 800 the only link between the two parts of the city.
The Accademia Bridge is one of the four bridges, together with the Ponte di Rialto, the Scalzi Bridge and the new Calatrava bridge, linking the two banks of the Grand Canal.
The barefoot bridge
The Scalzi Bridge, which the Venetians call it the railway bridge and the railway, for its proximity to the train station of Saint Lucia, was built in 1934 by engineer Eugenio Mozzi.
