Sights and sounds of Venice - things to do during your 'time at leisure'

Take a stroll... that might sounds daft, but most thing in Venice are within walking distance - and one of our favourite things is just getting lost in this magnificent city. Whilst lost in the maze of canal-side streets, you'll see the beating heart of the city and undoubtedly you will also come across its treasures - from St Marks Square, the Bridge of Sighs, and the Doges Palace to little 'streets' with brightly painted houses (and fabulous window boxes during late spring/early summer).

Alternatively, do the 'tourist thing' and treat yourselves to a Gondola tour. Other attractions (mostly free or low cost entry) are well worth the queues that inevitably build up during busy periods.  Examples include the 342ft St Mark’s Campanile (bell tower) at around €8 per person, and the Basililica Di San Marco, where entry is free but there is a small charge for the museum.
