Venice Pocket Guide: Travel there like the Stars!

Venice Pocket Guide: Travel there like the Stars!

Venice, so romantic and so full of charm, has always been a destination loved by celebrities of yesterday and today.

During the Film Festival, the city on the lagoon is the catwalk of international stars and Hollywood icons.

How can we forget the splendid images of Paul Newman in a tuxedo suit while enjoying the beauty of Venice?

Definitely, at least once in your life you should go to Venice and see its picturesque beauty live.

If you are planning a trip to the beautiful Italian city on the lagoon, we at STK have prepared, a pocket guide just for you!

The Italian version of happy hour is the Bacaro-Tour; in the evenings, people go from bar to bar, drinking wine or spritz and eating different little bites of food.
Cicchetti bars are the best places to eat and drink like a local!

Our favorite is Osteria al squero, Venetians' favorite place for a perfect aperitif!

Stroll to the Rialto Bridge and visit the Market: The markets in Italy are really fabulous and that of Rialto is really very characteristic.

Have coffee at St. Mark's Square and visit the Crypt and the bell tower, but watch out for pigeons! St. Mark's Square is really famous for the presence of pigeons that are real stars, photographed every day by many tourists.

If you have enough time, organize a trip to the islands in front of Venice: Murano and Burano.

Burano is a colorful town and you'll get lost in its narrow streets of houses painted with pastel colors.

Murano, on the other hand, is famous worldwide for glass making.
You can visit a glass factory and even buy a unique handmade piece.
