Venice survived many wars of succession and territorial changes throughout history. Despite this, Venice has been an influential artistic and cultural centre in Europe. The city has many museums, most notably, the Academia, which houses works by Titian, Leonardo da Vinci, and many more famous Italian artists. St. Mark's Square, located at the mouth of the Grand Canal, is the central piazza in Venice and many grand hotels of Venice are close by. St. Mark's Basilica, the Doge's Palace, St. Mark's clock tower, and numerous open-air cafés occupy St. Mark's Square. Explore the main islands such as Murano, Burano and Torcello. Murano Island is home to the famous glass makers of Venice. You can watch the artisans crafting beautiful creations in glass. The Lace Museum on Burano is amazing, and definitely a must-see. The open air markets near the Rialto Bridge are a great way for you to experience the Italian street markets, and maybe you will even find a great deal on some fish at the Pescheria.
