How to get there & what to do
Who has never dreamt of wandering in Venice from canal to canal, on its bridges and narrow streets?
Take a morning walk on St. Mark’s square to visit the basilica and the Doge’s palace. Did you know that the Doge’s palace housed a prison under its roofs and that no one has ever escaped except of Casanova?
The view on San Giorgo Island from your room at Metropole hotel will certainly make you want to explore the multiple treasures of the region. Discover the glass-blowers of Murano, the colorful Burano or the garden island of Certosa… each of those islands is unique and is easy to access by vaporetto boats.
The day nearing to its end, why not go to the opera? The “Teatro La Fenice”is a very old building that is still used as a theater stage. The building was burnt to ground several times across the centuries but like a phoenix, (La Fenice), it is always reborn. Be warned! It is located at one of the lowest altitudes in Venice, so take your boots if the tides are expected to go as high as 100 cm!
