Visit Venice: a small guide for our guests

Visit Venice starting from Hotel Galleria

Venice is plenty of richness to see, museums to visit, historical sites to live for the intensive emotion transmitted to tourists.
It’s a city where walking through narrows and “calli” and “fondamenta” gives incomparable awesomeness. It would be difficult to give a proper guide to tourists that will find a large variety of choices to satisfy their wishes.

Neverthless we decide to give our guests some suggestions to visit Venice, taking our hotel, that could be consider in the very center of the city, as a starting point.
