Is there anything else to see in Venice besides Piazza San Marco and the Rialto Bridge? Of course there is. There’s more in Venice than postcards. It is no coincidence that the entire city and lagoon have been designated as UNESCO World Heritage sites. If a tourist tries to find a lesser-known Venice and travels less obvious itineraries of the route that leads from the Calatrava Bridge, passes by the Guglie Bridge, and continues along Strada Nuova towards Rialto, San Marco, and up to Riva degli Schiavoni, not only would they earn, but the crowds that cause overtourism, the tourist overcrowding that frequently clogs the city, would be avoided. The first and most basic tip for enjoying Venice is to broaden your horizons and itineraries, at least as far as the Ormesini, Sensa, Sant’Alvise, Castello, or Giudecca. It’s worth walking around Venice after 11 p.m., when it suddenly becomes empty. When we visit the lagoon islands, we can see not only Murano and Burano, but also San Michele, Le Vignole, and Sant’Erasmo. Above all, Venice is more than just the Carnival; it is also fascinating “out of season” or when it hosts one of its many world-class cultural events. Find some tips in the videos of this web series, which takes you away from the more touristy parts of Venice in search of its (unexpected) agricultural vocation!
