Lying along a network of boroughs, the lagoon of Venice has not lost its erstwhile charm despite having embraced modernity with open arms.

The skyline of the city consists of turquoise house-tops amidst towering mansions, museums, monuments and exuberant Cathedrals. Touring Venice with our affordable car rental services will let you absorb the Venetian culture in style.
Pay a visit to the Basilica de San Marco while you are in the city. This sumptuous cathedral is the prime landmark in Venice and the most important church in the city. Its architecture is a unique collaboration of various styles from the Byzantine to the Greek to the Arabic to the Roman. The large mosaics are a major feature and cover about 40,000 metres, giving it a unique feel. Besides this, you have several Chapels and prayer services inside the Cathedral.
What served once as a watch tower for the maritime Grand Canal is now a beautiful tower – the Dogana da Mar – offers picturesque views of the San Marco and the Ducan palace. You can charter yachts or take a ferry across to the islands nearby and spend a day in by the sea. San Giorgio Maggiore is a wonderful island just a few minutes away from the Mar tower.
Comprising of two major landmarks in its vicinity, the Gothic Cathedral and the fabulous Renaissance-style Grade di San Marco mansion, the Campo Santi Giovanni is a huge city square in downtown Venice. When you are through with exploring the lovely buildings, stroll across the various palazzos, the cafes and promenades featuring lovely antiques for sale.
