Venice is said to be an enchanting town. And I think it is, if you know where to look.
In my opinion, one should avoid the overcrowded Piazza San Marco, where hoards of tourists queue to get into the Basilica di San Marco or the Palazzo Ducale. I’d say the same for Ponte di Rialto, though the bridge itself it is a pretty sight.
What I love about Venice are the quiet waterways, the narrow back alleys, the deserted piazzas.
