Preparing your trip to Venice: advices & hints - things to do and to obey

Ponte di Rialto 1. Tourists are recommended to travel the city on foot as this is the best way to explore all major attractions of Venice. The channels are full of small boats, which are more like public transport in the city. A ride on a gondola or a cutter will surely bring a lot of fun.
2. It’s recommended to leave tips in local cafes and restaurants. As a rule, tips make up approximately 10% of the total bill. An exception is permitted only in case tips are already included in the total bill.
3. St. Mark's Square remains one of the most favorite pastimes for tourists as walking there is really entertaining. Please remember that pigeons on the square can be fed only by the specially purchased food. The food contains special substances which regulate the growth of the pigeon population. This way the city’s government takes care of Venice’s purity.
4. Make sure you select clothes carefully prior to visiting religious sites. Revealing and very bright clothing is prohibited in many churches and so you may be prohibited to enter.
5. The majority of shops and government institutions are closed during the lunch time. Copyright www.orangesmile.com

Ponte di Rialto

From the series “Unbelievable and magnificent bridges and viaducts”
The real landmark Venice is the wonderful Rialto - the oldest and one of the most beautiful bridges of the city. The stone bridge connects the banks of the Great Channel and was built in 1591. Originally, the bridge was intended not only to cross the canal, but also to serve as a place for commercial tents. That is why great value was placed on their exterior design. The length of the old bridge is 28 meters. Rialto rises to 7.5 meters above the water surface. … Read further
