The Lido di Venezia is also a popular international luxury destination, attracting thousands of actors, critics, celebrities, and mainly people in the cinematic industry. The city also relies heavily on the cruise business. A trip to Venice would not be complete without hopping aboard a vaporetto for the ride across the lagoon to Murano, home of Venice fabled glass workers.
Certainly Venice best-known church and attraction, and one of the most easily recognized in the world, St. Mark Basilica (Basilica di San Marco) as its mentioned in Venice attractions map was originally the Doge private chapel, decorated with Byzantine art treasures that are part of the booty brought back by Venetian ships after the fall of Constantinople. More than its architectural grace, St. Mark Square (Piazza San Marco) is loved as Venice living room, the place everybody gathers, strolls, drinks coffee, stops to chat, meets friends and tour guides, or just passes through on the way to work or play.
Sweeping through the heart of Venice in a giant reverse S curve, the Grand Canal is the principal boulevard through the city and best attraction of Venice, connecting Piazza San Marco, Rialto Bridge, and the arrival points of the rail station and bridge from the mainland as its shown in Venice attractions map. Only four bridges cross its 3.8-kilometer length, but stripped-down gondolas called traghetti shuttle back and forth at several points between bridges. The Grand Canal was the address of choice for anyone who claimed any influence in Venice. Once the only bridge across the Grand Canal, Rialto Bridge marks the spot of the island first settlement, called Rivus Altus (high bank).
