The One Thing You Don't Want to Miss

Probably the most famous site in Venice is St. Mark's Basilica. Built to enshrine St. Mark's body in the 9th century, it was rebuilt in the 11th century with a new, spectacular edifice. The interior is clad in wonderful mosaics and holds statues, icons and its famous horses, brought to St. Mark's after the 4th Crusade in 1204.

Get a Taste of Local Flavor

Italians rarely shop in supermarkets. Instead, most prefer specialty stores. You can buy cakes at the pasticceria, milk at the latteria, and pasta, ham and cheese at an alimentari. It's a fun and interesting way to shop, and you'll find that the food is always fresh and delicious.

Local Currency

The Euro (EUR), the currency of the European Union, is the official currency of Italy. Many stores and restaurants also accept major credit cards, which usually offer you a good exchange rate. When shopping, remember there is a Value-Added Tax added to most purchases.
