12 Amazing Venice Photos That Show Why You Simply Have to Visit

While I don’t think that many people need to be convinced that Venice, Italy is quite the beautiful city, I also don’t think that the city’s sheer grandeur can be exaggerated. It is simply a breathtaking historic city, as the dozen best photos of Venice in this post will show you. Venice is one of the world’s most spectacular cities, spread out across several islands, crisscrossed by the most picturesque canals, boasting astonishing pastel-colored architecture and home to a couple of world-class museums. It’s simply a place that you have to visit at least once in your lifetime.

That said; visiting Venice doesn’t need to last longer than two to three days. You can easily explore this northeastern Italian city on foot—wandering aimlessly through the maze-like streets and alleyways is a great deal of fun. A three-day stay in Venice would also allow you some additional time to visit the nearby islands, such as Murano and Burano. From late January to early March is Venice Carnival time for this year round destination.

This post is about offering you guys some photographic inspiration—as if you need that when it comes to romantic Venice!—so let’s get to the photos, shall we?
