Historical Architecture
The Government House is the residence of the Governor of the Republic of Venice, the home of the office and the court. It was the central institution of Venetian politics at the time. On the entire wall to the east of the second floor of the Grand Senate’s parliament hall is the “Paradise” painted by Tintoretto. Inside the gorgeous Governor's Mansion, there is a gothic cloister and an expensive golden ladder. The rooms on the second and third floors are decorated with Venetian paintings, the ceiling murals of the four foyer, the murals of the living room and the large conference halls lined with portraits of the Governors of the past.

The Grand Canal, the Grand Canal of Venice, is Venice's main waterway, along the natural waterways from St. Mark's Church to the Church of St. Chiara, in an anti-S shape, from the Roman Forum in the northwest to St. Mark's Square in the city centre. It is connected to many small canals, and most of the city's transportation passes through these waterways. Take a water bus from the Roman Forum, walk between the ancient buildings on both sides of the strait, and enjoy the river of souls of Venice, you can feel the daily life of the Venetians living on the water.

Bridge
Today, custom holds that lovers should kiss under the bridge in order to seal their fate as soul mates. Oddly, the bridge got its name from the sullen prisoners' exasperations as they were ferried across the bridge, from the prison to the courts. Despite its somber purpose, the bridge actually looks very romantic from the outside-- perfect for a great photo.

Church
Started in the 9th Century, Basilica di San Marco's architecture shows an eastern and Byzantine influence: note the golden altarpiece and the 13th and 14th-century mosaics that illustrate the cycles of the Bible. The magnificent domes date from the 12th Century. The Basilica houses the Marciano Museum, which contains the original bronze horses, copies of which are now on the terrace. Other great artworks are located in the Pala d'Oro , along with masterpieces of Gothic gold-smithing, located just behind the altar. At hundreds of years in the making, this beautiful basilica is not just a work of art itself, but houses some of the most important works of art in the world. Step inside (though mind the dress code) to marvel at the golden altarpiece, the mosaics dating back to the 13th century and which portray the cycles of the Bible, and the jaw-dropping domes. The basilica also houses the Marciano Museum and a wonderful display of the most amazing goldsmith work of the Gothic era.

Island/Peninsula
Burano Island is also known as the Color Island. The local government of the island stipulates that the local residents should brush the outer wall of the house once a year, so the residents paint their small and exquisite houses colorful. These colorful houses are one by one, forming a colorful alley. The island's inhabitants are descendants of the fishermen. The island's handmade lace and drawnwork are the same as the Murano's stained glass, which is famous for its handicrafts.
