Budapest to Venice: Attractions and Sights St Mark's Square Scala Contarini del Bovolo
We have been to several places together so far and the travel experience in Venice was one of our most treasured. Getting to Venice from Budapest is rather easy, with many choices of travel modes from trains to planes. That time, we chose a place in Venice that is right next to the historical landark, Scala Contarini del Bovolo.
A beautiful and very charming sight, arranging our stay there was a breeze. Most of the hotels in Venice are expensive. So it seemed you do not really need compare too much. Just choose the most central and you can have fun getting lost in Venice like what many travelers' recommended. We, Z&Z recommend you the same 'getting lost in Venice' is one of the fun things you can do as part of the exploration and discovery.

A medieval city like Venice offers wonderful sights even within its courtyards such as as this one in the San Marco district.

The place we stay is right next to the infamous spiral staircase and it was right in the back alley. Not the easiest to find at first, but it seemed every corners in Venice is like this. In the mornings, we had every opportunity to see many other tourists hunting down this famous stirs. Curious eyes marveling at its beauty - a unique mixed of Renaissance, Gothic and Byzantine styles. The name of this special architecture built in 1499 was after the snail (as in 'Bovolo' in Venetian dialect). So you can clearly reference it to the spiral form that is so graceful for an architecture to be.

With white arches that leads to a landing overlooking the city - bell towers, tiled roofs and domes of Saint Mark. All these well known Venice attractions are worth to check out. It was a pity we were not able to do so when we were there.

If you notice, there are significant contrasts from the quaint roofs of Venice's smaller residential areas to the ornate official buildings and churches.

It was an adventure in itself to find our way to Scala Contarini del Bovolo after the water bus ride. However, we will never forget that the south-west of the Rialto leads to an unforgettable Venetian yet mysterious sight. Of course, there many restaurants, the grand canal, Basilica Di San Marco Venice, Piazza San Marco, Palazzo Ducale, Burano, Murano are the sights that you must not spend a little time with each.
