A nice city, showing you a huge block of history in the city center, like the palace of the Doge, the former ruler of Venice. Also the markus place offers a nice view. The nice and small walkways are also nice to look at. You can go for shopping there, but be aware of the many people, selling just tourist crap. It's also a great thing, going through the water channels with a small ship. If you want, you can also have an 'Gondoliere' singing traditional songs.
Over Vencie you could write much more, mentioning every detail would be to much, so just go there and enjoy the scenery yourself!
