Houston to Venice low-priced flights
These low-priced fares from Houston to Venice, Italy's most romantic and beautiful city, are not to be missed. Built on an archipelago of 118 small islands, the 177 canals and 416 bridges make the city one of mankind's true engineering and architectural masterpieces. The grandeur of Venice is owed to her wealth during the Middle Ages when she was one of the most powerful city states in the Mediterranean, attracting the most talented artists and architects Europe had to offer. Exploring the museums, art galleries and historic buildings can easily be done on foot, however, taking a ride on a gondola along the Grand Canal encapsulates the authentic Venetian experience. For hundreds of years these gondolas were the main form of transport in the city. St Mark's Square is the principle square of Venice and one of the most breathtaking sights you'll see. With the lagoon and columns behind you, St Mark's Square is lined with historic buildings and palaces leading up to the magnificent Basilica of St Mark at the head of the square. Many regard this basilica, with its mosaics, marble pillars, onion domes and Renaissance artwork, as one of the most beautiful churches in the world. It is also well worth taking an elevator to the top of the Campanile, Venice's tallest structure, to get a bird's-eye view of this amazing city. Make sure you take the time to relax at the many cafes and restaurants and really soak up the atmosphere and culture of this unique city.
