Venice is the perfect place to find out the best locations for your photoshoot when you travel. The capital of the Veneto region in Italy is a peculiar city separated by canals and linked over 400 splendorous bridges. It’s small enough that you can walk it in several hours. In Venice, the best option to explore it is to get lost in the endless canals, go window shopping at the Rialto Market and many other small shops with beautiful displays, including jewelry, handmade carnival masks and artful blown glass from Murano Island.

Venice is not only famous for its architecture, canals, and handicrafts. But also is well known by its many festivals such as the Carnevale which last about two weeks, draw 30 million visitors each year and abuzz its alleys with costumed characters. Another significant event in this gorgeous city is the Venice Biennale which presents exhibitions dedicated to contemporary art, architecture, dance, film, and theatre. Is one of the most prestigious forums for contemporary art in the world. These two events with the Veneto Jazz, Venice International Film Festival, Regata Storica, and many others make Venice an essential destination for every traveler.

The best option to know better the most beautiful places in Venice is walking through its canals and alleys. In this way, you’ll discover local shops or even magical places, which will allow you to understand the culture and local people by the hand of local people.


Check out our favorite locations for your photoshoot in Venice :


Grand Canal

Venice is built on many islands in a Lagoon. That’s why it has no roads, instead has more than 150 canals. One of these canals is the Grand Canal considered the main street in Venice and the largest in the city. Nowadays is heavily transited waterway and it crosses the city from the railway station to San Marco, passing through the center of Venice. The “Vaporetto” is a cheap and excellent way to explore this channel. As well as taxis and gondolas, are also a good option but are more expensive. However, some photoshoot in a gondola’s tour will be an extraordinary and memorable souvenir, because you’ll use amazing facades like a beautiful background.

An excellent location to start exploring the Grand Canal is walking from the Rialto Bridge. It offers spectacular views of the City and Grand Canal itself. Remember that to avoid the sheer number of people in the Rialto you’ll need to be an early bird to capture in a lovely sunrise.

Saint Mark’s Square

Venice’s heart is a sublime piece of art and architecture called St. Mark’s Basílica. Located in the Piazza San Marco a spectacular open space enclosed by beautiful arcades. It is the place of the three major landmarks in Venice. The Basilica di San Marco, The Tower dell’Orologio, and the Doge’s Place. The Basilica with its big onion domes, its multicolored marble pillars, and a glamours interior is something you can’t miss.

Saint Mark’s square gives you the opportunity to capture the most iconic landmarks in Venice. Surrounded by beautiful buildings next to the sea. It invites you to relax taking some coffee in a gorgeous terrace or feeding the pigeons in the middle of the square whilst your photoshoot take place. Don’t worry about posing, the ambiance, pigeons and antic backgrounds will help you to capture beautiful and natural moments.

Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute

Our last recommendation is located at Punta della Dogana, between the Grand Canal and the Giudecca Canal. It’s visible from the St. Mark’s Square and you can see its beautiful dome (part of the Venice skyline) from the Rialto bridge. The Basilica di Santa María is the second most renowned church in Venice.

The best things here are the exterior decoration: the four statues of the apostles in baroque style, the dome towers part of the skyline in the city and its proximity with the grand canal. These characteristics are fundamental to generate spectacular backgrounds for your photoshoot. A beautiful staircase next to the canal gives you the opportunity to play posing to the camera. You’ll also have the chance to walk through little and romantic alleys next to the church. Discovering places like the San Giorgio’s church, the art gallery L’Occhio, the Peggy Guggenheim collection and the enjoyable Fornace River.
