And to help you find out locations of the most instagramable places in Venice and most suitable route for your photoshoot.

Because I believe that planing a photo shoot on your vacation should be easy and fun.

San Marco photoshoot route – most iconic

St. Marks square is the most popular and well-known location in Venice.

Most of the tours starts there. This is why it get pretty crowded already at 8 am in the morning!

So if you want to have your photos taken there be ready to wake up early and have an unforgettable experience of more private, quiet, empty Venice.

Backstreets of San Marco

I will never stop saying that all of Venice is beautiful.

And you don’t need to stay on most touristic routes to take amazing photographs on little bridges, streets and along the canals.

So if you staying in center but not ready to wake up early, or maybe you are on a one day visit – lets explore back streets!
