Historic Venice is famed as a city of islands, linked by a network of waterways. Its landmarks include the Piazzo San Marco, a square dominated by Saint Mark's Basilica, and the Grand Canal, where visitors can take a romantic ride by gondola. Next to the famous canal is one of the city's two main train stations, Venezia Santa Lucia. Travelers arriving here can take a water bus or water taxi into the city. Most trains from Salzburg stop at both Santa Lucia and the other main station, Venezia Mestre, which is on the mainland and served by regular buses.
