Venice Piazza at McKinley Hill, BGC

       Have you ever dreamed of going to Venice, Italy and ride a gondola through its grand canal but is short of budget? A new development in McKinley Hill, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City called Venice Piazza is an answer to your dream. It is a replica and a glimpse of daily scenes in Venice, Italy: smooth-flowing canal, gondolas, and rainbow-colored structures. Venice is the inspiration of the Venetian Macau in China and Venetian Las Vegas, USA. And now we have one in the Philippines!

      The facade of the piazza has a fountain with the name of the place in it. There are a lot of people when I visited because the place.
Grand Canal
      Inspired by the grandeur of the Piazza San Marco, the Venice Piazza at McKinley Hill is the perfect place to go for a  family or friend weekend with its great mix of dining establishments and a great variety of entertainment and leisure options. 

The facade of the piazza has a fountain with the name of the place in it. There are a lot of people when I visited because it's a weekend. When I entered the place, there is a plaza which is decorated with Chinese lamp parols (that's how I describe it so let me know what does it exactly called). - See more at: http://dearsandycheeks.blogspot.com/2016/02/venicepiazzaatmckinleyhill.html#sthash.CHSFazCn.dpuf
Gondola
         Like the real one in Italy, this place is also equipped with gondolas: is a traditional, flat-bottomed Venetian rowing boat, well suited to the conditions of the Venetian lagoon. The rowing oar, which is not fastened to the hull, is used in a sculling manner, also acting as the rudder. For centuries the gondola was the chief means of transportation and most common watercraft within Venice. You can now treat your loved ones to a short gondola ride.Isn't it romantic?
A cafe beside the canal
       There are several shops that are already open, some are under construction and some are waiting to be leased. There are lot of dining options available: Seafood Island, Kuse, Tokyo Tokyo, Tokyo Cafe, Amici, Uncle Cheffy, Rufo's Famous Tapa, Classic Savory, Bonchon, Zarks Burger, and more. Aside from being delighted by the sceneries here, your stomach will surely will too.

     The Venice Piazza at McKinley Hill is a highly-regarded dining hotspot and home to an excellent chain of restaurants offering diners a taste of European and Mediterranean flavors amidst a charming setting. Standing nearby is McKinley Hill’s newest dining attraction, Tuscany at McKinley Hill, a scenic restaurant row inspired by the grandeur of one of the most magnificient places in Italy. Beneath its carefully crafted facades and rustic exteriors lies its best-kept secrets – a whole new world of flavors waiting to be discovered.

Condominiums in the background
       The place is situated in the middle of high-rise condominiums and lucky are those units overlooking the Grand Canal.

The bridge over calm waters
      There is also a spot at the Venice Piazza for mini-concerts or album launches. This is a truly Venetian experience one shouldn’t miss! Venice Piazza will take you to an unforgettable romantic experience without having to leave the country.

How to get there?
       From MRT Guadalupe, walk towards the Guadalupe Commercial Complex (its like an old mall). Then ride a jeepney with Gate 3 sign on it. Tell the driver to drop you off at McKinley. The Venice Piazza is few minutes walk from there. It's my first time by the way here at McKinley so I'm sure you'll not be lost too. Or if you have extra money, grab an Uber.
