Venice is everything you’ve heard and more. This extraordinary city rises magnificently from water, as canals replace streets and visitors float along the Grand Canal appreciating its array of sights. It is claimed that Venice’s population doubles each day when tourists descend on its glistening waters, so it comes as no surprise that Venice is bursting with cultural treats.
The city is made up of 117 islands which are connected by bridges and canals, hence the unforgettable image of travellers exploring Venice via gondola. The canals are lined with churches and architecture that each tell a story. The city’s history then reaches its climax at Saint Mark’s Basilica which epitomises Renaissance architecture.
Venice is undoubtedly visually stunning and whether it is experienced with scorching Italian sunshine or cooler mistier climes, travellers will always see its beauty.
