The magnificent city of Venice is both dreamlike and romantic. Established more than 1,000 years ago by seafarers and Roman refugees, the city was constructed on the muddy banks of 117 islands in the Venetian Lagoon. This is a city with tics to Charlemagne, Michelangelo and Napoleon and where one can experience the very essence of Italian culture. With 117 islands separated by more than 150 waterways, this is the original Venice, the canal-laced city that all the others are compared to. See the heralded Bridge of Sighs and St. Mark's Square. Enjoy a romantic ride in a gondola, or visit the nearby island of Murano, where artisans create its world famous glass.
A great place to visit is St. Mark's Basilica. The church attracts a lot of tourist from all over the world. The exterior is just amazing. Stunning domes, floors, and walls with golden mosaics. The structure is big, therefore bring plenty of film for your camera because every inch of this building is a photo opportunity.
If you are crazy about art, you have to visit the Academy Gallery. here you will find the city's most important and prestigious art gallery. The museum houses a collection of Venetian painting. A great place to stop if you want to view some of the most beautiful art in the city.
