Venice is a city in northeastern Italy and the capital city of the Veneto region. Once the richest city in the world, today Venice is a world famous destination, and a UNESCO Heritage site. Grandiose city built entirely on water, boasts with its architectural marvels such as Grand Canal, Doge’s Palace and the Basilica of San Marco. However, to truly experience Venice one must roam through the narrow backstreets, where famous adventurer Giacomo Casanova once lived. Despite all the modern high end shopping boutiques around Piazza San Marco, Venice never lost its true soul. Romantic ambiance, with famous Venetian canals, gondolas, and incredible architecture behind every corner, still allows you to experience unforgettable original Venice as it once was.
Garden islands and lagoon aquaculture yield produce and seafood you won’t find elsewhere. For a quick snack a special Venetian tapas cicheti is a must try. For proper sit down meals just choose one of the canal side bistros and indulge in lagoon seafood. And no meal is complete without region’s most famous wine – Prosecco. To top everything off, treat yourself to delicious traditional dessert tiramisu or maybe just a cup of Italian espresso.
History, art, architecture, cuisine and romantic ambiance crown Venice as the Pearl of the Mediterranean.
