Venice is world-famous as the “City of Water”. Its urban fabric is waterways crossed and completely surrounded by water, as well.
Built on 117 small islands, separated by 150 canals, Venice is acknowledged as one of the world’s greatest and most gorgeous cities of art. Founded and grew in the most hostile situations, up to becoming one of the European powers, Venice is still a magnificent open-sky museum that modernity has not destroyed nor cancelled during centuries. People can enjoy the city’s most evocative views walking trough the several secluded ways or by a gondola tour, slipping in the canals under many pictoresque bridges, like in a dream.
