Venice, the Floating City

La Serenissima. It is the principal city of the Veneto region, in the NorthEastern side of Italy, and it is built on many little islands gathered in the Laguna Venetaof the Adriatic Sea. Yes, it has no roads. Yes, it has many bridges. Yes, people walk for most of the time, and the steamboats are less often used by the locals.

La Serenissima

The Venetian Experience

The canals – including the Grand Canal which divides the two rive of the island – separate the several rioni (similar to neighborhoods) where Renaissance and Gothic palaces stand with authority facing the water. The famous central square, Piazza San Marco, is the home of the beautiful St. Mark’s Basilica, showing Byzantine mosaics colored in blue and gold. The famous Gondolas are today a tourist attraction.

Beautiful? It cannot be labeled. The canals, the gondolas, the history, the art, the little islands of Murano and Burano with the colors and the reflections on the water, the list could go on and on. The best thing to do in Venice is to just get lost and keep walking. You will end up bumping into some charming corners, funny and cheerful Gondolieri, more wandering tourists and fast walking locals.
