The mystical charm of Venice has influenced numerous films, novels and poems for centuries. This city is surreal, unique, having earned nicknames such as "City of Water", "City of Masks", "City of Bridges" and the most romantic city in the world. Venice has remained unchanged in the last six hundred years and it has attracted tourist for just as long. Quite understandable, who could resist the beautiful Venetian Gothic architecture, the stunning artworks of the churches and the element of elegant decay. The city is actually a lagoon made up of 117 islands with homes built partly held up by massive wooden beams and held together by hundred of small bridges. Transportation within the city remains entirely on water or on foot, making Venice Europe's largest urban car-free area. Today, Venice is a major fashion and shopping destination as well or you can run to the beaches of the Lido for a day in the sun.
Venice, the capital of northern Italy’s Veneto region, is built on more than 100 small islands in a lagoon in the Adriatic Sea. It has no roads, just canals – including the Grand Canal thoroughfare – lined with Renaissance and Gothic palaces. The central square, Piazza San Marco, contains St. Mark’s Basilica, which is tiled with Byzantine mosaics, and the Campanile bell tower offering views of the city’s red roofs.
