Venice

Venice is a magical and romantic city on the Adriatic. Gondolas tied to wooden stakes rock gently on the Grand Canal, a picture of a unique land-and seascape, of almost unimaginable beauty. First on the list of UNESCO protected cultural monuments, the city centre is scattered across several islands in the middle of a lagoon, and joined by over 400 bridges crossing 177 famous Venetian canals. St Marks square is the focal point of the city, and the magnificent and opulent Doge`s palace, was once the residence of the 120 doges who ruled Venice. The markets of Rialto and the Cannareggio areas offer an interesting insight into local life. The island of Murano is world famous for its fabulous Murano glass products, and the Campanile, is where Galileo demonstrated his telescope to the doge.
