Venice, a unique city in the world. Its beauty is clear everywhere you look, from the narrow, winding streets to the squares and bridges that connect the islands.
Venice is famous for its history and culture, and the way these are reflected in the city’s architecture and monuments. St Mark’s Basilica, the Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale) and the Rialto Bridge are just some of the main attractions worth visiting. There is also no shortage of cultural events: the Art Biennale, the Carnival and the Film Festival are just a few examples.
The cuisine is exceptional, with a wide variety of delicious dishes that combine unique flavours of Italian cuisine and local seafood dishes. Venetian specialities include ‘cicchetti’, typical appetisers, and the famous Venetian-style liver, a tasty and hearty dish.
Regardless of whether one is a fan of art, history, cuisine or simple romantic strolls, Venice has everything to satisfy the needs of any visitor.
