Venice – city of canals and palazzos

Venice, the crown jewel of Italy’s Veneto region, is a masterstroke of engineering and artistry. Comprising 118 interconnected islands, it remains the world’s only city built entirely on water. St. Mark’s Square stands proudly at its heart, bordered by the Doge’s Palace and the Campanile, chiming in harmony with Venetian life. Veer off the main pathways, and treasures like the Scuola Grande di San Rocco, resplendent with Tintoretto’s brilliance, await. But Venice’s true uniqueness? Its blend of age-old grandeur with modern vibrancy. Amidst rising tides and gracefully gliding gondolas, the spirit of ’La Serenissima’ – the most serene – ensures each visit to this Italian gem is both enchanting and ever-evolving.
