Lose yourself in the city’s maze of water canals and majestic buildings. Unique and romantic, Venice is a living artwork. Intriguingly, Venice was originally chosen as a good place for a settlement because those living there were trying to escape a barbaric invasion.
Walking around the city is a fascinating experience, especially armed with the knowledge that it was built directly on top of a marshy lagoon, hundreds of years ago, using mainly wooden planks and stakes driven into the mud.
- Venice sits on an archipelago of 118 islands.
- 50,000 tourists visit the city every day.
