A city like no other, Venice is one of the most beautiful places in the world. With historical significance during both the Middle Ages and the Italian Renaissance, Venice's culture is as deep and complex as the system of islands it is built upon.

It would be impossible to visit Venice without taking a boat trip along one of its 177 canals, lined with ornate palaces. The city of Venice has no streets, and traffic comes instead in the form of gondolas and other boats navigating through the scenic canals. The largest of these is the Grand Canal, which bisects the city.

To experience the heart of Venice, visit St. Mark's square, dominated by the sublime Byzantine architecture of St. Mark's Basilica. Tours of the famous building take place daily. Then, spend the day wandering through Venice's romantic streets and discovering the many gelaterias, souvenir shops, local boutiques, and authentic cafes, the most famous of which is Caffe Florian. This legendary cafe has hosted many celebrities over the centuries, and the original 18th-century decor remains as inviting as ever.

Venice's southern-central location in Europe makes it easily accessible from far and wide. The city's primary airport is Venice Marco Polo Airport. Venice also has two main train stations, and direct trains are available from many European cities, even all the way to Munich. In addition, bus services connect Venice to various international destinations, with the added benefit of an eye-level view of the Northern Italian landscapes.
