Venice is a tourist attraction itself, capital of passion and romanticism, home to some of the world most impressive buildings, awesome museums and fine art galleries.

Art is everywhere here and Venice is visited by many thousands of visitors every year.

It is a city that must be discovered on foot, perhaps by losing oneself in the magical labyrinth created by lanes, small and large squares and canals.

It is "Imperative" visiting San Marco Square, the well-known Rialto Bridge, the refined Doge’s Palace, the Bridge of Sighs and more...

Venice is really a place like no other, with its unusual alleys, watercourses and way of life. It guarantees emotional enchantment all year round.

The main and extraordinary waterway is the Canal Grande, which is over 3800 meters, with its majestic palaces and splendid Rialto Bridge. With its typical upside-down S shape, it splits the city from Piazzale Roma to St. Mark's Basin. Studies have revealed that once may have been a bed of the river Brenta, later diverted.

Venice was divided since ancient times in six districts, in ascending order of size: Santa Croce, San Polo, San Marco, Dorso Duro, Cannaregio and Castello, the most populated.

The streets of Venice are called "Calli", from Latin Callis - pathways: there are over 3000.It is so easy and pleasant to get lost in a maze of channels of history and picturesque corners.

Venice is a magical place to explore and experience: unique environment to enjoy the day with an atmosphere so romantic in the evening.

In the evenings, in that mysterious silence that is only possible in Venice, the city becomes even more extraordinary and dreamlike, leaving us time to abandon ourselves to romance, poetry, and melancholy...
