Venice and its Lagoon

Brief description

Founded in the 5th century and spread over 118 small islands, Venice became a major maritime power in the 10th century. The whole city is an extraordinary architectural masterpiece in which even the smallest building contains works by some of the world’s greatest artists such as Giorgione, Titian, Tintoretto, Veronese and others.

I have visited this wonderful city a couple of times – once staying in a hotel close to the Bridge of Sighs, and once in an apartment in San Marco. Wonderful to wander the narrow streets, even the experience of aqua alta is unforgettable (as long as you have waterproof boots!)
