The romantic city Venice

Venice is a romantic city in northern Italy where a lot of films and videos for songs were made. The city is also well-known for its typical masks which have been worn during the Carnival of Venice. This carnival has existed since the Middle Ages, but it came into its own in the 18th century.

However, not only the ball in Venice is magnificent. Standing in the middle of piazza San Marco is an experience in itself. St. Mark´s basilica, often seen as the living testimony of Venice´s links with Byzantium, Doge´s Palace, once Venice´s political and judicial hub or Torre dell´Orologio, a clock tower which was built between 1496 and 1506 are not just the square’s but some of the city´s main attractions.

Being in Venice you should not miss getting around in a gondola. This will be for sure an experience of lifetime, especially if you share this with someone you really care for.

Venice is a city where you can eat seafood you have never seen before. The lagoon city has a long and glorious culinary tradition based on fresh seafood. Going with the flow of “la cucina veneta” requires a certain spirit of open-minded experimentation. Not everybody has eaten “granseola” which is the spider crab or “garusoli”, the sea snails. However, Venice is the right place where you can try these.

If seafood is not your cup of tea, then you can try a delicious gelato. The best one is served in Boutique del Gelato. However, be prepared to be patient because there is always a huge crowd waiting to be served.
