Venice – Romance and Culture in ‘La Serenissima'
Venice, known as ‘La Serenissima' was a centre of wealth and culture for centuries and is today prized as one of the most romantic cities on Earth. Perching on several islands in the Venetian Lagoon, Venice is a city of canals crossed by hundreds of bridges. These connect vibrant squares to atmospheric piazzas hidden among the city's historic buildings and waterways. As a centre for art and culture, Venice boasts an array of world class galleries, theatres, and museums you will lose yourself exploring in. Experience the grandeur of renaissance Venice with a visit to St Mark's Square or take a boat to the outlying island of Murano to witness valuable Venetian glass being made by skilled artisans. You may wish to take a romantic gondola ride through the canals or enjoy exemplary cuisine in one of the city's many restaurants.
