Consisting of more than 100 tiny islands spliced by channels and connected by ancient bridges, Venice is rightfully known as the most romantic city in the world.
Nestled into the north-western corner of the Adriatic Sea, Venice has lots of quiet, intimate places. Less than 60,000 year-round residents live in this wonderland dominated by water. Nevertheless, this delicate gem is a must among the mesmerising array of breath-taking Italian cities. Spend a weekend strolling the evocative calli (alleyways), hunting down a locals-only osteria or exploring the city and its scenic waterways from aboard a gondola.
