Venice, romantic and beautiful, with an invaluable artistic heritage, called “The Serenissima”, it has been for over a millennium the capital of the Republic of Venice.
The territory covers a large part of the Lagoon of Venice. To best way to start the day is breathing the rich history of Venice walking in the beautiful Piazza San Marco, where you find the Basilica San Marco, which its gold cover and Byzantine mosaics. Walking in the old city you can find the Palazzo Ducale in the Gothic style, and then the Bridge of Sighs. In any monument you see there are so many memories, just think that many artists and writers were born and raised here or they have based some of their works in this town.
The venetian best known is Marco Polo, but also Ugo Foscolo (famous poet and patriot of the Risorgimento) born when there was still the Republic of Venice, while have wrote: Carlo Goldoni (father of comedy dialect), Giacomo Casanova (prolific writer) and Shakespeare (with “Otello” and “The Merchant of Venice”).
