Venice

Venice

There is no other city like Venice. It has 180 canals and 450 bridges connecting 118 small islands and magnificent buildings. It is a city rich with museums and historical landmarks of great artistic and cultural importance. The transient feeling and the quiet everyday life bring the whole together. The beauty of it all is truly apparent.

Doge’s Palace

The Doge's Palace, locally known as the Palazzo Ducale, used to be the residence of the Doge of Venice, and also a space where the government could lodge. Both the court and the prison were located within the palace walls, but since 1923 the building is better known as a museum.

Da Fiore

Once a neighbourhood tavern fit for "un' ombra" (literally "shadow", Venetian slang for a glass of wine), today Da Fiore could possibly be the city’s best restaurant, with sober décor, elegant rooms and delicious dishes like misto crudo (marinated raw fish) and pennette with crayfish and broccoli.
