About Venice

Who hasn't dreamt in his/her life to spend at least a romantic weekend in the city of Casanova? Well, here is your chance to have a preview of this fantastic location, where - simply put - everything is a must see.

Built on 117 islands, Venice is crossed by 409 bridges, among them, the Ponte dei Sospiri (Bridge of Sighs) is the most famous, and its name derives from the fact that nearby there is the Piombi prison (where Casanova too was incarcerated) from which the sighs of those living in its misery, or sentenced to death were...waiting and wailing.

It's by water that you find the other transportation modes apart from your...feet.One is the vaporetto, the other is the gondola. One of the most beautiful buildings in Venice is the Palazzo Ducale, an imposing masterpiece of the Gothic era, which served either as residence of the doge, or as administrative heart of the Serenissima Republic.
