Floating beauty

The grandeur of Venice is revealed by its architecture: magnificent cathedrals, civil palaces and public squares that reflect a fascinating blend of Byzantine, Romanesque and Gothic influences, besides attesting to the affluence and power of the city at its height.

Venice is the city of beauty and enchantment, where fantasy and reality collide. The romantic Floating City stirs the heart and imagination with its canals, where gondolas glide by peacefully between the small 118 islands, and the narrow, winding streets, where light, shadow and color create ever-changing views. It is no wonder why Venice is one of the world’s most unique places that counts approximately 20 million tourist visits annually – a number that keeps increasing year after year.
