A group of around 100 tiny islands, lapped by the waters of the Adriatic Sea, replete with magnificent art and architecture, the dreamy sight of gondolas slowly making their way through the canals, amid the signature ‘oieee’ calls – little surprise why Venice automatically features among the most romantic and beautiful cities in the world! Literally every brick of this city is steeped in history, given its strict laws on historical preservation. From stunning palaces flanking the Grand Canal exhibiting a medley of architectural styles to the paintings of Renaissance masters that dot the walls of the city’s many churches and the Teatro la Fenice’s ornate setting with its gilded boxes, witness to many powerful operas, Venice is all about the celebration of rich cultural treasures. It’s hard not to travel back in time as you walk through its hidden paths and shortcuts – and it’s equally difficult not to get lost in the labyrinth of passages, a beautiful adventure in itself and literally a rite of passage for any traveler in the city! Equally unmissable is sipping a coffee at the many cafes that dot these lanes, or savoring the freshest of seafood – making every trip to Venice a feast for all the senses!
