Venice.
The Floating City.

The floating city of Venice is a true original, generating passion in all of its visitors. The 400 bridges that connect almost 200 islands are the result of centuries of diligent work. Venice has been an inspiration for the most exquisite minds in the world, receiving praise from the likes of Lord Byron, Napoleon, and Michelangelo, among others. The city appears enchanted and almost designed for couples in love. The quaint cafes, waterfront restaurants, cobblestone alleys, and dramatic architecture all brim with romance. Lovers are just as important to the scenery of Venice as many other landmarks and treasures. In Saint Mark’s Square, you will find yourself literally surround by architecture spanning several centuries. A short trip to the island of Murano will allow you to see an ancient art form in more modern designs. As you stroll along the Grand Canal, remember this body of water supported what was once the most important commercial power in all of the Mediterranean. Be sure to visit all of the major points of interest, but leave time to get lost in the complicated labyrinth of alleyways. No matter which path you choose, the city is full of inescapable symbols such as the lions of St. Mark, the red and white striped shirts of the gondoliers, and, of course, the bridges, which manage to hold every breathtaking piece together.
