Of course Venice, Venice was, is and will be one of the most romantic places in the world.
City water, and in water from the water.
An unreal world of reflections, elusive luxury palaces, slowly floating gondola, streaming feeds of the street, curving bridges and fresh sea wind in your face while walking on the vaporetto.
And enterprising women in Venice can check their mate on greed.
Venice is a city in northeastern Italy and the capital of the Veneto region. It is situated across a group of 117 small islands that are separated by canals and linked by bridges. These are located in the shallow Venetian Lagoon, an enclosed bay that lies between the mouths of the Po and the Piave Rivers. Parts of Venice are renowned for the beauty of their settings, their architecture, and artwork. The lagoon and a part of the city are listed as a World Heritage Site.
In 2014, 264,579 people resided in Comune di Venezia, of whom around 55,000 live in the historic city of Venice (Centro storico). Together with Padua and Treviso, the city is included in the Padua-Treviso-Venice Metropolitan Area (PATREVE), with a total population of 2.6 million. PATREVE is a statistical metropolitan area without any degree of autonomy.
The name is derived from the ancient Veneti people who inhabited the region by the 10th century BC. The city was historically the capital of the Republic of Venice. Venice has been known as the «La Dominante,» «Serenissima,» «Queen of the Adriatic,» «City of Water,» «City of Masks,» «City of Bridges,» «The Floating City,» and «City of Canals.»
