Venice, the mysterious lady behind the Carnevale mask, really needs no introduction.
La Serenissima (The Most Serene), without a doubt, is one of the most recognizable, beautiful, romantic and popular cities in the world. Don’t believe me? Just ask the 20+ million tourists that visit her annually.
The home of Casanova, colorful hand-blown glass, the ombra (glass of wine), cicchetti (appetizers) and 417 bridges, the City of Canals is best experienced on foot, but the views aren’t too bad aboard one of the vaporetti (water buses) that glide their way up and down the city’s iconic, serpentine-shaped thoroughfare: the Grand Canal.
