The Jewel of the Adriatic
As God made the Garden of Eden, the Venetians made Venice, “Queen of the Sea”, one of the few cities in the world that can truly be described as unique. It is a city whose magical environment of islands and bridges evokes fascination and intrigue.
Venice is gondolas, winding canals, stunning palaces, majestic monuments, mirror images shimmering everywhere; a fascinating and magic city between sea and sky, like Venus rising from waves. Whereas other cities possess artistic treasures, Venice itself is the treasure!!!
Some of the most well-known sights of this admirable city are: St. Mark's Basilica; the Doges Palace, the Bridge of Sighs and the Bell Tower.
Through the centuries, Venetians have become extremely skilled masters in the handicrafts of glass-blowing from the famous Island of Murano and the laces exported throught the world from the Island of Burano.
