Venice, City of Mirages!
Just hearing the words, ‘Venice, Italy’ conjures exquisite images of historic architecture, breathtaking sunsets, and of course the iconic gondola ride
. The city of Venice holds many nicknames including the most romantic city in the world and the most beautiful city in the world. One would be hard pressed to argue either of these points. The city is situated in Northern Italy and is made up of 118 small islands which stretch across the Venetian Lagoon. Canals separate the islands which are linked by 400 bridges.
The traditional form of transportation in Venice is, of course, the gondola ride. Few activities are as synonymous with a city as a gondola ride in Venice. A ride on the Grand Canal
is a popular activity. However, this is the most crowded of the Venetian canals. For a peaceful or romantic gondola ride, look at other less crowded canals. A gondola ride is a wonderful way to get an overview of parts of the city and a relaxing way to take in the sights.
Regardless of personal tastes, every true shopping aficionado will find delightful treasures in Venice
. There are ample opportunities to buy ornate Venetian Carnival masks, Murano
glass from the island of Murano, souvenirs, foods, textiles, and unique jewelry pieces are all waiting for your discovery. However, the true fashionista will find a designer shopping Mecca located just west of the piazza San Marco. High-end labels such as Gucci, Prada, and Armani cluster with similar designer brands among adjoining side streets. This area is a true can’t miss destination for those devoted to designer labels.
