5 REASONS TO VISIT VENICE

THE MOST BEAUTIFUL ROOM OF EUROPE

01
The charm of the lagoon city has won over artists and notable people. Napoleon was enchanted by the architectural jewel of St. Mark's Square, emblem of the city, that has earned the epithet of Most Beautiful Room of Europe. The Basilica, the Ducal Palace, the winged lions that keep watch, the Clock Tower: a perfect composition that invites thousands of tourists to stay every year.

WALK ON WATER

02
The most particular characteristic of Venice is that it is a city of art on water. Its beauty is discovered in its hidden angles, passing through the bays farthest from St. Mark's Square, where the buildings to admire seem to bloom from the water, passing over the bridges that open onto squares. A tour by boat or a ride in a gondola will show you the city from a new point of view.

THE MAGIC OF THE ISLANDS

03
A collection of islands and islets rise from the water and create a unique spectacle of the lagoon city. Giudecca is the biggest of the Venetian Islands, the closest to the historic center, and takes its name, according to legend, to the antique presence of a Jewish community. If Murano is the island with the most admired glass in all the world, Burano, with its picturesque colored houses, is the island of lace. From the best known to the least traveled, the charm and history of the Serenissima begins here.

A TRIUMPH OF ART AND BEAUTY

04
Venice is a precious jewel box that shows its treasures along the bays and canals. But the city also holds unique art collections from around the world in its museum. The Peggy Guggenheim Collection is the most prestigious Italian collection dedicated to European and American art from the first half of the 1900s. It contains masterpieces of Pollock, De Chirico, Picasso, Kandinsky, Brancusi and Duchamp, and the greatest artists of Italian Futurism. The Venetian vocation for art is confirmed by the celebrated Venice Biennial, an international exhibition supported by the cultural institution of the same name, that promotes research in the visual arts, architecture, dance, cinema, music and theater.

DAILY LIFE IN VENICE AND THE MOST BEAUTIFUL CARNIVAL IN THE WORLD

05
Venice emanates art and beauty, but also an aristocratic society. A different mode of entertainment that speaks of exclusivity. The loisir (entertainment) starts from Casinò Venier, born in the 17th Century, and the first in Italy and Europe, and from the parties that animate the historic buildings during the various events of the year, as with the International Film Festival, which sees loads of celebrities. Not to mention the Carnival, when for about three weeks the city becomes the stage for masked revelers dressed in sumptuous dresses. To admire the city, shows, and dancing parades, among which is the famous Ballo del Doge – Doge's Ball.
