The Romantic Lagoon City Venice

Viewing of a City where one only can get ahead on Foot or by Boat


Venice is indeed an Italian small city if one considers its number of inhabitants. But in reality, Venice is a significant world city with a big famousness that is somehow known by everybody, also if one has not been there. The same way a one associates the city Paris with the Eiffel Tower, with London the Big Ben or with Moskau the Kreml, the city Venezia is named in one breath with the famous gondolas and waterways. And of course, even as a person who has bever been there, one has already seen the world famous Piazza San Marco on TV and even if it was just for the reason that again, it was covered with water.

Venice belongs to those cities that one wants to have seen in any case. Finally, it is something special and very unique if there are no cars but ships driving through the city, when the main roads do not consist on asphalt but on water and when the houses are not standing on a dry ground but right on the saltwater.

But Venice of course offers much more than ships, gondolas and water streets. There are countless churches, thereunder such world famous ones as the San Marco Basilica, palaces and gorgeous buildings, nearly countless plazas and parks and of course a good dozen of partly excellent museums. But the actual totally fascinating thing of Venice cannot be described concretely: it is the possibility to promenade in a car-less city all over the huge labyrinth consisting on small streets and alleyways and passing thereby hundreds of small shops and probably buy one or two souvenirs or piece of clothes.
