Venice - la Serenissima

Stock Photography By Lars-Olof Nilsson

Too many tourists and a rising sea level threaten this faded beauty. But stay away from the crowded places and you will find memorable sights that will make you come back again and again. As Marion Kaminski has pointed out, Venice is the perfect place to get lost in. Stroll along narrow canals, cross beautiful arched bridges, sit in a picturesque piazza, take a gondola trip or - less expensive - the vaporetto waterbus to ever more exciting spots. You'll never get enough! And during the Carnival you will meet the most fantastic characters.
