Full of magic and mystery, canal-carved Venice, the capital city of the Veneto, casts a spell on all who wander its shores.

A major maritime player founded in the fifth century, Venice is a collection of more than 100 marshy islands on the Adriatic. This watery, fabled city is a wanderer’s dream. Cross cobbled foot bridges and sneak down hushed alleyways that open up into grand piazzas and campos framed by domed basilicas and crumbling palazzos. Explore hidden chambers where Doges once trod, masked revelers waltzed, and artists and artisans created lasting works. A grand patron of the arts through the ages, contemporary museums continue that tradition today.
