Venice is a city in northeastern Italy and the capital of the Veneto region. It is sited on a group of 117 small islands that are separated by canals and linked by bridges. These are located in the marshy Venetian Lagoon which stretches along the shoreline, between the mouths of the Po and the Piave Rivers.
Venice and Italy lie in the Central European Time zone (GMT+1) and the official currency in is EUR.
The city has a Humid subtropical climate, with cool winters and very warm summers. In May the average daily temperature lies between 17 and 22 deg C. The average temperature of the see in the Lagoon area is about 19 deg C.
Venice is served by the Marco Polo International Airport (Aeroporto di Venezia Marco Polo), named in honour of its famous citizen. The airport is on the mainland and was rebuilt away from the coast. Public transport from the airport takes one to Venice by buses. motor boats, railways and taxis.
The Republic of Venice was a major maritime power during the Middle Ages and Renaissance, and a staging area for the Crusades and the Battle of Lepanto, as well as a very important centre of commerce and art in the 13th century up to the end of the 17th century. This made Venice a wealthy city throughout most of its history. After the Napoleonic Wars and the Congress of Vienna, the Republic was annexed by the Austrian Empire, until it became part of the Kingdom of Italy in 1866. Venice has played an important role in the history of symphonic and operatic music, and it is the birthplace of Antonio Vivaldi.
The name is derived from the ancient Veneti people who inhabited the region by the 10th century BC. The city was historically the capital of the Republic of Venice.
The maze of canals threaded through the city requires use of more than 400 bridges to permit flow of foot traffic. The main public transportation means in Lagoon area are motorised waterbuses (vaporetti) which ply regular routes along the Grand Canal and between the city's islands. The only gondole still in common use by Venetians are the traghetti, foot passenger ferries crossing the Grand Canal at certain points without bridges.
The Carnival of Venice is an annual festival held in Venice, Italy. The Carnival ends with the Christian celebration of Lent, forty days before Easter, on Shrove Tuesday (Mardi Gras), the day before Ash Wednesday. In the seventeenth century, the baroque carnival was a way to save the prestigious image of Venice in the world and today is the world-famed for its elaborate masks.

Only 7 kilometres from Venice, a 40-minute trip by Venetian motorboats "vaporetti”, at the northern end of the Lagoon is an island Burano. It is a fishing village known for its handcrafted lace and technicolor houses. Centuries ago, an easily distracted Buranelli sailor was lured to the island by a beautiful mermaid. She splashed her tail and created intricately patterned sea spray which she used as her wedding veil for her upcoming nuptials to her sailor. The village girls were jealous of her veil and did their best to replicate the airy patterns with needle and thread, thus beginning Burano’s tradition of handcrafted lace. Some say the houses were painted brightly so fisherman returning from sea could spot their houses through the fog. A less romantic version say the houses were painted distinctively so fishermen could find their way home after a night on the town.
Venice was also the epicenter for creative glassmaking for centuries. Artisans lived and worked in the city until leaders decided the fire risk was too great and moved the glassmakers to Murano. Over centuries, creative glassmaking became Murano’s legacy. The island filled with furnaces pumping out the heat and the smoke,

MUST DO in Venice!
MUST TASTE in Venice!
The lagoon city has a long and glorious culinary tradition based on fresh seafood. A writhing, glistening variety of sea creatures swims from the stalls of the Rialto and Chioggia markets into local kitchens. Going with the flow of la cucina veneta requires a certain spirit of openminded experimentation.
Eat Seafood You’ve
never seen before
To the usual Italian breakfast, light snacks, pastries and alcoholic beverages routine, Venice contributes its own specialities: the ombra and the spritz. The former is a tiny glass of wine – bianco or rosso – which is knocked back in no time and is often the whole point of a giro di ombre – an ombra-crawl around selected bacari.
Drink like a Venetian – and
go on a Secret Wine Tour
Water, water, water everywhere, and some wonderful places to
drink. The best waterside bars include Al Chioschetto for enjoying the Zattere, Vincent Bar for leafy lagoon calm and Taverna del Campiello Remer for a Grand Canal perch.

Most Venetians agree that some of the city’s best gelato is served in Boutique del Gelato, a tiny outlet on busy salizzada San Lio. At Alaska Gelateria-Sorbetteria Carlo Pistacchi is passionate about making ice-cream and experimenting with new flavours using only the freshest natural ingredients.
