Venice Travel Guide

Venice was one of the most enduring mercantile sea powers on the face of the eart for a thousand years. Today the brilliance and influence have long since faded, leaving a town of tarnished glories, out of time and out of place, so achingly beautiful it's hard not to look for the back of the set.

The city has many names: La Serenissima, Queen of the Adriatic. Venice's nature is dual: water and land, long history and doubtful future, airy delicacy and dim melancholy. When this precious place sinks, the world will be the poorer.
