Venice is the capital of the Italian province of Veneto, with about 270,000 inhabitants.

The city is known as the ‘Water City’ and the ‘Bridge City’ and is considered one of the most romantic cities in the world. Venice is located in the north of the Adriatic Sea in the so-called swampy Venetian lagoon in the Gulf of Venice. Due to its location in history, the city itself was the most geographically convenient port, which led it to the title of the largest port city in the world back in the 15th century. In that time, Venice represented the city where world trade took place and reached its peak during this period. The 15th century was extremely significant for Venice, because at that time new buildings, new architecture began to sprout due to its significant location but also the huge daily attendance due to trade, and the city became more and more luxurious and beautiful year after year. In the 18th century, Venice was already called one of the most beautiful and elegant cities in the world, all thanks to its specific architecture, art and literature that embraced and inspired the entire city. Although the flourishing of this beautiful Italian coastal town took place in the 15th century, Venice still breathes and inspires its visitors in the same way today. Its bridges and canals, numbering over a hundred, give the city this specialty, and also, a gondola ride overlooking Venice’s marvelous architecture can’t be experienced anywhere, can it? Venice today has over 400 gondolas that offer their visitors wide variety of romantic driving programs on different channels, and if you come to Venice and do not ride the gondola, it is just like visiting Paris without seeing the Eiffel Tower. The gondola can accommodate up to 6 people, reservations are possible at several locations in the city as the price varies and depends on the gondola.
