For most people, Venice is synonymous with romance. Of course there are detractors, but most people love this city, imagining it as a symbol of love, inspired by stories of love sheltered by the walls of buildings shriveled.
But nobody can deny there is something with this place, something that continues to fascinate generations of tourists, lured by fame and the history of the city that floats on water.
A small town occupied by water, a lone patch of land situated in the northern Italian realm. An archaic world seemed wrapped in centuries-old mystery stories. It was said the most romantic city in the world and not something that could be true.
To wake up early and carols to the streets of Venice to climb bridges bathed in rays that emerge only after the old buildings, wonderful to see gondolas floating on green waters of the Grand Canal ... So one morning show in Venice, 'Queen of the Adriatic ", a morning shrouded in perfect silence, broken only by the sound waves hit while slightly outdated buildings. Venice, La Serenissima ", the city canals and palaces, has a dual nature: water and earth, a rich past and a doubtful future, an aerial delicacy and a vague melancholy. If the city will sink as it is expected, will be more poor people.
For a thousand years, was one of the most influential maritime powers and shopping centers. Today, the glory of Venice died easily, leaving behind a city with a fascinating story, a perfect beauty.
