Venice has been known for centuries as the “Queen of the Adriatic Sea”. Even today its magnificence has not diminished: visitors get the impression of being in a city which was a protagonist in the history of the Old Continent.
The heart of the ancient Republic of Venice is the famous San Marco square, the homonymous cathedral, the high church tower of the Palazzo Ducale, the colons with the lions, which have always been important symbols of the city.
Nevertheless the feature which makes Venice famous throughout the world is its strong connection with water and the famous canals, together with the campi and calli (the squares and streets) which are interconnected through bridges, under which the countless gondolas continue to navigate. The Rialto Bridge is the most famous among the bridges which cross the Canal Grande, the main canal of the city.
