When you come to Venice, the former center of the powerful Republic of Venice, you have the impression that you went back in time. It is a an amazing and unique city built on 118 islands, 170 channels and connected with more than 350 bridges. It is not a surprise that it is considered one of the most romantic cities in the world together with Paris.
Its largest and the most famous canal, the Grand Canal, divides the old part of the city into two parts and a dozen of the most beautiful palaces in the city are situated along its sides. Wandering the streets of Venice, you will often find yourself in deserted, narrow streets, surrounded by grandiose buildings that testify the power of once mighty republic. Charming stone bridges connect both sides of the canal and the entire city seems like a place from a fairytale.
