Venice, the city of love and carnival consisting of 118 islands divided by canals, is one of the most attractive destinations in the world.

The natural beauties, architecture, canals, bridges and cultural-historical heritage make Venice one of the most visited tourist places in the world in which the famous artist Antonio Vivaldi was born.

The coast of a total of 170 Venetian canals are connected by 400 small and large bridges, while the city center is adorned with St. Mark’s Square, where the basilica of the same name and the Doge Palace are located.

Every corner of Venice describes the past, more precisely the time of the carnivals. Venice is one of the most beautiful cities in the world and is on the UNESCO list of cultural heritage. Some of the most attractive Venetian tourist sites are also the Grand Canal, the Ponto Rialto bridge and the Basilica of St. Mary.

Venice, a glorious city, raised on the sea!
It is the most glorious city on the Adriatic coast. It does not have the grandeur of a capital as it once did, but it had the beauty then and it still is today. Seductive, stunning and indescribable!

“There is a glorious city, built on the sea. The sea, which fills the wide and narrow roads, sometimes descends and sometimes rises; “and the salted kelp crawling on the marble of the city palaces,” once wrote the English poet Samuel Rogers.

He wrote about Venice (Venice), the capital of the former republic of Venice, which included a much wider territory than the city that was built on the water, after the drainage of some sand belts, which were sometimes covered and sometimes revealed by tides and ebbs. of the Adriatic water.

Venice (Venezia, Italian) is a city in northeastern Italy on the Adriatic Sea. The city has about 270 thousand inhabitants and together with the lagoon, is the historical and cultural heritage protected by UNESCO, since 1987.

For a millennium Venice, the capital of the Republic of Venice, was one of the most important political and economic powers, as well as one of the largest cities in Europe, until 1797, when it gained independence.

The noble class of Venice dominated politically because it controlled for a long time the market between Western Europe and the Mediterranean. The city took advantage of the luxury goods market, spices, salt and wheat, and developed, becoming one of Europe’s largest financial centers.

Venice no longer has this political grandeur, but it has the historical, cultural grandeur and the magnificent mosaic, which for most tourists of the world, is a destination that should definitely be seen during life.

The municipality of Venice includes the historic center with about seven square kilometers, as well as the Lagoon with close to 50 islands. Also belonging to this municipality are the islands of Lido and Pellestrina, which separate the lagoon from the Adriatic Sea, and the city units on the mainland Chirignago, Favaro Veneto, Marghera, Mestre and Zelarino.

Qendra historike është e ndarë në gjashtë njësi: San Polo, Dorsoduro, Santa Croce, San Marco, Cannaregio dhe Castello. Ndërsa kanali më i madh, i lundrueshëm, është “Canal Grande”, i cili e ndanë qytetin e vjetër në një pjesë lindore dhe perëndimore.

Qyteti i vjetër është një qytet në ujë. Përbëhet nga 121 ishuj, ndërmjet të cilëve kalojnë matanë kanale me gjerësi të ndryshme. Mirëpo që nga shekulli XIX kanalet u mbushën me dhe ose u mbyllen për transportin ujor. Ky kontrast midis transportit tokësor dhe ujor vazhdon deri sot. Shumica e kanaleve kalohen pak ose fare me varkë. Vetëm “Canal Grande” kryen transportit ujor.

Venice is also an important European cultural center with numerous passenger movements and the second largest seaport in Italy. It is a university center and has dozens of museums, libraries and art galleries. The most famous opera performances have been held since the eighteenth century at the La Finice Theater, concerts at the Circolo Artistico, Tetri at the teatro del Ridotto.

The descriptions of Venice, the former Venice, have no end, but the Italians have a popular saying: “He who has not seen Venice, has not seen Italy.” Therefore, do not guess. Have a nice trip!
