Venice is one of the most beautiful cities in Italy and the world. It is not without reason that many cities bear the title "Venice of the East" or "Venice of the North" in the style of the lagoon city. The city of Venice is located on 118 islands connected by more than 400 bridges. The world-famous canals cross the city and account for its special charm
