MAIN HIGHLIGHTS
Carnival in Venice
One of the world’s most famous carnivals, the Venetian Carnival dates back to 1162 originating from a Shrovetide ceremony. For ten days before Lent the streets of Venice are flooded with masked people in full costume. Originally, this was a time for festivities when Venetians allowed themselves to break every law before the austerity of Lent and remain anonymous while doing so with the use of their masks.
notes
Venice
Venice is one of the most interesting and lovely places in the world. This sanctuary on a lagoon is virtually the same as it was six hundred years ago, which adds to the fascinating character. Venice has decayed since its heyday and is heavily touristed (there are slightly more tourists than residents), but the romantic charm remains. A walk through narrow calli (paths), across the 400 bridges that span the 114 canals will reviel modern live an old world charisma.
notes
Venice Water Bus
The Vaporetto get both locals and visitors to the places they want and need to go throughout Venice. Because traveling the canals is the easiest way to get around the city, the water bus have long been the most efficient and cost-effective modes of transportation, aside from walking.

Gondola Ride
Float beneath bridges, beside cafes, under balconies as your gondolier sweeps you down the Grand Canal. A relaxing and romantic gondola ride reveals all the charm, excitement and passion that is Venice — and The Venetian. € 36
Murano Glas
Glassmakers, on the island of Murano in the Venetian Lagoon, developed or refined technologies such as crystalline glass, glass with threads of gold, multicolored glass, and imitation gemstones made of glass. They also were the only people in Europe who knew how to make glass mirrors. Their virtual monopoly on quality glass lasted for centuries and still today Murano's artisans do produce beautiful works of contemporary art from glass.
