Presentation

The city of Venice, capital of the Veneto region, rests on a hundred or so small islands in the lagoon of the same name in the Adriatic Sea. For more than a thousand years the powerful capital of the Most Serene Republic of Venice, it is known worldwide for its insular nature and the presence of canals instead of roads, the main one being the Grand Canal. The heart and symbol of the city is St. Mark's Square, surrounded by elegant porticoes and dominated by St. Mark's Basilica, with its five domes, bronze horses, and rich mosaics and interiors. The basilica is connected through the Porta della Carta to the Doge's Palace, whose Hall of the Great Council was the seat of government for centuries. Opposite the palace stands the bell tower of St. Mark's, made of red Verona marble.
