It is located between the rivers Po and Piave, while along with its lagoon they are a World Heritage Site.
The 'Queen of the Adriatic' has remained unchanged over time, having now acquired a cosmopolitan air while maintaining respect for its history.

Venice hosts events of international interest such as the Venice Carnival with special features that take you back hundreds of years, the Biennale of Venezia, the Venice film festival and many conferences of great interest, attracting visitors from all over the world.
The majestic sights of the city are what will make you feel awe while in the city, while the canals, the gondolas, the songs, the works of art and the historical buildings will make you fall in love with it and remember it as soon as you leave. The St Mark's Basilica, the Doge's Palace, the Grand Canal and the Piazza San Marco are monuments that only when you are there you can understand their value, from the energy they emit with a story that dates back to the 5th century AD.
Famous Venetians who marked the course of the city in later history were the merchant and writer Marco Polo, who with his travels greatly enriched the city's heritage, both in terms of art and culture, exploring the Middle East, China, Japan and Russia, but also Giacomo Casanova who with his special lifestyle marked the culture that accompanies the city. Venice is the city that inspired Shakespeare in his works "Othello" and "Merchant of Venice", and then became a milestone for many great creators who with their art completed the pieces of heritage that the city carries until today.
