Venice Vacations
Have you ever wondered what it's like to live inside a watercolor painting? Visit Venice to find out. Built entirely on water, this ethereal city is a soft melding of imagination and reality, where ornate bridges lace through enchanting canals and the masquerade balls, processions, and street performances of Carnival make surrealism a sure thing. Dashing gondoliers, bold glass-blowers, and nimble-fingered lace-makers all still display their time-honored trades in this 100-island lagoon, while the pigeons that roam San Marco Piazza in the shadow of Venice's largest bell tower seem as unchanged as the churches dating back 1,000 years. The Bridge of Sighs inspires modern-day visitors as much as it did Lord Byron ages ago, and the works of Vivaldi and Monteverdi continue to astound as the notes ring out through the concert halls, an accompaniment to the work of art that is the Floating City.
