Is there anything more romantic than losing yourself in Venice? The world’s most magical city is a tangle of quiet streets, each instincts guide through the calli and the campi, over the city’s bridges and into its breathtaking churches. And seeing the view of the lagoon at with a story and a treasure to be discovered. The best means of transportation is your feet, so wear comfortable shoes and let your sunset is an unforgettable experience. Summer is a great time to visit, but it does get hot, but to take a break from the heat and refresh yourself, there’s always the Lido beach, one of the most beautiful stretches of sand in Italy.

I have walked along "Riva del Vin" (Wine Street) without getting drunk and on "Rio Terà degli Assassini" (the assassin's street) without being afraid. I've also gone on "Ponte dei Pugni" (the Bridge of Fists) without having to be on guard or along the "Calle del Vento" (Windy Street) without being cold.
Admiring Venice from a different perspective is what I often like to do. It allows discovering the city from another angle even for someone who was born there like me.
It seems that the word "ombra" (shade) used to refer to a glass of wine comes from the fact that in the past, wine was served at benches set in the "ombra" or shade of the belfry tower. It was common to say, "Let's have a drink in the 'ombra' under the belfry tower." The phrase shortened and stuck with a glass of wine simply becoming an “ombra."
