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.

The art of chemistry defies natural solidity to make it fluid, and jewellery artist Fulvia Notari turns it into precious wearable sculptures that you will find at SV Lab boutique. Colourful glass fills the shelves of nearly every shop in Venice, but not all of it is art. Notari’s Antares pieces mix the age-old tradition of Murano glass-blowing with contemporary trends in jewellery design, with an added touch of unique ethnicity. Find her gems at SV Lab, where you can also browse high-style Italian clothing and designer goods that you (and any Italian) will want to take home.
What about taking a stroll surrounded by a vibrant and historical atmosphere? The Jewish Ghetto, one of the residential parts of the city, where the few Venetians left in town still live, lies in the heart of the non-tourist district of Cannaregio. A city within a city, where you’ll learn how the Jewish community lived here over the centuries.
Sometimes I like to play tourist in my own town. The camera strung around my neck let's me blend in with the colourful mass of summer tourists. According to the latest statistics, each year nearly 20 million foreigners peacefully invade the alleys and small squares of Venice.
There are few areas of the city that they don't get to these days, although it may be in smaller numbers than the crowds visiting the main tourists destinations like Piazza San Marco or the Rialto.
