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.

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."
As a Venetian, when travelling in countries bordering on the Adriatic and the Mediterranean, I always go in search of evidence of the past of my city, which is often little known.
Today, as in the past, everything in Venice still travels by water. The only modern touch being the use of motorized boats. Motorized watercraft of all types ply through the canals in place of more tiring oar-powered ones, but a large number of devotees still go rowing in their free time.
Everything goes by water. It's impossible to imagine the city without this aspect which has defended it in the past, surrounds it, and makes it unique, even while creating some problems.
