Nowadays, Venice is also referred to as “Queen of the Adriatic”, “City of Water”, “City of Bridges”, “The Floating City” and “City of Canals”.

The city’s attractions are numerous, but in the case of Venice one can say that the whole city is a sight on its own right and it is no coincidence that Venice and its Lagoon have been deemed a World Heritage Site by UNESCO
