Walk in Venice – Beautiful Views
Venice is a city in northeastern Italy and the capital of the Veneto region. It is an important destination for tourists who want to see its celebrated art and architecture.
Tourism has been a major part of the Venetian economy since the 18th century, when Venice—with its beautiful cityscape, uniqueness, and rich musical and artistic cultural heritage—was a stop on the Grand Tour.
In the 19th century, Venice became a fashionable centre for the “rich and famous”, who often stayed and dined at luxury establishments such as the Danieli Hotel and the Caffè Florian, and continued to be a fashionable city into the early 20th century.
In the 1980s, the Carnival of Venice was revived. The city has become a major centre of international conferences and festivals.
Today, there are numerous attractions in Venice, such as St Mark’s Basilica, the Doge’s Palace, the Grand Canal, and the Piazza San Marco.
The Lido di Venezia is also a popular international luxury destination, attracting thousands of actors, critics, celebrities, and others in the cinematic industry.
Venice has a rich and diverse architectural style, the most prominent of which is the Gothic style.
Venetian Gothic architecture is a term given to a Venetian building style combining the use of the Gothic lancet arch with the curved ogee arch, due to Byzantine and Ottoman influences.
The style originated in 14th-century Venice. Chief examples of the style are the Doge’s Palace and the Ca’ d’Oro in the city.
The city also has several Renaissance and Baroque buildings, including the Ca’ Pesaro and the Ca’ Rezzonico.
