Venice was founded around the year 528, and it was the capital of the Republic of Venice for eleven centuries from 697 until 1797.

Venice outstanding features are the canals.

Yes, there are canals, and there is a lot of water in Venice. As there are no cars, the main transportation within the old city is made by small boats or just by walking.

Because it is located on a lagoon, between the estuaries of the Po and the Piave river, Venice is famous for this unique feature, as well as its architecture and cultural legacy. Venice and its lagoon are listed as a World Heritage site by UNESCO.

To visit Venice and walk around the city is very easy and you’ll have a great time.

On this page, I gathered 70 photos of Venice from places which are undoubtedly the city’s major tourist attractions. I hope you enjoy.
