Venezia is the Queen of the Adriatic, La Serenissima, the mercantile and maritime Republic of 1,000 years, a vast museum, a triumph of human will over Nature, once a beehive of espionage, the Xanadu, luxury and pleasure capital of Europe, the Mecca of extraordinary personalities and zenith of all Grand Tours … yet even today, Venice remains in so many ways, an enigma. Explore Venice's complexities, contradictions and paradoxes and discover some of its many secrets and celebrate the city of myth, mystery, might and majesty that has captured the imagination of dreamers and travelers alike for hundreds of years. Includes antipasto, Italian wine, beer & soda.
