Venice, the poetic experience of Italy

Well, it may sound hackneyed, but Venice is romance personified. Being the heart of art and architecture, the entire city is marvelled at like a museum. It’s a poetic experience to take a gondola ride with your beloved. Call it an old-fashioned romance or an imitation of a scene from a movie; the canals of Venice remain unruffled. Loiter around Piazza San Marco to enjoy the slow pace of life. For the true essence of Venice, watch the water traffic on the Grand Canal. Spots and sights like Saint Mark’s Basilica, Doge’s Palace and Santa Maria Della Salute are resolute to drive you to the bygone era.
