It is a very beautiful, uniquely romantic city formed of 117 little islands. A gondola ride is possibly the most glamorous way to go around the city. However, the islands are all linked by bridges so don’t worry if you don’t like water, you can still walk. Its narrow winding streets can easily take you away from the crowds of Piazza San Marco and the Basilica.
