Trip Over to Venice – Italy

A Watery Masterpiece

This amazing historic World Heritage Unesco paradise caught between the Italian mainland and the Adriatic Sea has all the signs of its Roman and Byzantine beginings, through the era of maritime power in the 10th centry to the human endeavour that keeps the city above the water now, all there to be explored on foot or by boat. Getting lost in Venice is the only way to explore and be continually amazed by what you find.

Trip Over to Murano and Burano from Venice
