Venice is a city sited on a group of 118 small islands separated by canals and linked by bridges, so the water plays a crucial role in transportation. You can explore the city either on foot along narrow streets and over small bridges or you can take a waterbus.
Venice is the world’s only pedestrian city, it’s easily walkable, and the absence of cars makes this a particularly pleasant experience. The main part of Venice is small enough to walk from one end to the other in about an hour, provided you don’t get lost, which could easily happen because of the many narrow winding streets and canals. There are many small bridges but not everywhere, so you always have to find a way to cross the canals.
Venice is full of little stores. The most common local specialities are the Carnival masks.
It was a bit disappointing that the houses are in bad condition and the water in the canals is dirty, but in spite of these the town has a lovely atmosphere so it’s worth to see.
