More than 150 canals take you on a fascinating tour of this city with your beloved, of which, the Grand Canal is the largest.

The Venetian countryside is often overlooked by many tourists visiting the Italian city and that's the only place where you’d find some truly mesmerising sights of greenery and homes with small vineyards in the front.

If you wish to explore an excellent variety of art ranging from Renaissance-era paintings to contemporary works, the museums of Venice are the best places to visit.

Some of them have been built with a marvellous architecture, which would surely impress you and your spouse.
Many of the tourists visiting Venice head to the beaches facing the Adriatic Sea in Lido for unwinding under the sun.

One of the biggest events in the country, the Carnival of Venice or 'Carnevale di Venezia' is globally renowned for its visually appealing masks. The origin of this carnival can be traced back to the year 1162, when it started with people honouring the victory of Serenissima Repubblica against Patriarch of Aquileia by gathering and dancing in San Marco Square. The celebrations go on for two weeks and are made exciting with several events like masquerade balls and candle-lit parade of boats.
