is known as La Serenissima, or the Serene Republic. One look
around the city will help you understand why. At first you may
not recognize the absence of sound that fills your ears. But
then it hits you - there are no cars here. As you walk down
the middle of the street, you’ll marvel at the beauty around
every street corner. It seems like the entire city has been
lifted straight out of a painting. There is nowhere else in
the world where earth and water exist together so freely, with
neither element trying to assert its dominance. Couples from
all over flock to the world’s most romantic city.
Of course, the secret is out, and the
throngs of tourists do detract from the city’s pristine
visage. During the summer, Piazza San Marco is teeming with
people, so many in fact that it seems like the city will sink
into the water that runs through it. In actuality, the city is
sinking, at an average of five inches every twenty years.
Unless something is done to keep Venice afloat, the city may
join Atlantis at the bottom of the sea.
Venice’s fortunes are tied so closely to the sea, it must be
noted that Venice loses some of its charm in the autumn
months, when high tides flood some of the best parts of the
city, including the city’s center, Piazza San Marco. On the
hottest summer days, the water begins to smell, despite the
city’s best efforts to keep its waterways clean. However, do
not let these small inconveniences distract you from all of
the good things Venice has to offer. This is the one location
in the world where the city itself is the attraction. You can
spend an entire day walking around and sitting outside,
stopping for lunch or some gelato, and not step foot in a
single “attraction.” You will still be enchanted, having
experienced the most picturesque city in the world.
