The Adriatic Sea surrounding Venice is rather clean and has no dangerous water species swimming about, so it is the ideal location for kids! Visit the Lido di Venezia especially in the summer vacation for some holiday fun in the sun with your children!
In the late 18th century, when the city of Venice was no longer a republic, it was exposed to French rule at first, however it was then under Austrian rule. Finally, in the late 19th century (1886), it became a part of the country of Italy! If you are in Italy during the holidays, be sure to pass by the charming city of Venice and learn more about its rich history and culture.
The Canal Grande of Venice, also known as Canalasso, is the main canal of the city. When you decide to take a tour on the sea using one of the tour boats or gondolas, you will be on the Grand Canal witnessing the most beautiful sights and scenes Venice has to offer.
The Palazzo Ducale began to decay and deteriorate in the late 19th century so the government funded its restorations. Many of the previous artefacts were sent to the Museo dell Opera and replaced by other works of art and furnishings.
You can see all of the originals at the Opera Museum when you are exploring Venice’s historic heritage.
