Venice is the capital of northern Italy’s Veneto region. It is located just 2 hours away from Croatian. The most near Croatian region is Istria.
Venice was founded in the 5th century and gradually spread over 118 islets, making an impression of a floating city. Its stone palaces seemingly rise out of the water. There are no cars or roadways, just canals and boats. The Grand Canal snakes through the city, which is filled with innumerable narrow, mazelike alleys and small squares. Venice became the world's most powerful maritime force in the 10th century. The entire city is an incredible architectural masterpiece; the works of some of the world's most prominent artists like Giorgione, Titian, Tintoretto, etc., can be found even in its smallest buildings.
