Venice: The Medieval Romantic Destination

Around the World

This romantic destination is located in the city of Italy. Venice is also, the capital city of Veneto Region.

LOCATION

Venice is a beautifully crafted city amidst a group of 118 small islands, that are internally separated by various canals and architecturally linked with each other by bridges.

The shallow Venetian lagoon possesses this beauty.

VENETIAN LAGOON

This enclosed bay of the Adriatic Sea hailing from northern Italy holds the beautiful Venice.

Adriatic Sea:

The Adriatic Sea is the water body that separates the Italilian Peninsula from the Balkan Peninsula and the Apennine Mountains from the Dinaric Alps.

This is the northern most arm of the Mediterranean region.

PRIDE

  • The Venetian Lagoon and a particular part of the city are a part of the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
  • Venice has been ranked the most beautiful city in the world in the year 2016.

 

CLIMATE

Venice possesses a Humid sub-tropical climate, as surveyed by one of the most widely used climatic classification systems in the world, the Koppen Climate Classification.

Humid Sub-tropical Climatic:

This is the climatic condition that gives hot and humid summers, while the winters are mildly cool.

This kind of weather conditions is usually found in the coastal regions or somewhere near the coasts as it is sharply influenced by the adjacent water body, as is evident by it’s behaviour.

The winter , hence can be ideal for planning out a vacation, only if the summers are thought to be avoided.

 

GONDOLA

The gondola is the classical Venetian boat.

It is a flat bottomed traditional rowing boat.

Without the naming of which, the description of this city would lay rather incomplete. This amazing boat adds to the beauty of this place.

The gondola is nowadays mostly used by the tourists and by for weddings, funerals and other ceremonies. This transportation is mainly used to cross the Canal Grande in the absence of a nearby bridge.

I guess this journey truly romantic and interesting.

 

OTHER TRANSPORTATION

Venice is an urban car free area. This adds to the reason why Venice is nothing , but an unique destination in Europe. This is a successfully functioning city without the use of a single motor car or truck , that too in the 21st century.

Waterways:

Venice is basically the conjugation of many small islands, which significantly makes the waterways play a precious role.

Public Transport :

The chief public transportation of this region is the motorised water buses.

Trains:

There are trains, both regional and national,; some even connecting Rome to Venice.
