Welcome to the romantic City of Venice, the only one place in the world where water and sky mix together finding no boundary. It's a city of captains, seamen, adventures, set in the magic atmosphere in which the biggest painters, musicians and poets expressed their arts. Welcome to the narrow streets called "calli", the small squares called "campi" or "campielli", the canals: 118 islands, more than four hundreds bridges and ...as many cats!!!
