Rio del Remedio in Venice, Italy
Venice (Italian: Venezia) is the capital city of the Veneto region in northern Italy. As of January 2004, the city had an estimated population of 271,251, with an estimated 1.6 million living in the Padua-Venice metropolitan area.

Venice is built on many small islands in a marshy saltwater lagoon, and is famous for its canals and links to the sea. Additionally for 1,100 years, from 697, until occupied by Austria in 1797 during the Napoleonic Wars, Venice was independent republic, The Most Serene Republic of Venice (Italian: Serenissima Repubblica di Venezia), and was for many centuries one of the leading maritime powers in the Adriatic and eastern Mediterranean.

Venice: Prince of the Adriatic, Queen of romantics, King of canals and palaces. Venice is pure Italian opera.

Like the famous Fenice Theatre, twice resurrected after devastating fires, Venice continues to flirt with disaster. The Venetian Lagoon which swells and floods Venice each year during the acque alta threatens to do so permanently unless a solution is found. But Venice continues to hold her head above water like a bejeweled diva swooning in the sea. Masked revelers during carnival seem like theatrical extras to a city that is always center stage. For the first time visitor, the pageantry of Venice is intoxicating. For the return visitor, it is addicting.

Famous for its Venetian art, baroque palaces, mercantile history, and regional cuisine, Venice is a city that must be experienced on foot. Gradually, in dozens of churches, museums, and palaces, the extraordinary richness of Venice is revealed. So much to see, it will strain your neck and feet by the end of the day! You will still be able to count on your STREETWISE® Venice Map to get you back to your hotel or Palazzo.

The island of Murano has been a center of glass making since the late 13th century when it was ruled that glassmaking be moved from Venice out to the island to protect the city from fire. Glass makers were famous for being the first to craft mirrors and were also know for the curlicue ornate chandeliers they produced. Glass making continues today and tours of the factories and their ubiquitous gift shops are widely available. The inset map of Murano will help you escape the tour and find a lovely spot for lunch.

The pocket size map of Venice is laminated for durability and accordion folding for effortless use. To enhance your visit to Venice, pick up a Michelin Green Guide Venice and the Veneto, full of suggested itineraries, highlighting three-star attractions, options for entertainment, shopping, staying, dining and including detailed information on places you shouldn't miss (Grand Canal, Piazza San Marco, St Mark's Basilica, Doges Palace, Accademia).

Product Description:
A spellbinding new portrait of one of the world’s most beloved cities, from the author of Istanbul

La Serenissima. Its breathtaking architecture, art, and opera ensure that Venice remains a perennially popular destination for tourists and armchair travelers alike. Yet most of the available books about this magical city are either facile travel guides or fusty academic tomes. In Venice, renowned historian Thomas F. Madden draws on new research to explore the city’s many astonishing achievements and to set 1,500 years of Venetian history and the endless Venetian-led Crusades in the context of the ever-shifting Eurasian world. Filled with compelling insights and famous figures, Venice is a monumental work of popular history that’s as opulent and entertaining as the great city itself.
