It is not clear as to Venice’s origin but, some historians believe refugees of the roman Empire settle here first. The Republic of Venice existed as a trading power throughout the Mediterranean from 697-1797. During that time Venice prospered trading with the Byzantine Empire and the Muslim world in the eastern Mediterranean. Spurred by Marco Polo’s travels to east Asia the appeal of Asian goods ignited and appetite in the rest of Europe that would initiate the age of Exploration.

Its island location in the middle of the Venice lagoon make it a unique city of canals and bridges. With over 400 bridges on various islands a visit here is a one of a kind. For this, Venice has been one of the most desired cities to visit in Europe for decades.
