Beautiful Venice, the "city of canals", is the capital of the region of Veneto and of the province of Venice in Italy. Venice is one of the few cities in the world that can be truly described as unique. In addition to its famed canal network, over an extraordinarily long period the city was embellished with monuments of rare splendour that today make it a tourist attraction like none other in the entire world.
