Not coincidentally, Venice and its lagoon are among the world heritage of UNESCO.
So those who love history, architecture and culture in general, cannot give up a trip to the city of canals. Vintage lovers can find solace here, because between a lane and another, there are numerous shops and vintage boutiques.
