Venice Travel guide
Venice : Michelin's recommendations
Venice is a city impossible to describe coldly because beyond some notorious monuments, glamorous landscapes, it is fundamentally a state of mind. It is a city in which one should know how to get lost, from calli to sotoportego, from fondamenta tocampo along endless strolls full of surprises and unexpected experiences. Silence reigns over these passageways which are ignored by the herds of tourists: Venice then starts to disclose its magic and some of its mysteries.
