The city laying between the banks of the river Po and the river Piave spreads over 188 islands. The Italians just call it ‘Venezia’ and it is definitely one of the most visited destinations of travellers in the world. The city is located on the Northern end of the Adriatic Sea, thus it is also often called the “Queen of the Adriatic”. Linked by many bridges and canals, Venice offers a truly unforgettable experience to its visitors. It is surely worth the visit even if only for a couple of days – with FlixBus you can get here quickly and at affordable price, which is one more reason for your visit. Although somewhat faded, the buildings of the city still managed to keep their charm over the past centuries. Venice and its lagoons are UNESCO World Heritage sites. If this description sounds tempting and makes you want to hop on a bus right away, do not hesitate, since the city is in danger: due to the increasing amount of marsh and the constantly increasing sea level the city has started sinking and no one can be certain how much longer it will hold up – although experts are of course constantly working on plans to save this wonderful city. During winter months the so-called ‘Aqua Alta’ floods the streets with sea water, sometimes multiple times a year – so you might be better off visiting in spring or autumn. Summer may be too hot here. If you still decide to come in winter, however, you can easily find Aqua Alta maps in all tourist centers that show which parts of the city are most affected by the few-hour-long floods. Though it is best to get to Venice by bus, it makes much more sense to do the sightseeing either on foot or by boat! The smaller islands, such as Murano that is famous for its glass industry, can be reached by scheduled boat rides. But if you are more in the mood for something romantic then get on a gondola, cruise though the canals, and enjoy the sunset view.
