With its Gothic architecture and romantic waterways, Venice is an extraordinary setting for a luxury lifestyle.
While this city instinctively inspires images of gondolas and the their floats, the maze of canals throughout Venice is more than a tourist attraction: the canals infuse the city with a charming nautical ambiance. Composed of 117 small islands, with a long and fascinating history, Venice provides a stress-free and relaxing lifestyle simply ambling through its traffic-free alleyways and enjoying the view from any one of its 400 bridges. The annual events are magical in their own right: The Regata Storica is a spectacular historical water pageant preceding an annual rowing competition, while The Carnival of Venice is an exciting event where fantasy reigns, fantastic costumes are donned and exotic balls go on way into the night.
An international art city, the Venice Biennale art exhibition which encompassing the prestigious Venice Film Festival, is one of the most prestigious events in the world. Ballet, opera and symphony concerts take center stage at the Teatro La Fenice opera house while the city’s variety of museums, including the Palazzo Ducale and the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, showcase Renaissance paintings to contemporary masterpieces. Few places can compete with Venetian architecture, while tennis courts, private river boat moorings and parkland grounds complete the picture and give new meaning to la dolce vita, the sweet life.
