Soak in the Timeless Romance Venice is one of those places where centuries really can slip away in a labyrinthine lagoon laced with dreamlike canals and bridges. The city itself is a museum; its waterways reflect about 1,400 years of architectural styles, from Romanesque to rococo, and a rich history celebrated in both art (by the likes of Titian and Bellini) and music (Vivaldi and Monteverdi). Venice is a city in which to meander by foot and by boat, to look at centuries of fine paintings and architecture, and to savor the pleasures of the table.
