Colourful Burano, Venice
From the 13th to 17th century Venice was an important port and commercial trading centre. Today there is still much evidence of the extraordinary wealth and power that the Venetians amassed during the 400 year dominance of the region by the Venetian Republic. Undoubtedly Venice is one of the most beautiful historic cities in the world, stretching across 117 small islands in what was once just a marshy lagoon. Students of history, art and Italian will be inspired and amazed by Venice's beautiful architecture, grand palazzi and fine art collections.
