Venice is a city in northern Italy known both for tourism and for industry. Venice has been known as the "Queen of the Adriatic", "City of Water", "City of Bridges", "The Floating City", and "City of Canals” and has been described as undoubtedly the most beautiful city built by man. The city stretches across 117 small islands
in the marshy Venetian Lagoon along the Adriatic Sea in northeast Italy. Venetian villas
make the perfect vacation rental when staying in this romantic city.
Venice was a major maritime power during the Middle Ages and Renaissance, and a staging area for the Crusades and the Battle of Lepanto, as well as a very important center of commerce and art in the 13th century up to the end of the 17th century. This made Venice a wealthy city throughout most of its history. It is also known for its several important artistic movements, especially the Renaissance period. It really is a perfect place for a holiday with villa rentals and apartment rentals
for all types of travelers.

Venice is one of the most important tourist destinations in the world, due to the city being one of the world's greatest and most beautiful cities of art
. In the 19th century, it became a fashionable centre for the rich and famous, often staying or dining at luxury establishments. In the 1980s, the Carnival of Venice was revived and the city has become a major centre of international conferences and festivals, such as the prestigious Venice Biennale and the Venice Film Festival
, which attract visitors from all over the world for their theatrical, cultural, cinematic, artistic and musical productions.
Today there are numerous attractions in Venice, such as St Mark's Basilica, the Grand Canal, and the Piazza San Marco
, to name a few. The Lido di Venezia is also a popular international luxury destination, attracting thousands of actors, critics, celebrities and mainly people in the cinematic industry. There is an endless choice of lodging and accommodation options in Venice (villa rental, condo rental, apartment rental, etc.). Owner Direct will help match you to the perfect accommodation for your holiday.
Venice is best when caught between acts, after the day trippers rush off to beat afternoon traffic, and before cruise ships dump dazed newcomers off in Piazza San Marco with three hours to see all of Venice before lunch. Those visitors may never get to see Venice in its precious downtime, when gondoliers warm up their vocal chords with scorching espresso on their way to work, and mosaic artisans converge at the bar for tesserae shoptalk over a spritz (prosecco-based drink).
