Most tourists appear during the competition of gondolas on Canale Grande where people engourage the teams in whose colors are dressed.
The main communication artery of the city is "Grande Canale”, with a length of 4 km. Along the artery can be find one of the most famous palace“Ca‘s‘ Oro “ - " House of Gold ".

On Canale Grande,the “artery”with turns in Venice, are only three bridges:
“ Academy of Art” - ”Ponte Rialto” and
“ Scalzi Bridge”
Thanks too the Bienal Art, the International Film Festival, is one of the main cultural centers of Italy, continuously flooded by waves of tourists.
Thomas Mann's novella "Death in Venice" was transposed on the screen of "Lucchino Visconti", this movie helped the image of the mysterious atmosphere of the “lagoon city”.
The most visited places in Venice are: -Piazza and Basilica San Marco-
The picture of Doges Palace in Piazza San Marco is the most common postcard. Near Doges Palace is a high tower of the XII century and a clock tower of the fifteenth century . In Doges Palace had worked, over time,all the authorities of the Republic.
