An extraordinary city with a rich cultural history, Venice is more than just an engineering marvel. Check out our latest Video of the Week and soak up the scenery.

With the most artistic masterpieces per square kilometer, Venice could be forgiven for resting on its laurels. But instead, this is a city where the well of creative inspiration continues to overflow – in defiance of both the 19th century romantics who predicted its decay, and the acqua alta (high tide). Known for its peculiarities – and apparently all the richer for it – a trip to Venice is time to savour. As a traveller one always dreams of exploring this city – with its rich history and enriching atmosphere.
