Venice is a city on water built on 118 islands and islets connected by more than 400 bridges. Every island is individually equipped with a water supply facility and church square, and each cherishes specific items from Venice’s priceless artefacts’. The heart of Venice is Piazza San Marco and is the only square in the city as the remaining squares, all smaller, are called campi. Saint Mark’s Basilica dominates the square with its two belfries and the Doge’s palace. One of Venice’s status symbols is the gondola which, according to tradition, says any couple enjoying this rowing boat must kiss when passing beneath each bridge so as to eternally be in love.
