VENICE IS POPULAR IN ITALY AND WORLDWIDE THANKS TO THE BUSINESS OF THE GLASS ARTWORKS.

VISIT THE FENICE OPERA HOUSE:
IT IS ONE OF THE MOST FAMOUS AND RENOWNED LANDMARKS IN THE HISTORY OF ITALIAN THEATRE. LA FENICE HAS BECOME THE SITE OF MANY FAMOUS OPERATIC PREMIERES. ITS NAME REFLECTS ITS ROLE IN PERMITTING AN OPERA COMPANY TO “RISE FROM THE ASHES”. A FIRE DESTROYED THE FENICE OPERA HOUSE IN 1996, BUT IT WAS REBUILT AND RE-OPENED IN NOVEMBER 2004.

SHOPPING IN THE WORLD’S MOST FAMOUS BOOKSHOP:
TONS OF BOOKS, MAGAZINES AND MAPS PLACED INSIDE BATHTUBS, WATERPROOF BINS, AND IN A FULL-SIZE GONDOLA TO PREVENT THEM SINK DUE TO VENICE’S CONSTANT FLOODING.
