The Gondolas, one of the most iconic symbols of the city of Venice, have been parading along the city's canals since the Middle Ages, bringing a centuries-old tradition back to life. The magic happens in the famous Squeri, places where all Gondolas are created and where the Venetian master carpenters attribute a symbolic and unique meaning to every detail.
“Among the various sounds, the voice of the gondolier is the dominant note in Venice. There are no noises here, apart from those produced by man, no screeching of wheels or clunking of hooves. Everything is vocalised, personal. It can be strongly affirmed that Venice is the city of conversation”
- Henry James, 1882
Over the centuries, Venice has been a crossroads of trade and not only European trade. Venetian merchants travelled throughout Europe selling and buying fabrics, precious cloths, spices and luxury items. A distant time that lives on today in the Venetian streets with artisan shops and little luxury stores. This elegant and refined city offers shoppers all the most famous luxury brands. Calla Larga XXII Marzo is one of the most important main luxury shopping streets in Venice and takes its name from the Proclamation of the Venetian Republic during the period of the Risorgimento, on 22 March 1848.
One of places that symbolises the city, Punta della Dogana with the Basilica della Salute, skilfully combines a historic and symbolic location with the contemporary. From here, you can admire a spectacular sunset in the total silence, beyond the noise of the alleys, that will leave an unforgettable moment impressed on your mind.
