About Venice

Venice is one of Italy's and the world's most famous cities, mainly thanks to the city being built on islands and that many of the streets here are water in which you take your self around by boat or gondola rides. The city is built on the water on millions of wooden poles that are hammered into the mud at the bottom. You can’t take your car here. You have to go by boat, water taxi, gondola or by walking. The streets are often quite uneven and hilly, so for the elderly it can be a bit cumbersome.
