In honor of the most famous City of Carnevale if you are planning a trip?.. why not Venice. Venice is a city in northeastern Italy that is separated by canals and linked by bridges. It is Europe's largest urban car-free so there are only two ways to get around, on foot or by water. To get around the city quickly you can take the vaporetti, which is a water bus that's affordable. The gondola is another way to get around this city if you would like to have a romantic ride along the canals. The gondola is not as affordable as the vaporetti, but people also use them for weddings and other special ceremonies.

Venice is also known for its' art, architecture, and culture and nearby the island of Murano recently reopened its' glass museum. At this museum you can learn about the techniques of glass manufacturing and admire the art of handmade, colorful glass.
