Piazza San Marco and the Grand Canal are the silent guardians still water of this priceless treasure, symbol of perfect balance between man, nature and sheer magnificence.

The municipality of Venice includes insular territories of the mainland and is articulated around two distinct centers of Venice (at the center of the lagoon) and Mestre (the mainland).

The city of Venice has been for more than a millennium capital of the Republic of Venice, and known in this regard as the "Serenissima", the "Dominant" and "Queen of the Adriatic".

For urban characteristics and for its artistic heritage, Venice is universally considered one of the most beautiful cities in the world and ranks, along with its lagoon, between the Italian UNESCO World Heritage sites: this factor has helped make it the third Italian city (after Rome and Milan) with the highest flow of tourists, mostly coming from outside Italy.

The territory of the municipality of Venice is administratively divided into six municipalities and has sharply divided the two realities of the island Venice (old town and islands) and the mainland.

The historic center of Venice is located in the middle of the homonymous lagoon out of a total of one hundred and eighteen islands, consolidated over the centuries thanks to the wooden pilings, which have allowed the urbanization.
Some of these islands are gathered in organic groups with each other while others are more dispersed.
118 the islets are separated by canals and connected by bridges to pedestrian use.

The total extension of the old town, excluding internal waters, and the major islands, is equal to 797,96 hectares, making it one of the largest historical centers in Italy and Europe.
By calculating the extent of the entire The Municipality, thus including the islands of the lagoon such as Murano and Burano, the total area of ​​the island Venice amounts, excluding internal waters, in 1688,91 hectares.

The historical part of the city is traditionally divided into six districts:

  • Dorsoduro
  • Santa Croce
  • San Polo
  • Saint Mark
  • Cannaregio
  • Castle

The districts of the old city are built around the double bend of the Grand Canal, the main waterway which runs a network of about 158 minor canals.

After World War II were built many new areas in the island of Venice.
New construction are the Sacca Fisola district, the new island of Tronchetto (with 17 hectares of underground lagoon), the Saffa air in Cannaregio etc ..

In the lagoon around the old town are built many islands (some uninhabited today).

Among the major islands (which are also part of the town) is reminiscent of Murano, Burano famous respectively for the processing of glass and lace, Torcello, St. Erasmus, Pellestrina and the long, thin island of Lido with its beaches .

On the mainland there are the two big centers of Mestre and Marghera, and other minor fractions.
These centers have had a big development after the Second World War, as an outlet for the Venice building expansion, which did not have building space in the surrounding lagoon, and therefore have the appearance of modern cities.
In the mainland, there are nearly two-thirds of the population of the municipality.
