About this Destination
Set on a private island in the Venetian lagoon, this palatial resort is a 13-minute ride via a boat shuttle from Piazza San Marco and a 9-minute boat shuttle ride from the Bridge of Sighs.
No city is quite as instantly recognizable as Venice, with its mix of Italian Renaissance art and Byzantine-influenced architecture, another legacy of its past ties, in both commerce and war, with the East. Music also plays an important part in the character of Venice and the Venetians.
Venetian is a Romance language spoken by about 2 million people mainly in Venice and the surrounding area, and also in Trieste, Croatia, Slovenia, Mexico and Brazil. The language is more closely related to French and Spanish than it is to Italian.
The currency used in Venice is the Euro.
Weather and Climate
The climate of Venice, the capital of the Veneto region, is moderately continental, similar to that of the Po Valley, with cold, moist winters and hot, muggy summers, but it's slightly tempered by the Adriatic Sea.
