  7. Is Venice worth visiting?

    Yes, Venice is one of the most beautiful cities in Italy, where you can discover some of the oldest churches in the world and see historical Biblical artefacts in person. It is also a place of great natural beauty where you can float through the magical canals that wind their way through the city. Gondola rides are also a must when you are visiting.
