Venice is a city straight out of a fairy tale. When you hear the name Venice, images of the city's famous canals, gondolas, and carnival masks immediately come to mind. But there is so much more to this stunning city. Venice is the capital of the Veneto region in northeastern Italy, and is made up of an archipelago of 118 small islands located in a lagoon in the Adriatic Sea.

The historic center of Venice has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and is connected by 455 bridges. The majority of the city's population lives on the mainland, in six districts or "municipalità". The insular center of Venice is home to around 60,000 inhabitants, while the mainland is home to 200,000.

Unlike most cities, Venice is completely pedestrian, with no cars, buses, taxis, or trucks. The only mode of transportation is by boat, specifically the well-known vaporettos, which serve as the city's public transportation.

Venice's unique foundation is a fascinating aspect of the city's history. The city is built on millions of logs because the land it is built on is swampy. In order to construct buildings in such an environment, it was necessary to reinforce the foundations with the technique of stilt houses. Millions of thick logs were buried in the mud at the bottom of the lagoon until a hard area called caranto was reached. The weight of the buildings could then be supported on this area.

Unfortunately, the geography of Venice is not very accommodating to those with mobility issues. However, there are circuits designed for mobility devices and the administration is working to make the city more accessible to all. Despite this, Venice is still one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, attracting 19 million visitors in 2019, prior to the pandemic.

Starting from January 16, 2023, Venice will charge an entrance fee for visitors. The fee, ranging from 3 to 10 euros per person, must be reserved a couple of months in advance through the Venice City Hall's official website. Travelers must fill out a form indicating the date of arrival, length of stay, and accommodation arrangements.

In the following sections, we will provide further information on Venice, including accessibility for those with mobility or functional difficulties.
