The beating heart of a vast territory, a metropolitan city, which stretches from the coast with the uniqueness of its geographical environments to the city of art that is teeming with foundations, universities and museums, from the excellence of its typical products to the industrial areas still today first rate and full of potential and opportunities. Venice is a lagoon. But it is also Mestre. And it is also Marghera. It is historical center and smart city. At the center of a transport system that sees intersecting itself among the most advanced infrastructures in Europe

  • the Venice airport system, which includes the airports of Venice and Treviso and records over 12.2 million passengers, confirming the already consolidated position of the third Italian airport hub after Rome and Milan;

  • the tourist Port of Venice, a cruise hub of primary importance that accommodates up to 12 ships at the same time thanks to 3,5 kilometers of docks which has progressively increased the number of passengers to reach the quota of 2 million;

  • the Industrial Port and Area of Porto Marghera 2,200 hectares wide, with 884 firms, 11,060 workers, 27 billion Euro of yearly turnover and an extimated value of the infrastructures of 6,4 billion Euro;

  • hydrofoils and fast ships that connect the historic center with the Upper Adriatic;

  • the railway network which has progressively increased the quantity and quality of service with the integration of high speed trains;

  • Nicelli airport at the Lido for ultralights, considered the third among the 10 most beautiful airports in the world;

  • the motorway networks that make it strategic with respect to the North East road network.

At the top of the Adriatic Sea and at the crossroads of the main European transport corridors, Venice is a place to admire monuments, visit a rich and varied network of museums, take part in glamorous events. Venice is the capital of the Biennale, considered among the most famous and prestigious cultural institutions in the world, which gives life to important international exhibitions of contemporary art.
But it is also a place where everything is still done by hand: the thousand-year-old Murano glass, the Burano and Pellestrina lace, the fascinating tradition of masks and costumes for the Carnival, the fine craftsmanship of the gondola that requires an inimitable technique.
Venice is the place of natural beauties, of landscape, of the islands that frame it, each one with its own peculiarity. It is a seaside resort in the Lido of Venice, an island where over 262 Art Nouveau buildings stand out, representing a real architectural heritage. And it is also one of the largest coastal industrial areas in Europe, an industrial hub where companies are established, such as refineries and shipyards that have written the history of the world navy.
