Benvenuti a Venezia!

Culture, history, romance – Kleeneze’s Autumn Destination 2014 has it all and so much more. Made up of 118 small islands separated by canals and linked by bridges, the entire city of Venice is listed as a World Heritage site, and no wonder when you take in its renowned beauty.
Throughout the middle ages the Republic of Venice was a major maritime power and its location and many waterways made it a key centre of commerce between the 13th and 17th centuries, particularly for the movement of grain, spices and silk. Venice also played an important role during the Renaissance period and is known for many important artistic movements during this time of great cultural change.
Venice today allows visitors to absorb the history and culture that has shaped the city over centuries through its elegant architecture, spectacular artwork and intricate canal network. From St Mark’s Basilica to the Grand Canal, The Doge’s Palace to The Bridge of Sighs, the city astounds and awes at every corner.
Painters, sculptors, writers, architects and designers have all been inspired by the beauty, history and atmosphere of Venice, and we know that in November 2014 you will be too.
