My visit to the beautiful Venice in Italy with his
famous gondola's i will never forget in my life. Racing through these

boat did not have a hidden self-propulsion system and a hovercraft
More similarities with the movie are the nice Italian woman who asked my
name, and i said snowman....mister snowman and the way i drink martinis,
yep shaken, not stirred.
If your visiting Venice in February then you have a big chance to be
there with the well known Venice carnival parades, each year with a
specific theme. In the third week of July there is also the Venice
Redentore Festival which is a religious festival that will end with a

Venice is also known for the Venice Historical Regatta, the
