About the city 🌇

Legendary Venice, located in the northeastern part of Italy, where the Adriatic Sea waves in towards the lagoon and where we find one of the most romantic and characteristic cities in the world.

The Queen of the Adriatic, as Venice is also called, is located in a lagoon next to the Adriatic, where the city is built on 100 small islands, supported by millions of poles and over 400 bridges. The many attractions of the city, that come like pearls on a string, makes your study experience ever-fascinating.

In the heart of the city, the canals run under the many characteristic bridges, where one gondola after another sails with the tourists and couples in love. Here you will experience large monuments, palaces, large squares and narrow streets, where history and art meet with the beautiful Adriatic Sea. All in all, something that has secured Venice a place on the UNESCO World Heritage List since 1987.

The city's atmosphere, culinary dining experiences, strong coffee and cozy wine bars will undeniably send all your senses to seventh heaven. Your view of life quality will change forever if you get the honor of calling Venice your home city.
