Venice, a floating city that seems to have remained unchanged for centuries. Founded on 117 islands, the capital of the Veneto region continues to be one of the most sought-after locations for luxury real estate and there is fierce competition to buy an apartment in one of the prestigious Venetian Gothic palaces which line the Grand Canal. However, your patience will be rewarded at carnival time when you organize a dinner at your exclusive property surrounded by stuccoed ceilings and frescoed walls before taking a water taxi or gondola to join the celebrating crowds. The neighbourhoods to consider when looking for a luxury home are tranquil Dorsoduro with the Accademia and Guggenheim museums, Castello which is close to the Biennale and the basilica of S. Giovanni e Paolo, San Polo with its antique shops, Santa Croce and some areas of Cannaregio. Further inland take a look at the luxury estates and Palladian villas along the Riviera del Brenta. Don't forget to join the international community which meets each year at the Lido di Venezia for the famous Venice Film Festival.
