1. Venice, Italy

We arrived at the first place. The city you must visit, Venice. If you did not know, this beautiful city of Italy is sinking, so you’d better visit it until it’s too late. Here you will find small islands that are connected by bridges and channels that play the role of streets, on wich gondolas are used instead of cars. This city is one of the main cultural centers of Europe.
