As in a great cinematographic production, where the attention to visual details makes sure that every single frame, already carefully studied on an aesthetic level, will contribute to the overall sparkling charm, so the Metropolitan City of Venice will turn out to be a deeply varied, in which every magnificent component will bring additional splendour to its adjoining one, increasing the value of the whole.
Moving towards the north, we will meet our first place, Cavarzere, a peaceful town in the Po Valley that has 14,000 lifes, historically focused on the primary sector, so much that it was called "the Barn of the Serenissima (Il Granaio della Serenissima)" at the time of the Republic of Venice.
On the coastal side we will find Chioggia, exciting in its combination of water and stone, scents, sounds and flavours of the sea. A little more in its north, there is a necklace of small gems, consisting of ancient villages, and some of them still have beautiful city walls to visit, which embellish the serene Venetian countryside: among these stand out Mira, Mirano and Noale.
Remaining on the mainland, leaving the lagoon in the east, there it is the vast and modern Mestre, with its high-rise buildings and a real constellation of companies and services of all kinds, in addition, the magical Sandonatese, also known by the epithet of Eastern Veneto (Veneto Orientale). It is a big area which the city of San Donà di Piave (42,000 inhabitants) is a part of, and it traditionally acts as a trait d'union between the Dogado and the Trevigiano in terms of architecture, food and wine, as well as customs and traditions.
With Portogruaro we reach the northern end of the Metropolitan City of Venice and, indeed, what is in front of us is an enchanting border, made up of an area of 11 municipalities, one more beautiful than the other, where historic stone buildings intertwined with a luxuriant nature.
Descending along the coast, and intersecting our path with the justly famous seaside resorts of Bibione, Caorle, Lido di Jesolo and Punta Sabbioni, we finally reach it, the immeasurable city that for many centuries has enchanted the eyes of visitors from every corner of the world. To completely describe Venice, its canals, bridges, streets and squares, to actually make it justice, in short, are not enough the passionate words from the greatest writers of every age and time, who were inevitably in love with this island. There is nothing sincerer and more honest to do than to advise you to see it with your own eyes.
