Ever since the fall of the ‘Most Serene Republic,’ and the accompanying loss of political and military power, the city of Venice has remained in a kind of strange unchanging stasis. Like some sort of 18th Century Disneyland, it has existed as a tourist and cultural destination ever since. A city of contradictions, Venice and the modern Venetians deftly balance their own cultural authenticity while catering to millions of tourists from throughout the world. From the outside it appears like a snowglobe, tiny delicate intricate models surrounded by water.

The intrepid travelers step inside this snowglobe and strike out into the heart of Venice to explore this dichotomy. They examine in detail the eclectic collection of flesh, marble, timber and water that come together to create this most singular city. In so doing they catch a glimpse of the serenity that holds these opposing forces at bay and binds them into one unlikely and yet glorious whole.
