Venice is an Italian city of 261 359 inhabitants, approximately 400 000 in the whole urban area, capital of the homonymous metropolitan city and of the Veneto region. It is the first municipality in the region by population and eleventh in Italy and first in Veneto by area. The municipality of Venice includes both island and mainland territories and is articulated around the two main centers of Venice (in the center of the homonymous lagoon) and Mestre (on the mainland).
The city of Venice was for more than a millennium the capital of the Republic of Venice and is known in this respect as the Serenissima, the Dominant and the Queen of the Adriatic. Due to its urban peculiarities and its artistic heritage, Venice is universally considered one of the most beautiful cities in the world and is counted, together with its lagoon, among the Italian UNESCO World Heritage Sites: this factor has contributed to making it the third Italian city (after Rome and Milan) with the highest tourist flow, mostly coming from outside Italy.
