Venice is home to more outdoor fountains than most cities. We just love water! Just like the city of Rome, our fountains are truly works of art. Whether you are taking a walk, dining alfresco at a restaurant, or enjoying a ride through our city, you are bound to see a variety of fountains, each one unique in its style and size. Ornate statues surround some, while other fountains light up the night. Children run through them, plein air artists use them as their muse, and many residents and visitors just appreciate their magnificent beauty. The City of Venice is known for its Italian architectural style and grace, and the fountains of Venice add drama, intrigue, and true watery artistry to our city on the gulf. Enjoy the fountains of Venice.
