Venice (Italian Venezia), Venetian Venesia is the capital of the northern Italian region of Veneto. Its historic core lies on islands in the shallow Venetian lagoon, separated from the Adriatic Sea by the narrow spit of the Lido; more recent parts of the city were built on the mainland of Mestre. Once a maritime and commercial power and a centre of glassmaking, Venice is still of great historical, cultural, social and administrative importance today. In the Middle Ages it was the centre of the Venetian Republic, today it is the centre of its region and has a rich cultural life. Since 1987, Venice and the entire surrounding lagoon have been a UNESCO World Heritage Site as one of Italy's most visited destinations.
