A Wanderer’s Dream

The name of the city Venezia (Venice in Italian) comes from a province of the Roman empire, called Venetia. According to Francesco Sansovino, the author of the first full-scale printed guidebook to Venice, published in 1581, the name derives from the Latin phrase Veni etiam, meaning a place where you can come back again and again and each time see new and beautiful things.
