    Italian is a Romance language derived from Latin and spoken mainly in Europe. Unlike most other Romance languages it retains Latin's contrast between short and long consonants. The Italian language is widely taught in many schools around the world.

Italian vowels are always pronounced very clearly. When vowels are grouped together in a word,
they are always pronounced separately. Most consonants are pronounced as in English. Italian is a phonetic language which means that it is spoken the way it is written. Italian and English share the Latin alphabet.

Venice sightseeing Tip: - take a ride on a vaporetto (water bus) from the train station in Venice all the way down the Grand Canal. Instead of seeing the Piazza San Marco spend your 1st morning at Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari and the Scuola Grande di San Rocco. You can wander through the Dorsoduro sestiere, choosing between visits to Ca' Rezzonico, Gallerie dell' Accademia, the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, and Santa Maria della Salute These attractions are all worth your time. You can end your afternoon with a gelato stroll along the Zattere boardwalk.
