V - Venice, Italy


Venice (Italian: Venezia) is a city in northern Italy known both for tourism and for industry, and is the capital of the region Veneto.

The city historically was the capital of an independent city-state. Venice has been known as the "La Dominante", "Serenissima",

"Queen of the Adriatic", "City of Water", "City of Masks", "City of Bridges", "The Floating City", and "City of Canals".

Luigi Barzini, writing in The New York Times, described it as "undoubtedly the most beautiful city built by man".


The city stretches across 117 small islands in the marshy Venetian Lagoon along the Adriatic Sea in northeast Italy. The saltwater lagoon

stretches along the shoreline between the mouths of the Po (south) and the Piave (north) Rivers.


The Republic of Venice was a major maritime power during the Middle Ages and Renaissance, and a staging area for the Crusades and the Battle of Lepanto,

as well as a very important center of commerce (especially silk, grain and spice trade) and art in the 13th century up to the end of the 17th century.

This made Venice an extremely wealthy city throughout most of its history.

Venice is also famous for its musical, particularly operatic, history, and its most famous son in this field is Antonio Vivaldi.

X - Xai Xai, Mozambique


Xai-Xai is a city in the south of Mozambique. It is the capital of Gaza Province.

Before independence from Portugal in 1975, Xai-Xai was known as João Belo. João Belo grew and developed under Portuguese rule as a port, agricultural and industrial

centre (rice and cashew were produced and transformed), a provider of services, including a district hospital and banking, and an administrative centre. Tourism was

also important with beaches and hotels.

Xai-Xai is located close to the Indian Ocean, on the Limpopo River. It was hit hard by 2000 floods of the Limpopo, with some buildings 3 metres (10 ft) under water.

However, shortly after the waters receded the town was opened for business again.

The beach of Praia do Xai-Xai, approximately 12 km from Xai-Xai, has been a popular tourist attraction since Mozambican tourism, originally under Portuguese administration,

was first developed before 1975. A coral reef running parallel to the shore offers good snorkeling and protects the beach from strong waves. In addition,

the Wenela Tidal Pool, 2 kilometres (1.2 mi) south of the town, includes a natural tunnel and blow hole that links the pool to the Indian Ocean.
