ITALY_Chioggia, Italy

Chioggia is a lil sis of Venice. It has same like Venice structure of town: few canals that cut the town, crossed with bridges, narrow calli (alleyways) that always ended with water, venetian windows and laundry,drying on air. All the rest is different. Venice is royal, famous, sparkling and lives from mass tourism and arts (mainly). Chioggia is a fisherman village - by mistake marked as "a town". It has one main street used as a weekly marked and prominade, few churches, variety of cafes & snackeries and complicated connecton by public transport to other places. In season it used as a bedroom of Venice, but the main difference - town lives from fishing, actually Chioggia is one of Italy's major fishing ports.
