Why Venice?

13 year-old Maja is not thrilled to spend her vacation with her parents visiting her mother´s Italian pen pal in Venice. But the boring trip quickly becomes an adventure when she accidentally travels into the 17th century with Raffael, the pen pal´s teenage son. There they meet Rachel Levy who lives under poor and dangerous circumstances. It is a time when the Lagoon city is a rich and powerful Sea-faring Nation. But Venice is also a place full of secrets and intrigues. Maja, Rachel and Rafael and their friends must proove that Rachel´s father is innocent and uncover a scheme that threatens to blow up Venice´s ships production and with it the security and the future of the Serenissima.

But how will they return to their home here and now?
