Venice is a beautiful city filled with canals instead of roads, having been built in a lagoon on top of 118 small islands in the 5th century.

Originally fleeing from barbarians, ancient Venetians settled on these islands. The buildings in the city are works of art in themselves, designed and built by great artists. The city still floods and is slowly sinking into the sea, which is evident in many of the buildings as anyone can see the water rising up above where it was meant to be.

Visitors can get an idea of how powerful the Marine Republic of Venice was its height, with the amazing piazzas, palaces, and bridges that are scattered throughout the city.
