Venice Overview

Venice

The northeastern city of Venice sits on a group of 118 small islands linked by bridges, in a marshy shoreline lagoon between the openings of the Po and Piave Rivers. It is known for its beauty, artworks and architecture. The entire city and its lagoon are listed as a World Heritage Site. The name of Venice comes from the 10th century BC Veneti people and has been known as the “City of Canals”, “Queen of the Adriatic”, “The Floating City”, “City of Water”, “City of Bridges”, and the “City of Masks”. It was a significant maritime power during the Middle Ages and Renaissance and a staging place for the Crusades.
