Venice, The Floating City
Venice, the capital of northern Italy’s Veneto region, is built on more than 100 small islands in a lagoon in the Adriatic Sea. It has no roads, just canals including the Grand Canal thoroughfare lined with Renaissance and Gothic palaces. The city throughout the history has been a popular setting for fictional or non-fictional art like movies and literature.
