Venice


Rio del remedio:
Rio del Remedio in Venice, Italy
Venice (Italian: Venezia) is the capital city of the Veneto region in northern Italy. As of January 2004, the city had an estimated population of 271,251, with an estimated 1.6 million living in the Padua-Venice metropolitan area.

Venice is built on many small islands in a marshy saltwater lagoon, and is famous for its canals and links to the sea. Additionally for 1,100 years, from 697, until occupied by Austria in 1797 during the Napoleonic Wars, Venice was independent republic, The Most Serene Republic of Venice (Italian: Serenissima Repubblica di Venezia), and was for many centuries one of the leading maritime powers in the Adriatic and eastern Mediterranean.
