Location of the Week: The Venice Canals of Italy
The Venice Canals
Known as the “City of Water,” Venice sits in the Northeastern corner of Italy along the Venetian Lagoon. The city is comprised of 118 small islands all connected by canals and bridges. To this day, the canals function as a means of transportation for goods and people. Venice, Italy is most famous for its artists and architects from the Renaissance Era, but the Venice Canals have their own place in history as a center for International trade from the 13th to the 17th century.
