General & Geography

Venice is a lagoon city in northeastern Italy and forms the capital of the Veneto region.

More than 60 percent of the almost 260 square miles of water area. The city area is home to around 275,000 inhabitants, 60,000 of whom live in the historic centre of Venice.

Venice and its settlements are located on alluvial land and were inscribed on UNESCO’s World Heritage List in 1987. Like Paris, Venice is often referred to as the”city of love”.

The city centre is one of the most visited destinations in Europe. One distinguishes the laguna morta (dead lagoon) in the north from the saltwater lagoon Laguna viva, which is mainly fed by fresh water. The waters offer a very extensive diversity of species and are especially important for migratory birds.

In addition to the historical centre, five districts on the mainland are part of the city area of Venice, as well as the more than 60 islands that are spread out in the lagoon of Venice in the north of the Adriatic Sea.

The city has about 180 canals, which can still be crossed by gondolas. The largest artery is the Canal Grande, which winds its way through the entire historical centre of the city.
