Where Is Venice, Italy?

The City of Canals, The City of Bridges, Queen of the Adriatic — most may simply know it as Venice. The city of Venesia is situated on a collective group of 118 small islands, separated by canals and linked by over 400 bridges, located in the Venetian Lagoon, an enclosed bay situated between the Brenta and Sile Rivers. Along with Padua and Treviso, the three cities form the Padua-Treviso-Venice Metropolitan Area that is home to a population of over two million people.

What Is Venice, Italy Known For?

Located within the shallow Venetian Lagoon, the city of Venice and the lagoon has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Touted as “undoubtedly the most beautiful city built by man” by the New York Times, Venice is a place that is too unforgettable to ignore.
