Venice gives you the illusion that the whole city is floating on water. A lot of people think Venice was built on islets, but it really wasn’t. Venice is completely supported by platforms of wood. These wooden platforms are kept intact by more structures that are in the sea. Venice Italy is best known today for its culture and romantic canals. With the exotic way the city was construction and the backdrop of the ever-changing light caused by the waters of the canals, it has been romantically portrayed in many paintings, plays, movies, songs and operas.
