Venice is, actually, a group of islands, extended and linked after centuries of sanitation works and drainage. These islands are closed and descend into the Chioggia, through the Lido and Pellestrina. From the lagoon appear other islands, which can be called authentic, as for example San Giorgio Maggiore, La Giudecca, Murano and Torcello.

EXPLORING THE HISTORY AND CITY OF VENICE
During the first half of the 20th century, in the inter-war period, the name of Venice was not only applied to the city of the lagoon, but also, to the whole northeast of Italy. Now, the regions which comprise the aforementioned city are known as Veneto, High-Trentino Adagio and Friuli-Venice Julia, though, nowadays, the name of “Triveneto” evinces the debt all these regions have with Venice.
Logically, the influence of Venice can be seen wherever you go from its nearby areas in Chioggia until Padua, as the artistic environment, the development of their culture, their freedom of thought and their prosperity comes, to a large extent, from Venice.
The elegant and inimitable Venice has its heart in the Saint Mark Square, considered as the most elegant hall all over Europe, the Ducal Palace and its Grand Canal. The Grand Canal in Venice, which divides the city in two parts, has, approximately, 4 kilometers in length, though there are only 4 bridges that allow you to cross from one side to the other.
