• The sinking city of Venice sits on a shallow lagoon. The Grand canal is about 10 ft deep and has 3 bridges. There are about 400 small bridges on this beautiful island paradise which serve as a crossing point for 150 canals, most of which are knee deep or less. The canal grande is the deepest. All the others are surprisingly shallow. During flood time " Aqua Alta", the streets of Venice have up to an extra 3 ft of water. With global warming and rising Adriatic tides future generations may not be able to enjoy the beauty of this incredible place. My experience in Venice was magical. There's no other place on earth quite like Venice!
