Venice, the capital of the italian region of Veneto, is built on 117 small islands and has 150 canals connected by 409 bridges, of which only three cross the main canal. Venice is the perfect place to walk and get hopelessly lost for the day. Away from the busy tourists centres you will find endless mazes of backstreets and deserted squares. The population is roughly 63,000 although this is swelled enormously by the tourist numbers.
During the barbarian invasions of the 5th and 6th centuries AD, when the people of the Veneto mainland sought refuge in the marshy region, the refugees built the now-famous watery villages on rafts of wooden posts driven into the soil, laying the foundations for the floating palaces of today. And so the islands of the Venetian lagoon were created.
