The 'streets' of Venice are formed via an intricate path of canals and waterways, serving the function of roads. In the old city center, virtually every form of transport is on water or on foot: with more than 150 canals and 400 bridges, it is quite the place to capture anything related to water. Yet another fact about Venice is that it is built on an archipelago of more than 100 islands in a shallow lagoon. According to the Lonely Planet: For a thousand years the city was one of the most enduring mercantile sea powers on the face of the earth. Today the brilliance and influence have long since faded, leaving a town of tarnished glories, out of time and out of place, so achingly beautiful it's hard not to look for the back of the set.
