Venice is the capital of the Veneto region. In 2009, there were 270,098 people residing in Venice's comune (the population estimate of 272,000 inhabitants includes the population of the whole Comune of Venezia; around 60,000 in the historic city of Venice (Centro storico); 176,000 in Terraferma (the Mainland), mostly in the large frazioni (roughly equivalent to "parishes" or "wards" in other countries) of Mestre and Marghera; 31,000 live on other islands in the lagoon). Together with Padua and Treviso, the city is included in the Padua-Treviso-Venice Metropolitan Area (PATREVE), with a total population of 2,600,000. PATREVE is only a statistical metropolitan area without any degree of autonomy. The name is derived from the ancient Veneti people who inhabited the region by the 10th century BC. The city historically was the capital of the Republic of Venice. Venice has been known as the "La Dominante", "Serenissima", "Queen of the Adriatic", "City of Water", "City of Masks", "City of Bridges", "The Floating City", and "City of Canals". Luigi Barzini described it in The New York Times as "undoubtedly the most beautiful city built by man". Venice has also been described by the Times Online as being one of Europe's most romantic cities. The Republic of Venice was a major maritime power during the Middle Ages and Renaissance, and a staging area for the Crusades and the Battle of Lepanto, as well as a very important center of commerce (especially silk, grain, and spice) and art in the 13th century up to the end of the 17th century. This made Venice a wealthy city throughout most of its history. It is also known for its several important artistic movements, especially the Renaissance period. Venice has played an important role in the history of symphonic and operatic music, and it is the birthplace of Antonio Vivaldi.

The water's all gone-dola! Unusually low tide exposes the unseen side of Venice's canal network It is estimated that water levels in Venice are two feet lower than normal Many of the lagoon city's most iconic canals are completely impassable Thousands of visitors to the city have been left disappointed by the canal It is the second year in a row that the canals have completely dried out Visitors to Venice are being surprised by the lack of water in the city which has left many of the world-famous gondolas beached on the muddy canal beds. This is the second year in a row where the city has seen historically low tidal levels. Instead of water, tourists are being confronted by lines of mud snaking through the city. Last year, water levels were reported as 28 inches below normal levels, curtailing transport by gondola or water taxi for much of the day. However, the city also regularly faces flooding several times a year. Also, while tourism numbers in the city are increasing, the size of the lagoon city's population continues to dwindle. Since 1951, Venice's population has steadily shrunk from 175,000 to some 55,000. Several factors are blamed, including high prices driven by a boom in tourism, the logistics of supplying a carless city, and the erosion of canal-side apartment buildings by lapping waters. Basements and ground floors in much of Venice are frequently flooded when the 'acqua alta' (high water) phenomenon occurs, forcing residents and visitors alike to don high rubber boots and use raised walkways. The Italian city's daytime population swells during the day, when many Venetians who now live on the mainland commute to the historic center for jobs, many of them in hotels, restaurants and souvenir shops serving tourists. When huge cruise ships disembark their passengers for day trips in Venice, boosting the city's tourist numbers, Venetian natives seem even scarcer.

The Grand Canal in Venice, Italy. It forms one of the major water-traffic corridors in the city. Public transport is provided by water buses and private water taxis, and many tourists explore the canal by gondola. One end of the canal leads into the lagoon near the Santa Lucia railway station and the other end leads into Saint Mark Basin; in between, it makes a large reverse-S shape through the central districts of Venice. It is 3.8 km long, and 30 to 90 m wide, with an average depth of five meters (16.5 ft). The banks of the Grand Canal are lined with more than 170 buildings, most of which date from the 13th to the 18th century, and demonstrate the welfare and art created by the Republic of Venice. The noble Venetian families faced huge expenses to show off their richness in suitable palazzos; this contest reveals the citizens’ pride and the deep bond with the lagoon. Amongst the many are the Palazzi Barbaro, Ca' Rezzonico, Ca' d'Oro, Palazzo Dario, Ca' Foscari, Palazzo Barbarigo and to Palazzo Venier dei Leoni, housing the Peggy Guggenheim Collection. The churches along the canal include the basilica of Santa Maria della Salute. Centuries-old traditions, such as the Historical Regatta, are perpetuated every year along the Canal. Because most of the city's traffic goes along the Canal rather than across it, only one bridge crossed the canal until the 19th century, the Rialto Bridge. There are currently three more bridges, the Ponte degli Scalzi, the Ponte dell'Accademia Il Canal Grande è il principale canale di Venezia. Lungo circa 3800 metri (larghezza dai 30 ai 70 m, profondità media 5 m), divide in due parti il centro storico tracciando una "S" rovesciata che va dall'innesto del Ponte della Libertà al Bacino di San Marco.È affiancato per tutta la lunghezza da magnifici edifici, in gran parte dei secoli tra il XII e il XVIII, che manifestano il benessere e l'arte creati dalla Repubblica di Venezia, rendendolo uno dei simboli della città. Ogni anno i veneziani vi rivivono tradizioni secolari della Serenissima come la Regata Storica. Dopo un breve tratto in direzione sud-est, all'altezza del Ponte della Costituzione svolta a nord-est, per poi descrivere una grande ansa, lungo la quale si trovano il Ponte degli Scalzi e la confluenza del Canale di Cannaregio, la quale termina al Ponte di Rialto, l'unico antico fra i 4 ponti pedonali sul canale e famoso quanto il canale stesso.
