    Waterfront Cities of the World Venice Venice (Italian Venezia
    [veˈnɛttsja] ( listen),[1] Venetian Venexia [veˈnɛsja]; (Latin
    Venetia)) is a city in northeastern Italy sited on a group of 118
    small islands separated by canals and linked by bridges.[2] It is
    located in the marshy Venetian Lagoon which stretches along the
    shoreline between the mouths of the Po and the Piave Rivers. Venice
    is renowned for the beauty of its setting, its architecture and its
    artworks.[2] The city in its entirety is listed as a World Heritage
    Site, along with its lagoon.[2]Venice is the capital of the Veneto
    region. In 2009, there were 270,098 people residing in Venices
    comune (the population estimate of 272,000 inhabitants includes the
    population of the whole Comune of Venezia; around 60,000[3] in the
    historic city of Venice (Centro storico); 176,000 in Terraferma (the
    Mainland), mostly in the large frazioni 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 1,600,000.
    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.[4][5] The city
    historically was the capital of the Venetian Republic. 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.[6] Venice has
    also been described by the Times Online as being one of Europes most
    romantic cities.[7]
