Venice Italy

Venice is made up of a collection of ~ 115 tiny islands

There are 400+ footbridges spanning the canals

There are 150 canals

There are over 400 gondoliers in Venice and about 350 gondolas 

By the 18th century there were over 200 churches in Venice

The San Marco bell tower, or campanile, was built in the 12th century and collapsed in 1902. The tower was rebuilt to be exactly the same as the previous one

Venice is sinking at the rate of 1-2 millimeters a year

I had the best vino I have ever had so far in my life in Venice

I also had the greatest gnocchi of my life here just south west of the Rialto Bridge, I will go there again one day

The pizza was good, not the best but then again they are not known for pizza in Venice, its surrounded by water afteral
