  • Europe is the world's second-smallest continent by surface area, covering about 10,180,000 square kilometres or 2% of the Earth's surface and about 6.8% of its land area. Of Europe's approximately 50 states, Russia is the largest by both area and population (although the country has territory in both Europe and Asia), while the Vatican City is the smallest.

    • Venice, Veneto, Italy
  • 9. CANALS OF VENICE
  • 10. CANALS OF VENICE
    • It’s one of the most magical places on earth.
    • The city is emblematic of art, culture, and the power of imagination. It seems to float on the sea as if by magic.
    • Venice contains over 150 canals, spanned by over 400 bridges.
    • The largest canal in the city, the Grand Canal (“ Cannalasso ” ), is approximately 3 km long, over 350 feet wide and wends its way in a giant “ S ” curve through the city.
  • 11. CANALS OF VENICE
  • 12. CANALS OF VENICE
    • Three bridges span the Grand Canal -- the Ponte dei Scalzi, the Ponte d’Accademia, and the famous covered Ponte Rialto.
    • The majority of day-to-day traffic in the city takes the form of foot traffic due to steps of bridges.
    • The canals are the main transportation route in the city.

  • 14. “ Vaporetto ” - Water bus
  • 15. “ Motoscafi ” - Water taxi

  • 18. CANALS OF VENICE
    • The water that fills the canals is not clean (industrial waste from the mainland and human waste ).
    • Human activity and the rerouting of rivers and streams into the lagoon have in recent years caused the city to begin sinking.
    • Plans to create a system of inflatable gates that will help to control the water that floods the city are in place, with the project scheduled to be completed in 2011.
  • 19. CANALS OF VENICE
    • Despite the continued threat to the health of Venice’s canals, they remain one of the most distinctive and compelling architectural features in the world.
    • A ride through the canals, whether by gondola or in a powered boat, exposes the magic of this unique city in a way that’s unequalled by any other method.
    • Travel the Canalasso at night, or explore the maze of smaller waterways during the day; the traveler is sure to come away with memories never to be erased.
