It is built on an archipelago of117 islands formed by about 150 canals in a shallow lagoon. The islands onwhich the city is built are connected by about 400 bridges. In the old center,the canals serve the function of roads, and every form of transport is onwater or on foot.You can ride gondola there. It is the classical Venetian boat whichnowadays is mostly used for tourists, or for weddings, funerals, or otherceremonies.
