Venice is a city in the north eastern part of Italy country right on the Adriatic within the province of Venetia and is often called La Serenissima. There are more than 100 islands in the lagoon of Venice. The republic of Venice has been an important political and economic power in Europe for about 1000 years, but lost its independence in 1897, when Napoleon set foot in St. Mark’s Square and forced the supreme authority to surrender.
