I love Venice and it is a city that I would always love seeing again. This weekend though Venice was hit with heavy flooding with water five feet above the level of the Adriatic Sea, resulting in 70 percent of the city being flooded. This was the sixth highest level of water since 1872.
It certainly would change things for the average tourist if you were there during a flood like this. Check out this video from The Telegraph. It sure puts a different perspective on st Mark’s Square!
