See What Venice Looks Like When Its Streets Are Completely Flooded
What makes Venice so beautiful and attractive to tourists is also it’s Achilles heel. The canal city, famous for its winding canals, is also highly susceptible to flooding, and those floods can prove particularly disastrous. When Venice is flooded, it looks completely different than it usually does. The floodwaters inundate the city’s iconic piazzas, alleys, and canals, with waters rising up to over a three feet high. The current is often so strong it even disrupts the normal movement of boats and gondolas.
