Famed throughout Europe for its floating canals, Venice is one of the most iconic cities in Italy. Venice is located on the East side of the peninsula where it meets the rest of Europe. From the ground, it is an impressive sight, with an elaborate grid-work of buildings and water seemingly supported by nothing.
At the center of Venice is a vertical canal 1100 feet high made out of timbers and planks. The canal consists of a tight spiral of high locks that constantly leaks from thousands of places. The air around the vertical canal is filled with rainbows whenever the sun is out.
The canals that fill the city are not truly levitated water, but are instead a network of aqueducts made out of transparent aluminum. The canals are criss-crossed by a multitude of foot bridges. Most of the buildings in Venice are made out of wood or from modern materials with wood siding. The whole structure is held aloft by a combination of stationary dirigibles and immovable rods. Each citizen is responsible for keeping his or her own property aloft and the city government is responsible for maintaining the canals.
