Venice is a famous Italian town divided by multiple canals where the most common means of transport are boats of all kinds and, more traditionally, gondolas: luxurious smaller boats that make tourists happy and make Venice an even more perfect city for lovers of romance.

It is suspected that the causes of this phenomenon were due to a series of exceptional factors such as the lack of rainfall, exceptionally cold weather and the super moon of January, which ended up influencing the level of the tide.
