Venice, the city of canals, stretches across numerous small islands in a marshy lagoon along the Adriatic Sea in the northeast of Italy. The saltwater lagoon stretches along the shoreline between the mouths of the Po (south) and the Piave (north) Rivers.

Venice is notable for its elective, Republican form of government, with the Duke or Doge of Venice being elected by the Venetian Senate.
