Is Venice an island?
Venice is a city that stretches across 117 small islands in the Venetian Lagoon. But, part of Venice is connected to mainland Italy through a bridge, the Ponte della Libertia, that is the official connection. So, can we say that Venice is an island? Yes, Venice is an island – but technically Venice is not just one island, and part of Venice is only connected to mainland Italy through the Ponte della Libertia bridge. And, we can say that Venice does have other islands – since the city of Venice covers 117 islands.
