Why does Venice have so much water?
Venice has so much water, because the city actually is made up of 118 islands. The islands are located within the marshy Venetian lagoon that's along the northeast Italian coast. This saltwater lagoon in which Venice grew to be a major cultural and economic influence is located between the mouths of two Italian rivers. On the north is the mouth to the Piave river. On the south is the mouth to the Po river. So Venice has lots of water from its development in a marshy lagoon and in proximity to the Piave and Po rivers and to the Adriatic Sea. So it's 'water, water everywhere'.
Water is important to all cities including Venice, but the people of Venice might be more aware of water because they have a system of canals, meaning they essentially have streets of water. Venice is famous as a unique city because of how you get around...by boat!
There are many Venice hotels that allow you to be right next to the water or even on the water. You just have to look at the right spot in Venice. They may cost a lot so watch out.

In 2040, Venice will be under water. The Adriatic will cover the city. The Venetians love their city, and they want to stay there. They want to save Venice from the sea. They do not want to leave. How can they save Venice? They can put some gates in the sea. The gates will close so that Venice will not sink.
