An aerial photo of Venice and the Venetian Lagoon


Cheryl took this aerial photo from a KLM passenger jet after the plane flew out over the Adriatic sea, turned, and crossed the Venetian Lagoon before heading north toward the Alps. We've added captions that describe what you're seeing.

The little white specks in the water are vaporetti, water taxis, and other boats in the navigation channels between Venice's historic center and the islands nearby.

For an even more detailed aerial map of the city's historic center, don't miss our Venice Orientation Map at Veniceforvisitors.com.

It is so beautiful the way anyone can just take a picture from an airoplane and see the landscape of the country they just left. Next time I fly, i'll do just this. Great job on the labelling btw.
