Although Venice may aptly be regarded as an isolated sea city, it has always had close links with the surrounding marshlands and the mainland of northern Italy. The city of Venice (Venezia in Italian) is built on 117 small islands in the Venetian Lagoon, in north-east Italy as its shown in the map of italy showing Venice. The islands are separated by canals and linked by many small bridges. The population of Venice is about 270,000 people.
In 1866, following the Seven Weeks War, Venice, along with the rest of Venetia, became part of Italy as its mentioned in the map of italy showing Venice. Throughout the fifteenth century, Venetian land forces were almost always on the offensive and were regarded as the most effective in Italy, largely because of the tradition of all classes carrying arms in defense of the city and official encouragement of general military training.
