Venetian Lagoon


Italy's Venetian Lagoon is one of the world's most famous.  It's formed by the islands of the city of Venice and neighboring islands, which nearly separate the lagoon from the Adriatic Sea.  It has a surface around of around 515 square km, or just over 200 square miles, including the islands within it.  The lagoon was only formed about 6,000 years ago.  Largely covered by mud flats and tidal shallows, the lagoon is the largest wetland area in the Mediterranean Basin.  Check it out from above in this drone video by Sauron82.
