The gorgeous color in each home is unique, and the boats and gondolas are seen moored by the sides of the homes. An elegant cafe is seen on the right. The bridge, which is seen here in the midground, is typical of the many bridges used for crossing the canals, of which there are 177, separating 177 islands, on which there are 409 bridges. Venice was thought to be formed at the time of ancient Roman empire and was officially founded in noon on 25th March 421.
