Venice, one of the most interesting cities in the world, has suffered the worst flooding in at least 10 years. You might have to read a British newspaper to be aware of this, but water levels in Venice have risen to over 1 metre asl in places, and 75% of the city is flooded to some extent. News reports show tourists wearing the famous yellow plastic boots, wading through the shops and streets.
