The only "real" Wonder that stood the test of time. It is the only Wonder of the original Wonder of the Worlds list of ancient Greek philosophers that still exists. Probably greatest achievement of construction engineering ever.
Incredible architectural engineering. Built on 118 small islands in a lagoon. Founded around 400 AD. Played an important role in medieval and renaissance Europe. Many pieces of architecture in the town actually symbol its history. Like the Santa Maria della Salute symbols the end of the plague.
