I got in Venice throught the Liberty Bridge looking at the Lagoon that show with low tide: there some fishermen working collecting oysters, each with half a body in the water.
When I was child I thought that Venice were surrounded by deep sea, a sort of ocean around the old city, but a day I saw the bottom of the lagoon emerge and Venice somehow lost his image, a bit childhood disappointment.
