The Venice

Venice is a city in northeastern Italy sited on a group of 117 small islands separated by canals and linked by bridges.Venice remained closely associated with Constantinople, being twice granted trading privileges in the Eastern Roman Empire, through the so-called Golden Bulls or “chrysobulls” in return for aiding the Eastern Empire to resist Norman and Turkish incursions. In the first chrysobull, Venice acknowledged its homage to the Empire; but not in the second, reflecting the decline of Byzantium and the rise of Venice’s power.
