Doing the Lagoon Walk

The average depth of the Lagoon of Venice is not much, about 1.2m when the tide is at the historical zero mark, but much of the lagoon is a lot more shallow than that.

The tidal difference can be up to 1.5m, from about 0.5m below the historical zero mark to 1m above, so it is not always easy to know if you can actually pass a certain spot in the lagoon at a given level of tide.

Sometimes we make mistakes and we’ll have to do the lagoon walk:

Lagoon walk - 1

Lagoon walk - 2
