A gondola is seen tied up in Venice, near the Rialto bridge, on January 31, 2018, as exceptionally low tides have drained the lagoon city.
The unusually low tides caused a record low water measuring around 70 cm which caused problems to the water traffic in the historic center of Venice. / AFP PHOTO / MARCO SABADIN (Photo credit should read MARCO SABADIN/AFP/Getty Images)
