Venice is frequently subject to tidal flooding. They are due to a combination of factors. The most relevant one is the prevalent wind from south-east combined with full or new moon. Whenever the tide cannot recede, the lowest sections of the city get flooded. A pair of good rubber boots is enough to cope with it without any trouble.
