This is an exceptional tide peaks that occur periodically (mainly during autumn) in the Venice Lagoon, partially flooding Venice and Chioggia.

Those events can be categorized as: intense (80 cm – 109 cm); very intense (110 cm – 139 cm) and exceptional high waters (> 140 cm). Venician people are used to these events and the normal life still goes on. Tourist are always amused to see these kind of stuff.
