"Ahhh... Venice."―Indiana Jones[src]
Venice is a city located in the northeast part of Italy, on the Adriatic Sea, at the mouth of the Po River. With the main part of the city built on many tiny islands, much of the city is built on water, and canals are used instead of roadways.
In 1918, Indiana Jones was transferred from French intelligence to American intelligence and was sent to report to Colonel Waters in Venice. From there, he and Waters departed on a mission to Transylvania. While in Venice, Jones encountered a fortune teller who divined that Jones would face incredible evil, and death would be the outcome.
In 1938, Walter Donovan sent an expedition to seek out the whereabouts of the Holy Grail, and his initial team of Henry Jones, Sr. and Elsa Schneider came to Venice to search for clues leading to the location of the Grail. After Henry's disappearance, Indiana Jones was enlisted to both find his father and also continue the search for the Grail. He and Marcus Brody came to Venice, and met up with Dr. Schneider.
At the library, which was a former church, Jones realized that his father was not researching in books for clues leading to the Knight's tomb, but actually searching for an entrance to the tomb. Discovering a way into the Venetian catacombs, Jones and Dr. Schneider ventured underground, searching for the tomb. Meanwhile, Brody was knocked out by members of the Brotherhood of the Cruciform Sword. After finding the Grail Knight's shield and its information about the location of the Grail, Jones and Schneider narrowly escaped a oil fire set by Kazim, and then fled by motorboat through the docks from the Brotherhood's armed men. Eventually, Jones and Kazim faced off and fought while their boat was being shredded by a ship's propeller. Given information on his father's whereabouts by Kazim, Jones and Schneider left Venice to go to the Castle Brunwald, while Brody went ahead to Iskenderun to continue the search for the Grail.
