Romancing the Grand Canal
Venice! Romantic! Exotic! Exquisite! Splendid! Trendy! All these & yet I could still not describe the ambience of this amazing gem of Europe!       Ok, may be switch on the CD & particularly the song Santa Lucia, that'll help a little...      & then there's the ice-cream, the 13th century architecture, the gondolas, the canals, the masks, the art pieces ...

If not for the fact that I've only seen Venice in the evening, I probably would have given it the maximum rating. I'm convinced that the city loses absolutely none of its charm, romanticism & beauty after nightfall. A boat ride through the Grand Canal is essential, but don't forget to traverse on foot to Piazza San Marco and revel in its (literally) golden opulence.

I loved Venice and walked all the way to St. Mark's through the twisting alleyways. It was a long, interesting walk.

Venice has also been described by the Times Online as being one of Europe's most romantic cities.

The city stretches across 118 small islands in the marshy Venetian Lagoon along the Adriatic Sea in northeast Italy. The saltwater lagoon stretches along the shoreline between the mouths of the Po (south) and the Piave (north) Rivers. The population estimate of 272,000 inhabitants includes the population of the whole Comune of Venezia; around 60,000 in the historic city of Venice (Centro storico); 176,000 in Terraferma (the Mainland), mostly in the large frazione of Mestre and Marghera; and 31,000 live on other islands in the lagoon.
