Venice (Venezia in Italian) is a city in northeast Italy that is made up of a group of 118 small islands located in the marshy Venetian Lagoon that are linked by bridges.   The city is listed as a World Heritage Site.

Although I was warned that Venice was congested with tourists and that the canals smelled, I did not find this to be so.  It was quite warm since I was visiting in August, but there were no mosquitoes, garbage or smell anywhere.  What I did find was a romantic atmosphere (especially at night with the lights flickering on the waterways), flowers cascading out of window boxes, gondoliers taking couples for boat rides, and sidewalk cafes serving delicacies of all sorts.  Fashionable women in very high heels were shopping at exclusive designer stores along narrow stone walkways.  Velvet slippers, Venetian masks, Murano glass beads and vases beckoned one to take them home as souvenirs.  Venice is one of my most favourite places.

When you get the opportunity to visit this floating city, keep in mind that Venice is the world's only pedestrian city.  You either take a boat -- vaporetti (water bus), water taxis, or walk.  After my amazement at actually being here, I was taken aback at how well the locals were dressed.  Tourists were easy to spot with their cameras, shorts and sandals while the locals wore dress slacks, shoes, and skirts or dresses with impeccable makeup and hairdos.

The Grand Canal divides Venice in half and is crossed over by three bridges.  Along the sides of the canal you will find palaces and buildings that have been built over the course of 500 years.  Ride the taxi up and down the canal as I did for magnificent views at a very low cost.

Completed in 1591, the Rialto Bridge is the most famous of the bridges that span the Grand Canal.  An architectural icon of Venice, the bridge is often photographed and is one of the most visited tourist attractions in the city.

Getting lost while strolling the streets of Venice is a pleasure.  You will undoubtedly come upon mysterious passageways and friendly people.  Opening her shutters, this elderly woman greeted me warmly and smiled and nodded when I asked to take her picture.

The bridge of Sighs (Ponte dei Sospiri) passes over the Rio di Palazzo and connects a prison to the interrogation rooms.  The name comes from the supposition that a convict would gaze out of the windows of the bridge and sigh as they took their last look at Venice before being imprisoned.

Local legend states that if a couple kisses on a gondola at sunset under the bridge, their love will be eternal.
