50 Cities of the World #16 Venice
Welcome to the city that seems more like an island. Well, lots of islands: "group of 117 small islands separated by canals and linked by bridges"
Welcome to Venice.
You have all that water to amaze you.
Even if you go there with Indiana Jones in mind (The Last Crusade people!) or simply to live the wonderful Venice Carnival. It doesn't matter because Venice looks great both ways.
As the card back states, Venice was and still is the 'pearl of the Adriatic".
For what I've searched, the card pictures the St Mark's Campanile situated in Piazza San Marco. The rest is probably a representation of the Grand Canal where you can see the views on a gondola.
If you wan to try and travel to Venice please check lock weather report. They have this thing of getting a bit (even more!) under water sometimes.
