I have been to Venice many times. In fact I could really say I lived here for a while in the 80's. But I have never approached by ship. Venice never ceases to amaze. It is a magical place like no other in the world. I know this has been said by others more eloquently, but no matter, it is a place of history, magic, beauty and romance. And tourists and pigeons.
The view as we entered from the ship. As if Marco Polo were on Holland-America and just finished his breakfast on the Lido deck.
