The City of Canals and Gondolas is perhaps the most consistently beautiful city I've ever seen. Because of the age of the buildings and the constant moisture, everything seems to be fading, peeling, and breaking, but somehow these elements only add to the beauty.

It's been almost 30 years since I visited that city, but you make me feel it is right in front of me. Thank you.

Eighteen years ago (damn, has it been that long?) I spent one day in the City of Canals and Gondolas. No camera, no travel diary. I thank you for bringing this amazing city back to me.
