Venice is on everyone's list as one of the best cities to visit in the world. Cruise ships sailing the Mediterranean often include Venice as a port of call, and many ships even have an overnight in Venice due to its popularity. Venice is great to explore on your own, and the city's fascinating history and unusual sights are exciting and memorable. I last visited Venice in May 2006 on the Carnival Liberty, and sailing into Venice on that giant cruise ship was an unbelievable experience. These 60 pictures of Venice give just a small taste of the city's ambience.
