Islands and Canals Make Venice a Wonderful Cruise Destination

By

Venice, Italy is a delightful cruise ship port of call, and one of the best sail away ports in the world. Venice is located in northeast Italy and much of the city is built on islands or floating piers. Most travelers who visit Venice fall in love with the ambiance and character of this marvelous Italian city. Cruise ships dock on the isle of Venice, and passengers can explore the city using the water taxi system, which is inexpensive and easy to use. These Venice pictures demonstrate how interesting the city can be.

Almost all cruise lines that sail the Mediterranean visit Venice, and many overnight in port, allowing passengers the opportunity for a romantic evening gondola ride, an evening drink in St. Mark's Square, or free time to enjoy the city by night.
