Venice is great for photographers. Well, all Italy is full of pictorial historical places, landscapes, people, but Venice has it all together as well as the uniqueness of having all the traffic down the channels on water, hundreds of bridges and islands, thousands of boats. The architecture is like nowhere else with houses rising straight from the water. Corrosion from the constant unavoidable moisture destroys buildings, but creates beautiful colors. This is the best city for walking, since there are no cars, no traffic lights or signs, and pedestrians have all the streets for themselves.
