I visited Venice in September 2005 on the occasion of the Venice Biennale. At the time Venice was already crowded and I was lucky to still find some quiet areas. I even had the Peggy Guggenheim Museum almost to myself. In the years since Venice has been completely overrun by tourists. The thing is, Venice really IS beautiful and I have been thinking of going back for years.

This was actually near my hotel

More Italy! Rome, Bologna and Florence.

If you can't get enough of Italy: Tuscany and Siena.
