Ah, Venice! Just the name conjurs up romance. Evening cruises on a gondola and afternoons exploring the amazing little islands that seem to go on forever. It's been almost three years since our anniversary visit, yet I remember so much of it as if it were yesterday.
If you've ever seen Disney's version at Epcot's World Showcase, do not make the mistake and think you've seen Venice. It truly does just whet the appetite for more. Trust me, if you go, you won't be disappointed!
