World's Top Waterfront Cities
What PPS Says: In most cities, roadways are
the most problematic aspect of the urban landscape; in Venice, the “roadways”
are the most beautiful part.
What We Like: Walking across bridges and wandering down the
narrow streets of the 188 small islands that make up the city, you may get
lost, but you will definitely find yourself engaged by the rhythms and charm of
Venice. When one of the streets opens into a sunlit piazza or campo, busy with cafés and shoppers and pickup soccer games and vaporetti chugging at
the water’s edge, you’ll experience your own age of discovery.
