The city (19) ….. its visitors incredible sights. (20) ….. not believe those (21) ….. say Venice is a museum. This is still a living city full of joys. Venice (22) ….. good in any light. The sun makes the domes sparkle, but even on a grey, (23) ….. day the city can be extremely romantic.

And (24) ….. it gets overcrowded, (25) ….. is an easy escape to the other islands in the Venice Gulf (26) ….. brightly-coloured houses are a photographer’s dream.

In a curious way, Venice is a model city for the future; it is free from cars and the (27) ….. way to get around is by public transport or (28) ….. foot. This one fact alone (29) ….. it a unique city, one (30) ….. traffic noise. The creation of genius indeed.
