It's all beautiful but then you realize that the famous canals are really the Venetian sewer system and the Laguna Veneta isn't tidal so the waste collects. The "wise" don't travel there in summer not because of the heat, but because of the stench!!

Been there, done that. Yes, it's worth seeing but don't plan a whole vacation around it, you can see it all in two days.

I was there in the summer and it did not smell. However, it's beautiful to look at but don't expect the authentic Italian's loaded with tourists. I loved the small Italian towns the most and the cities not necessarily a must-see for tourists.
