These photos of Venice contributed by one of our readers have become some of our favorite Venice pictures.
The main reason for this is because they don't have the artificial perfection of the picture postcard images we've all seen on travel brochures. Instead they capture the sensation of approaching Venice for the first time by sea, and marveling at the sight of this unique city in all its crumbling glory.
