In the movie A Room with a View, Helena Bonham-Carter gazes from her window at Hotel degli Orafi towards Ponte Vecchio. But I would say that this is a City with a View, since almost every corner could be featured on a painting.
“Aah, Venice”, as old Indiana Jones used to say. Just like places like NYC and Paris, this island is forever destined to appear frequently on the big screen. With 118 islands, 150 canals and 400 bridges there is a lot of scenic locations.

A few days ago, I was roaming the alleys of Valletta, built by the Knights of St. John after the great siege of 1565. Traces of the Knights are visible all over the place.
