Anyone who enjoys great mystery reading has or should read/read both Dona Leon and Micheal Dibdin. They both feature police leads working in Venice. The city itself is always a "character" in both series.
In trying to follow the action, maps are usually included in their books.
Still, maps don't do justice to this incredible city. I wonderd out loud to Mrs. MEF if aerial photos of Venice were available. YES, they are; the most incredible of these is located at http://www.spaceimaging.com/gallery/top_10/venice_2000.html
This image is huge and requires a minute of so to download; but the detail!!!!!!!!!!!! It is really beautiful and worth the wait! A must-look!

When I looked at the Venice image, my first reaction was " Want a 5m x 3m print of this on my wall. Well, it turns out that SpaceImaging caters to industrial needs, not small homeusers. The data on the Venice shot is available on disc for about $400; you are left to have the printing done yourself. NOT your $19.99 poster!

Whoa! Cool. I like that it is basically a circular image.

Now how did I miss seeing this? This is also a fantastic view.

I love aerial views... the last time we flew from Paris to Toronto, it was a spectacularly clear day. I was almost relieved when we finally started flying over the ocean - I had a crick in my neck from staring in fascination at the wonderful patchwork.
