crossing over bad-smelling canals (which double also as the city sewage system).
Ooh, the same ones they offer those romantic gondola rides on?
Yep. Due to the peculiar geography of the city, Venice has no sewage system. It goes directly into the canals, but the tides sweep the Venetian lagoon twice a day, so it's not so icky as it sounds.

one of my favourite places in Italy is the island of Ischia.
Personally I've never been in the Campania region, but most people who went there agree that Ischia (with Capri and Procida) are really jewels in the Gulf of Naples.
