Top 5 Cities to View from the Water

There's a common theme to some of the most beautiful cities in the world, and that is that so many of them offer spectacular views from the water. From the beautiful sun soaked harbour in Miami to the incredible canals in Venice, below are the top 5 cities to view from the water.

5. Miami

Miami is one of the most popular destinations for those visiting the United States, and for good reason. It offers great weather, beautiful scenery and host of things to see and do. One of the best ways to appreciate the beauty of the city's skyline is to book one of the many sightseeing cruises that are available.

4. Venice

No list of cities that offer spectacular views would be complete without Venice. There are few experiences that can compete with a Gondola ride down The Grand Canal in Venice. Surrounded by the quaint local apartments and restaurants, there is something to see in every direction. One of the best times to experience a Gondola ride is in the late evening, as the sun is setting.

3. London

London is usually thought of as a hotbed of commercial and political activity but it also has some of the most incredible views to be found in any city in the world. You can experience all of London's spectacular views, including Westminster Abbey, The Tower Bridge and The London Eye by taking a ride one of the fun and quirky Duck Tours.

2. New York

New York is one of the most iconic cities in the world thanks to its bustling streets that are packed with culture and its many famous landmarks. Perhaps the most famous landmark in New York is the Statue of Liberty and what better place to view than from one of the city's famous water taxis.

Whilst New York offers spectacular views from the water at any time, it looks particularly stunning at night when you can see the city's many skyscrapers in full illumination.

1. Sydney

When it comes to spectacular sites, there are few cities in the world that can match Sydney. This is especially true when it comes to the view Sydney has to offer from the the water. A big part of what makes the surrounding landscapes so spectacular is the Sydney Opera House, which is renowned for being one of the stand out pieces of architecture to be found anywhere in the world.
