Your Views: Is Chester "prettier" than Venice?

An online poll of American tourists has rated Chester as a "prettier" European destination than Venice.

The survey, by the USA Today newspaper, also sees the North West city outrank the Czech capital Prague by one place.

We asked for your tweets on whether Chester wins in the beauty stakes.

Here are some of them.

Went to Venice last year. More like Blackpool without rides. Tacky and packed with tourists. No contest with Chester.

Been to them both. I think Chester has the edge, only because I was not offered pigs knees and cabbage at every turn.
