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.

Chester is the fifth "prettiest" city in Europe, according to an American newspaper.
USA Today asked its readers to vote for the continent's most attractive destinations.
The result says the North West city is more attractive than both Venice and Prague.
The paper says of Chester: "Roman walls surround a charming collection of Tudor and Victorian buildings, and a delightful shopping district filled with half-timbered shops. It's reminiscent of a Grimm tale."
Even Venice's Bridge of Sighs could not apparently top that.
