** Glantri City in the {{Mystara}} setting.
** The {{Eberron}} setting has something similar in Zarash'ak, the major city in the Shadow Marches. It's a collection of buildings and plazas built on stilts over a swamp and frequently connected by bridges. Unlike most cities of this sort, the Marchers don't use the canals to move around as much due to occasional [[NeverSmileAtACrocodile hostile]] [[ReptilesAreAbhorrent wildlife]].
* Marienburg, in ''WarhammerFantasyRoleplay'', is based pretty closely on the real-world Amsterdam.

* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' has Vivec.

* ''Series/TheElderScrolls'':
**
''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' has Vivec.Vivec. It looks ''nothing'' like a European city -- each of its city blocks is a single gargantuan building (a 'canton') rising up from the water, and the bridges binding the cantons together are part of the buildings themselves.



** Of all these, Vivec is the one most separate from Venice in that it looks ''nothing'' like a European city -- each of its city blocks is a single gargantuan building (a 'canton') rising up from the water, and the bridges binding the cantons together are part of the buildings themselves.

* Tenochtitlan, the capital of the Aztec empire, which was located on top of Lake Texcoco in what is now Mexico. However, seeing as it was the seat of power of an ancient Native American culture far removed from anything resembling European culture, it really wasn't anything like Venice but even [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome more beautiful]] according to the historical accounts.

* Shown in several parts of the ''VideoGame/SakuraWars'' franchise, which takes place in the 1920s; Tokyo once was full of canals, most of which are now gone because of World War I (or a Demon War) and urban development afterwards.
