What are some great horror stories set in Venice, Italy?

Well I wouldn't say they're the greatest, but I am currently reading and enjoying the collection Phantoms of Venice edited by David Sutton. Seems to be quite a varied mix of generally good stories, and I recommend picking up a copy if you can find one at a reasonable price. More details available on the book's Goodreads page. I'll also attach the book's rather atmospheric cover image.

Don't Look Now would surely be up there in any ranked list of Venetian horror stories. I haven't read Daphne du Maurier's original novella version, but the 1973 film version of it is quite terrifying. I believe it's a largely faithful adaptation. Also very much capturing Venice out of the main tourist season, when the streets are foggy and mysterious, and it takes on an atmosphere all of its own.

I've only read the novella, not seen the movie, but yeah it's good.
