From Florence, we traveled to Venice. Don't have a lot to say other than we greatly enjoyed our return to this unique city on the water. Everybody knows Venice has waterways and gondolas instead of streets and taxis. So we'll dispense with those photos to get them out of the way,
then focus on other images that caught my eye. Enjoy...
A foggy morning along the canal
Fog lifted, leaving the paver stones wet.
Of course a photo of gondolas
Were granted access to a special overlook of the Grand Canal
Still a morning mist hanging in the air
Typical little walkway bridges in Venice
When you take a gondola ride, you don't think
that you might be in someone's backyard, seeing a clothes line.
In every main tourist area, there are street vendors selling
"Original Italian Art Paintings" ,
printed in China.
Then there is Saint Mark's Square (Piazza San Marco), the heart of Venice.
Caught the afternoon sun casting a shadow
over the people in the square.
Italians dine late at night, normally around 9 pm.
Many dine with family or friends,
others dine alone
That wraps up Day One in Venice. Tomorrow we search for a few places
away from the normal tourist scene.
I've lost count of how many times I visited Venice while stationed in Italy with the army. Thanks for refreshing my memories of it!ReplyDelete
You're welcome. Venice is a very special place to visit, though not every year. I wonder though are the seasons noticeable in Venice? We have only been there in October.Delete
I do not recall changing of the seasons in Venice or for that matter in Italy. Winter is wet and windy, summer is hot and humid but I don't remember fall colors.ReplyDelete
