Venice is, without a doubt the most beautiful and magical city I've yet to visit. To be sure, its a photo rich environment. I hope some of the snaps I share here help to show what I was feeling as I wandered through the maze of narrow streets, alleys, and canals.
Here is a typical view from one of the many bridges across the canals. Boats, towers, buildings. Probable not much different than several hundred years ago.
Yet, another church! There are a lot on the island. This one has a rather grand facade.
A weather vane of grand design. Such funny little people on top!
My travel whore buddy, John... just feeling good about the day.
One of the many statues tucked away. Manly men!
Yes, another church. This one, with a big, really big dome.
Rush hour on the canal. Amazingly, the boats never seem to hit each other.
Choppy waters... no problems. The gondolas make their way along the grand canal.
