Europe Italy Travel


I got some of my best photos in Venice – unfortunately, this was partially restricted due to the hoards of tourists who were around every corner. Of course, some of the best places are to be found when you’re lost and in Venice, you’re likely to do this a lot!

Santa Maria della Salute
Piazza San Marco
Canal Grande

Notes on Venice: During the summer it’s busy, very busy, so be warned if you don’t like that – of course, there is plenty to see away from the main attractions. Take a map or buy one when you get there, you’ll need it! Get a 24-hour pass for the Vaporetto (water bus) and you’ll save yourself a lot. Try the pizza at Arca, Calle San Pantalon, Dorsoduro – it’s rather good!
