Thanks to some superb photographers I have managed to put together a gallery of gorgeous pictures of Venice and the Veneto.
Pictures of Venice often fail to capture the magnificent brightness, light and color of Venice in summer.
The thing that struck me when I first visited Venice, so very many years ago, was just how vibrant everything was.
I walked out of the station and laid eyes on the Grand Canal. The sparkling light, bright colors of the boats, and the translucent blue of the water was something I never expected.
In most photos Venice looked grey and dull - in winter it can be - but on a bright summers day it most certainly isn't and I was determined to find photos that captured that.
The pictures on our Venice photos page definitely do.
Only a few of my photos were good enough. I have to boast a little here and say that I am getting much better than I was in the beginning. My husband though disagrees and reckons it is just the camera that is better...hmmm!
Veneto is not only Venice though. The photos of Verona, and those of the other areas of the Veneto, clearly show just how enchanting this magical region is.
I must thank

I include a lot of my photos, taken around Italy, on the site. I'm not a great photographer but sometimes pictures of people and places you love don't need to be "professional" to convey a whole lot of magic. If you too have some special Italian photos & moments please share them!
