Visiting Venice this year or planning to in future years? Well let me show you a little of what you can expect with a collection of photos designed to tempt..
Could this be the final temptation that'll make you book that flight and make those hotel reservations? I hope so!
I can't help you with the flight but if you need hotel ideas then these are the best value ones I recommend. Of course if, unlike for poor old me, money is no object then try these incredible luxury hotels.
Well I'm getting a little off track so let me not waste any more of your time and get on with the photos.
P.S. If you enjoy them please click like below.
This is a really picturesque spot but always crowded and whatever you do don't eat at the Sempione Trattoria. It looks pretty but they are so RUDE and the food is awful!!! One of the best places to stay in all Venice though is just around the corner, this is the Corte Grimani.
Another one outside of the dreadful Sempione Restaurant. For my selection of restaurants to try in Venice click here.
Head down to the water in St. Marks square, turn right along the Riva degli Schiavoni and this is the view you get. Across the Grand Canal you can see the Dorsoduro Sestriere (suburb) and the Church of Santa Maria della Salute.
This is the Piazza San Marco Gondola stop - one of the busiest in all Venice. Very early in the morning though it is still quiet and the gondolas bob gently about at their moorings. Across the water is the lovely San Giorgio Maggiore (click for more).
Nonno (Grandfather) takes his little grandson out for a boat trip. Venetians grow up with boats and water too but many young kids have hardly ever seen a car, motorbike or bicycle...Venice has none!
Finding a parking spot in Venice can sometimes drive you crazy. Like all big cities it's sometimes better to simply take the bus...the water bus.
Wander away from the main thoroughfares and you quickly stumble across another quieter Venice. This is the Venice I love.
