Venice: the famous city of water is arguably one of the most photographed city on the planet. And it’s not hard to imagine why with the picturesque canals and fairy-tale like bridges – even their lunch spots are picture perfect! Needless to say during my trip there my camera had been working non-stop trying to capture every corner of this magnificent city – I even ran out of batteries twice!
I had probably averaged about 300 photos per day (that’s counting our last day there which was a half day) and it will take hours for one to go through my entire album. So instead I pluck the best of the corps and planted them right here for your eyes:
First glimpse of the grand canal lined with beautiful flowers (my sister’s eagerness can be sensed from the fact that she barged into this photo!). We were even rewarded with a misty morning!

One of the many churches’ courtyard (I really can’t remember which…)
One of the many churches and piazza reachable via bridges. A quite canal lined with boats. A gondola transporting its pessengers around the canals.Scala Contarini del Bovolo – a hidden gem worth tracking down for.
