Venice is full of countless incredible buildings, but one of the best is Palladio's San Giorgio Maggiore church. Neoclassical brilliance. On the third day of my December 2015 Venetian trip I took a boat out to San Gio and went atop the bell tower. So gorgeous.
Venice, Day One: Wandering
Going through more of my thousands of Venetian photographs from my visit last December.... On my first day in Venice, I wandered around the Castello and San Marco districts as the sun was setting. Here are photos before and after darkness fell.
Venice, Day 2: Campanile di San Marco
On day two of my December 2015 trip Venice, I went to the top of the San Marco bell tower when it first opened. The air was crisp and foggy, but the fog quickly burned off as I snapped my photos.
Venice Day 2: Piazza San Marco
Venice, Italy. Is there a lovelier city on the planet? Not to me! And in Venice, is there a lovelier spot than the Piazza San Marco? On the second day on my trip last December after my climb up the campanile, I snapped some photos around the gorgeous square, just a few short blocks from my apartment.
Venice, Hotel Danieli
Near my apartment in Venice (where I visited in December 2015) stands a wonderful five-star hotel, the Danieli. Its rooftop restaurant looks out on both the Palazzo Ducalo and San Giorgio Maggiore. Impressive. The whole place has a great vibe of an old Venetian palazzo combined with a modern hotel. Sitting at the bar, sipping my gin & tonic, I felt like I was in a scene from a James Bond film. Turns out they filmed part of Moonraker here...
