On day 5 of my Venetian adventures in December 2015, I visited the Giardinetti Reali. It's a wonderful little oasis of calm and greenery, steps away from the wild humanity of Piazza San Marco. The last time I was there the park was overrun delightfully with cats. The cats now though are all gone, as they are gone from every corner of Venice. (Apparently there was a sterilization campaign, and it was quite successful.)
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: 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.
