On The Move In Venice

Venice was all floating fabulousness!

It felt like I was just getting to know the city, when it was time for me to leave. “What will you do there for an entire week? And alone?” my friends exclaimed before I left.  I could easily have stayed another two.

I walked mostly. Through endless narrow calles, over innumerable pontes and onto picturesque campos presided over by stunning churches filled with unbelievable art. The clanging of bells from their companiles marking the time of day.

And when my poor feet could take no more, I hopped onto a Vaporetto for the long ride back ‘home’.

Here is a shot clicked from one such ride back…DSC_3224 copyPonte di Rialto from the Vaporetto

And a few of my gondola shots;



More soon. Have a great weekend.

  1. When I was in Venice I did not own a camera. It is so close to me and I keep postponing the second visit. Madhu, these photos are inviting me to jump on the next bus there. Fabulous captures!

  2. Lovely clicks Madhu! Venice has been on my bucket list for the longest time. Looking forward to more of your photos photos for more travel inspiration 🙂

    1. Thanks Kan. Loads more coming up when I have caught up with my comments and blog reading……..have a huge pile up as you can see 🙂

  3. Walking around in Venice is like anxiously opening a gift. After receiving the surprise, then comes another gift. I like what travel guru Rick Steves says about Venice …. “Try to get lost because you can’t.”

  4. I adored Venice both times I was there – one of my most memorable moments was strolling across Piazza San Marco after dark as the cobblestones glimmered under those gorgeous cast iron lampposts. It was our last night in town and we were catching the last vaporetto back to our small hotel on the Lido. Thanks for sharing these lovely photos, Madhu… they remind me that I must return to La Serenissima someday. It’s been more than a decade since I last went!

    1. You are most welcome James. Late nights, and early mornings are magical, not just in the Piazza, but in the rest of Venice as well. And I loved those last empty vaporetto rides back.

  5. These are exquisit, Madhu, and Italy, alone is one place I’d love to visit, but Venice is a must. It’s on the bucket list and hopefully, I’ll be able to check it off in the near future! Thanks for sharing!
