Capturing the beauty of Venice

There are some cities in the world that seems to be a little piece of magic; Venice is undoubtely among these. Venice could be an eternal source of inspiration even for its monuments and its stunning architecture, to watch - and be photographed! - especially at dawn and dusk, when the light plays strongly with the sky and with the sea... ...But Venice is also its people, the tourists, the life that winds around the Grand Canal... ... Venice is its cuisine, its traditional... continue reading

The city offers a quiet... continue reading

Thinking about a holiday make sure your passports are up to date and you've got enough cash in this era of ' bad banks'.Venice was our choice last May and you will find it hard to beat it for photographic opportunities.The water front in Venice Lagoon is where public transport lands and departs, You've guessed it by boat.We stayed at Lido de Jesolo which is 20 Km from Venice but probably much cheaper. Here you see people going green in Italy with an entire family on one bike !It was wonderful... continue reading
