Venice on My Mind

Venice, Canal

St. Mark’s Square with the its Basilica, numerous caffès and the  Doge’s Palace  is thronged with tourists year-round. However, there are wonderful neighborhoods to explore where the Venetians live and play. Whether you are going to Venice for the Biennale (through November 22, 2015) or just to enjoy one of the most beautiful cities on earth, make sure to visit the lesser known areas of Dorsoduro,  and Santa Croce.  These photos are just a few of those taken on my most recent trip when I spent many hours wandering around far from the madding crowd.

  1. Venice has been on my “revisit” agenda for several years now. You’ve helped bring it higher on my list. I spent time in the less tourist-heavy neighborhoods, wandering and getting blissfully lost. It is a magic place.
