We spent Friday in Venice Italy, yes it is unfortunate that we had only one day to see this lovely city, but we made the best of it. We have been to Venice before, so it was a day to visit some of the lovely spots we hold in our memories, and catch glimpses of the Venice in the autumn light.  One of the new things we noticed this time, Love Locks are starting to appear on some of the bridges!  It could be that I have been too busy looking at the scenery to notice them before.

Lots of boats in the canals, but with the number of visitors to the city there are only a  few places to sit quietly, and enjoy the sunshine.

Of course there are beautiful masks hanging on every stall waiting to be picked up and taken home by a tourist.

A view from the bell tower in St. Mark’s Square at sunset. We had not visited the top of the bell tower before, so this was a new view for us, and of course the best time to go is at sunset, as the lights come on in the city.

One of the favourite places to visit is the Rialto bridge. Even though both the canal and the bridge are crowded with people, it is a lovely spot to watch the sunset.

    Not yet having been to Florence, Venice is my favorite Euro-city. I first went there in about 1960. I’ve been many times since then and have always found it to be a fabulous place full of the types of images that you shared with us. The last time we went, I took a gazillion photographs of doors as Dorothy was fascinated with the huge variety of designs, shapes and colors 🙂
