Venezia | A Photoblog

My first backpacking trip from 2006 – destination, Europe. Venice was my first stop.

The Taxi Stand. Where most people (tourists) get dropped off in Venice.

You can't get away from it - crowds will always form outside Venice's most popular sights. The Doge's Palace being the first on the list.

The other must-see landmark, Piazza & Basilica di San Marco. Beware of flying rats (pigeons).

If you are in Venice for the Biennale, you may just find yourself in one of the quieter corners of the city. Arsenale, at the north of Cannaregio, has splendid views of Murano island.The back alleys of Venice tend to be very quiet and reserved. I can easily imagine myself living on this street canal.

Within the island, you'll find quirky bridges at odd angles spanning narrow canals. Stop in the middle and enjoy the view.
My favourite mental image of Venice. Tiny unassuming piers that spring up when you turn the corner, where you least expect them.
