St. Mark’s

The canals are certainly deserving of their own page. They are instantly recognizable worldwide as a distinct trademark of Venice. Wherever you go throughout the town you encounter canals and bridges full of nifty functional character. On foot is the best way, but the boat busses are very regular along the main canals. Be sure to visit Saint Mark's Square and Basilica.

Santa Maria della Salute

Look for Santa Maria della Salute with the distinctive dome, near the opening of the Grand Canal. You can see a closer view on the main Venice page. Below is Accademia di Belli Arti the art museum and school, with its own bus stop.

On a Walkabout

Despite all the waterways dividing up the city into a grid, Venice is an excellent walking city. Everywhere are beautiful architectural touches, colorful people teeming about, or the smells of yummy food cooking up ahead, and suddenly — an intricate bridge spanning green water that you must cross. And there's some folks commuting via gondola...

Strange beautiful city landscape...

Arts n' Crafts

Venice is where I ended up getting gifts for folks back home. Numerous boutiques were selling the distinct Murano glass from the island of the same name just across the water. And although the artistic styles varied, a flavor-of-the-month permeated many shops. I liked it alot, and ended up scoring some prints, maps and other nifties to ship out via the local Poste Italiane.

Cowpie Rock is a vast, smooth, rock formation kind of like a big playground for hikers and climbers. As its name implies, it resembles a gigantic cowpie baking in the sun.

A couple of warning signs spelled out a release of liability for trespassers on this sketchy bridge. Despite the condition of the planks, the structure of the bridghe is quite solid.
