Venice off the beaten track…

{back doors}: Venice, my favourite city, never stops to surprise me … is well known, every time is never the same, every time is a discovery. To capture the essence of this amazing city you have to appreciate it at different times,seasons and moods, you won’t regret it, it will evoke different emotions at each time ….

This time I’ve opted for a non-touristic trip, off the main attractions, hidden calle and campi along the many canals and ponti…

Many the details of the picturesque city with lively inhabitants that never miss the occasion to greet each other on the overcrowded vaporetti….

Cara Mandarine,
We must do Venice in your company next time. How intriguing wouldn't that be! Your photos speak for themselves! Bacione, Ingrid from a hot Umbria
