Venice on Foot - Part Three


A collection of random images walking around Venice.

Venice is a maze of narrow walkways & canals. Every fall & winter, the high tide is high enough to flood the city by a few inches. When that happens, the benches you see stacked in the middle of the walkway are laid out to enable pedestrians to walk around Venice with dry feet. They aren't put up everywhere, but there are maps at the bus stations that show where.

The modern building on the left turns out to be a bank. It looks very much out of place in a city of aged & ancient buildings, and is the only one of its kind I saw.

Venice is a cramped city, but it does have a few open spots. This is one of the larger ones we encountered. Most of the larger ones sport a statue of somebody.

While almost all of the buildings are old, they don't all look "old". This bright entry can be found in the distance, on the left, in the previous picture, but is probably invisible because of the camera angle.

Not all of the piazzas are so large. This one, which has a name I didn't write down, is at the end of a tunnel that was just shoulder wide, and is the open area for the apartment buildings that surround it.

In Venice, you play soccer whereever you can find the room.
