    Venice, the City of Masks. Lets create a visual travelogue and share the riches of the city called "La Serenissima" (the most serene).

    Once a major maritime power, the city which gave us the word "ghetto" is now known more for Carnevale and San Marco Square, for acqua alta an the scores of churches. So much beauty to be found, little bridges on narrow back alleys, the fish market as sunrise, a dish of octopus with polenta followed by a cup of espresso... what is your view of this treasure?

    I'm using thumbnails to make scrolling easier for people not interested in the pics. Select to enlarge.

    Wonderful lighting on that first post, and the second really sets a mood.

    BY FAR one of the most photogenic cities on Earth. I could not believe when we got home that I had almost 1000 pictures from 4 days in venice (got to love the memory card technology, I couldnt imagine having 50 rolls of 24 exp. film like in the "old" days!!!). I had to dumb down the resolution to make the files uploadable, so pardon the "streaks" in the sky....

    You may recognize this lady, she had been featured on Samantha Brown's show. She runs a small cicchetti/wine shop off the beaten path in Venice. Best cichetti in Venice!

    Thanks. I thought it looked familiar. We walked past that several times on our way to the grocery story on the Zatarre, by Basilio
