Venice is one of those places that I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with. It´s Venice, there is literally no other place in the world like it, it´s breathtakingly beautiful and so unique that you can´t help but feel the love… but so completely overcrowded and expensive and badly managed that it dulls the shine of the city a bit. But Venice is Venice, and as this was my 3rd time here we were prepared for the madness, sort-of.
I don´t think that these images do much to convey the intensity of the tourism here because we did everything we could to avoid the crowds and I have to admit… when you´re not being jostled by massive tour groups, Venice really is an enchanting place. Just remember to bring your own water (because they´ve closed off all the public fountains and buying bottled water is rediculously expensive) and give yourself plenty time to get hopelessly lost in the maze of lanes and canals.
The images are as classic as Venice itself. Thanks for the trip.
Your photos brought back memories from my time in Italy.
These are such beautiful photographs. Can’t wait to see Venice myself one day.
stunning photos! i agree with it getting quite crowded but a nice place to visit in Venice where the crowds are less is Lido.. have you been? I went to venice last week , check out the moments i captured in my latest blog post http://www.ellierochax.com
