Travel Photos – Venice in the Rain

Print pagePDF pageEmail page

The first time we came to Venice 7 years ago, at about the same period, we had stunning weather. This time, we arrived in the rain and it seems it may last quite a few days. But the moment we started walking through the tiny streets from Ospedale vaporetto to our home exchange in Castello just behind Piazza San Marco, I felt the magic of Venice descend upon me. Here are my first impressions.

The gondolas didn't do much business while it was raining but each time there was a lull, the canals were full!

    I just love getting absorbed in your so interesting Sites, thank you. Have been a fan for about a year now. Went to some of the destinations you speak about when in France last year. It’s a long way from Adelaide( originally Sydney/ Newtown) Australia, as you know, to Europe, so now indulge in memories with your great pics. Also doing French, or trying too, to keep the brain in some order with the aging process!!!!
