|View of the city from the Campanile,|
the bell tower in Piazza San Marco
|Local weekend flea market, with|
additional handmade items for Christmas.
|Under the Rialto bridge, which has|
shops lining both sides as it arches
over the Grand Canal. One of the most
photographed structures in Venice.
|Beautiful buildings facing the water.|
|One of the Grimani patriarchs, no label in the Palace to|
say which one. The family had 3 Doges of Venice,
and a Cardinal. Judging from other paintings,
this is probably Marino Grimani, around 1596
|Inside the Grimani Palace looking up into the dome.|
|View out a window to the|
|Sunny day reflections in a canal.|
|Beautiful carved black gondola.|
|Two gondoliers chatting with others across the water.|
This boat is for locals, it's the type you stand up in
while crossing the canal, nothing romantic here!!
|A copy of the famous Laocoon sculpture,|
in the Grimani Palace. The original,
with missing arms, is in the Vatican.
