Reflections about Venice. 1st day

Hello, everyone!

Finally I have some time to show you some photos (I mean, a lot) from Venice, from the city of lagoon. In fact, from one of romantic cities in the world.

When we arrived, there were not so many people, because it was 25th of December and usually people celebrate Christmas on this day. We too, but this year we decided to not stay at home. So when we arrived Venice was nearly empty and kind of sad. But at night walk you could feel feelings of mistery and exciting walking on empty calle and crossing the bridges, catching the reflections of lights from the window on the water.

But now just take a look at the pictures as I’ve seen Venice:

So is it a black clog on the water or just a gondola?

is gondola!

so let’s immagine: morning, you take a coffee and go outside to greet sun, and, oh, so surrealistic – you look down and it’s water

St. Mark’s campanile. It was built in 1514, but collapsed almost after 4 centuries – in 1902 and this one, that you see in photo, was built in 1912. Why did it collapse? By itself – it started to crack and in some days tumbled down

and the bridge of constitution – that connects Rome square (there is the bus station) and train station. it’s very modern and built new (finished in 2008)

Soooo, in some days will be a post about the second day in crowdy Venice! Stay tuner 😉
