  6. Candy cane poles... Appears to be a very adaptable city and citizens, How they must love it not to leave it when it's nearly underwater.

    1. sadly, the population is decreasing. It is hard to live when everything is brought in by boat...and expensive.

  12. All gorgeous pictures. Now I need to know...why is it called The Bridge of Sighs? And is the water stinky?

    1. the bridge spans a space between interrogation rooms and a prison ..
      "The bridge name, given by Lord Byron in the 19th century, comes from the suggestion that prisoners would sigh at their final view of beautiful Venice through the window before being taken down to their cells."

      I have never noticed any odor except an odor of the sea. it is tidal water, moving in and out from the sea and lagoon. I have heard that, but it has never been my experience.

  28. Gorgeous photos. Venice is one of those place I love visiting via books and hope to make it to in real life one day.

  29. I love your Venice photos. In my opinion it is one of those cities where it is almost impossible to take a bad photo.
    A bit crowded, touristy and overpriced for my taste, but really hard to beat from the photogenic perspective.
