Canal Grande with gondolas

Three gondolas crossing the Canal Grande... this was taken by my friend Federica from Rialto bridge.

San Giovanni e Paolo

The fa├žade of the public Hospital in San Giovanni e Paolo square... not bad eh?!

Torcello

Torcello island is one of the quietest in the lagoon. There are two medieval churches and a bunch of tiny houses, surrounded by bushes, fields and waters.

Canal Grande

Canal Grande is really special at sunset, when you can admire lights reflecting on water.

Burano island

In Burano there are no gondolas but boats "parked" outside the houses like cars!

Burano island

Burano is really lively and popular, but also quite far from the beaten tracks.

Religious painting of Holy Heart of Jesus just beside the local Communist Party. Quite funny...
