Photo Friday: Venice, Italy

In January of 2008, I was backpacking my way around Europe for 2 months. Italy was at the top of my list to visit, especially Venice. I stayed for several days in this beautiful city, soaking it all in, hopping around all the sights. I really loved Venice, though in some ways it made me sad. Nowadays it’s only a shadow of its former glory, literally sinking and decaying back into the water. It made me wish I could go back and see it 300 years ago when it was a great empire. There are so few people living in Venice now, it’s a city taken over by tourists, but I managed to catch this early morning shot of a back canal of Venetians getting ready to start the day.

Have you ever been to Venice? What was your impression of this famous city?

    Nice! I’m stopping there for Semana Santa, and I’m pretty excited to see it, overrun by tourists or not!

    Venice is one of those places you have to see in your lifetime, the sooner the better. Its full of tourists and expensive as f*** but its so incredible, no place like it in the world. i hope you have an awesome time there!

    I was not wanting to go there due to the touristy thing, but Mario insists — so we’re going! I hope I can get a genuine picture of Venice, though!
