I love the title of this post – Venice – Where the streets are paved with water. Your photos of the streets of water are great. Makes me want to visit.
I especially like the gondole photo, gorgeous. I loved my visit to Venice and you have given us such beautiful images of the magical city on water.
We went to Venice years ago and indeed, the streets are paved with water! hahaha And even though some friends warned us the water was smelly, we did not find that at all to be the situation. It’s another place in Italy we want to go again! Thanks Ken for the great pics.
I adore your photographs – especially the one taken of the Roman Catholic Church.
I have never visited Italy. Venice looks incredibly romantic.
What beautiful images of Venice, Where The Streets are Paved with Water! I didn’t get a chance to fo there on my visits to Italy. Now I know that I have to go back! Spectacular!
I really want to visit Venice after seeing your beautiful pictures. Someone I know came back from Venice just last week and he had a great time. They always talk about Venice being a romantic city. From your pictures, I can see what they are talking about.
Your pictures are breathtaking. Venice is truly a unique town. I have been there several times and never get tired of Venice uniqueness.
Venice is a beautiful place that’s part of our European heritage. Pity it’s sinking:-)
Ken, these photos are gorgeous and truly bring out the magic of Venice. My favourite photo is “Twilight on the Canale della Giudecca”. What a gorgeous shot. Thanks for sharing.
These pictures speak a lot about Venice.This place is really one of its kind.
I loved the canals in Amsterdam and can only imagine how grand it would be to do it up in style in Venice. I thought it was funny that our tour guide said those who have partied a wee bit too hard have been known to go around town and throw unchained bikes into the water. I can imagine the same thing must happen from time to time in Venice as well 😉
I spent more time in tourist areas rather than residential neighborhoods, but I don’t remember seeing a bike in Venice. You can’t go very far without crossing a bridge which involved steps so it isn’t very bike friendly. You walk or you take a boat.

That’s interesting that there are few bikes, but if the bridges all have steps, that makes sense. Bikes would be dangerous!
I used to love stopping in at Venice when I was a tour guide in Europe. It is an incredible city with a history to match. Great images of this truly photogenic city.
Great pictures. Venice is a city with such a great historical past. I want to visit it someday.
Ahh, I just felt my blood pressure drop, looking through these pictures! I lived in Venice for a semester in college. One of the best things I ever did in my life. Thanks for bringing back wonderful memories. BTW, if you look at your 3rd picture (Ponte dell’Accademia) you can see the house I lived in, second from the right, cream colored. 🙂
That must have been an amazing place to live.
Venice looks very nice. It’s amazing to see a city on water like that.
And even tough it’s a crowded, busy city it’s amazingly quiet because there are no cars.
Venice is beautiful! Your photos of the streets of water are great.
You captured Venice very well x
thanks for sharing Ken
