    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 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.

  11. 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.

    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. 🙂
