Below is an assortment of shots from my early explorations of this unique cityscape.
Basilica Di Sanmarco
Basilica Di Sanmarco, and accompanying crowds of tourists
Typical Venetian buildings
Part of the Doge's Palace (Italian: Palazzo Ducale), built in Venetian Gothic style
San Giorgio Maggiore (taken from in front of the Doge's Palace)
View from the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, onto the Grand Canal
Peggy's grave, where she is buried beside her beloved dogs
Sunset over the Southern Lagoon
A quiet street gives some respite from the constant stream of tourists
Gardens in the city, for hiding in the shade
My first bellini, at Caffe' Margaret Duchamp in Campo Santa Margherita, perfect spot for people watching
I'll post soon about the job itself and what Venice Takeaway is about. We Stewards have a tumblr blog that we kept up to date with the daily and weekly goings on.
