Smile Something Different: Venezia, It (big post!)

.. and now for something completely different. A city where there are no car or motorcycle sounds, no constant exhaust fumes.. where the sounds of people walking and talking dominate the streets.

Venezia, It

Great thread, Venice is one of a kind. It's been a while since I was there but I recall the city to be dead at night. All the young people who worked in the city during the day commuted to and from the surrounding cities where they could afford to live. I seem to remember a lot of elderly Italians and loads of tourists.

^ yup, that's exactly the case. It's really nice to walk around at night though because it's so quiet (and super-safe).

Wow, great collection of pictures, Tony!

I see you liked Venezia very much, didn´t you?

It´s a spectacular city, a romantic place everybody must visit someday. I was there once, many years ago, and I got surprised for its beauty. It´s a unique city in the world. Its narrow streets, its water channels, its food, its atmosphere, makes it unique.

Congratulations for your very pretty pictures and thank you for making me to remember Venezia. I´ve to return there.

Greeetings from Madrid, Spain!

Great photos!

Looks like you covered quite a bit of the city. Fortunately there are still a few parts of the city (particularly parts of Dorsoduro and San Polo) that aren't overrun with tourists year-round and where you can still get a glimpse of the authentic Venice.

Thanks again everybody!

Danny: I'm thinking of going to Madrid (& Barcelona) maybe next year.

Raptor: I know what you mean, there are little pockets of "authentic" Venice here & there.
