My first trip to Venice, Italy: part 5

in travel •  2 months ago

Grand Canal. It is the most popular Venetian canal that passes through the whole city. It starts near the train station and then in the form of the letter S covers the whole of Venice. The Grand Canal ends at the customs building, which merges with the canal San Marco and La Giudecca.

Just look at these streets and houses that have stood for many centuries, they "glimpsed" to the distant times past.

Some streets have their unusual names, which came from ancient times, connected with local professions or with some events: "Street of Friendly Love", "Sugar Passage", "Wide Street of Proverbs".

The monument to Niccolo Tommaseo - He was an Italian writer, philologist, literary and politician, participant of Risorgimento.

Eternal struggle, the city is already twice partially rebuilt because it gradually goes under water.

One of the old nicknames of the city is "La Serenissima" that logically means "serene", paradoxically, people were restless. To survive in those days, they built ships, swam on seas and traded, and sometimes they were pirates.

Hi,
I liked the way you do photography. The pictures are so beautiful & mesmerizing that as if it’s asking to pack my bags and visit the same as soon as possible.
I am getting this feeling because the way you presented the beauty in your pictures.
And you also tried well to make us describe the place you visited.
I bet you must have enjoyed this place very much.
Please keep posting such pictures and your observations.
