Here’s one shot from a three hour stroll around Venice yesterday afternoon. I mostly stuck around the less hectic and busy Dorsoduro district waiting for the crowds to thin at the Guggenheim Collection. They never did and I decided I wasn’t up for elbowing my way through one of my favorite museums in Europe. Another time.
This was snapped in the Campo San Maurizio which is on the other side of the Grand Canal in the San Marco sestiere, or district. Venice’s historical center is made up of six districts, or sestieri. I’m very happy to report that Venice appears to still have more dogs than cats. The rodent population probably agrees with me, too.
A mini-gallery from the afternoon forthcoming once I’m on the ground in Ohio later this week.
