Offering a unique 180° view across the water all along the southern edge of San Marco (including Saint Mark’s Basilica and the Doge’s Palace) around past the small island with the Church of San Giorgio Maggiore and then Lido on the far right. This is your go to location for scenic panoramic shots. It’s a little out of the way and not as crowded as the main waterfront walkways but the view is spectacular (when visibility is good).

Note: These photographs (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger. To see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer click any of the images.

Tree’s are an unusual sight here in Venice – pretty much all of the land above water is paved with buildings or laneways.

My wife are still wandering the laneways exploring Venice. Many European cities are suitable for exploration on foot however this is especially so with Venice. They say the best way to see it is to just get lost – I can wholeheartedly agree. Of course you can (and should) take a Vaporetto ride along the whole Grand Canal but the best way to really experience Venice is to just explore the laneways of the various sestiere (or neighbourhoods) on foot.

For instance we spent the first half of our afternoon exploring Dorsoduro (one of the six sestieri of Venice).
