Venice Photos

Venice, Italy is a fascinating and photogenic city. These are photos I took during a trip to in 2015.

This is the main album that contains most of the photos.

The defining characteristic of Venice is its system of waterways. The main island sits in the middle of the Venetian lagoon, is bisected by the s-shaped Grand Canal and is criss-crossed with hundreds of small canals known as rii.
