I have always enjoyed visiting Venice and one of the reasons is that once I move away from the crowds there are some very peaceful sights to be seen.  I like to go off the main path and when I do I’ve found places like this.

VeniceIt was very quiet except for the sound of a boat passing by.  There were no people around and it was a wonderful experience.

VeniceAs I continued walking a found a scene that combines several of my favorite things – water, a bridge, and fresh, crisp laundry hanging from the windows.  Although I didn’t see anyone it shows that even in Venice people are doing everyday tasks but in an artistic way!

  1. When I was in Venice we took a gondola ride with a singing gondolier. Not exactly serene but I loved every tacky, touristy minute of it and it is a great memory! On our own we got lost and I loved that too. Your photos bring back lovely memories.


  2. I can’t even imagine what it would be like to have boats rather than cars pass my window. Something about the water does offer peace.


  3. It’s hard to imagine finding quite spots in Venice. I haven’t visited but most of the images I have seen to the city have been busy ones. So, it was good to take a tour via your images of peaceful parts.


  4. Wonderful serene photos Meg! I have been to Venice twice a long time ago now and I remember the crowds but your walking tour shows you can find some tranquil spots if you are prepared to wander off a little. It looks very calming and peaceful :)
