Dreamy Venice is like nowhere else. It’s as though a city from another world fell from the sky and landed in the lagoon. It’s difficult to imagine how else such a place could exist.

In truth, the dozens of tiny islands were inhabited by refugees hoping to escape foreign invasions. The irony of today’s tourist hordes overwhelming Venice is an obvious one, but it’s easy to forget about the cruise ships’ masses when there are so many magical sights to behold.

Echoes of singing gondoliers, mirror reflections in calm canals, and sunsets over historic buildings floating on water are all enough to set even the most calloused heart into romantic flutters.

For images from elsewhere in the Venetian Lagoon, please check out my photos of Burano, Italy.
