The Waterways of Venice

Venice is such a beautiful city, full of photographic charm.  I was here in the fall of 2006 and was barely into photography.  I got a couple of nice shots, but would love to go back and get a few thousand more. 

One of the highlights is the sail into Venice - you go though miles of picturesque waterways and can see St. Mark's Square from the deck. 

St. Mark's Square is a fun place to just walk around and shop.  You have to purchase some Murano glass...  and you can not leave hungry!
Pizzas, pastas - all kinds of wonderful Italian cuisine - but most of all, the gelato. There's nothing like it.

There's also nothing like a gondola ride through the waterways of Venice.  Truly one of life's pleasures.

I would love to go back again.  And again.
