Photo Diary: Venezia ha il mio cuore – Venice has my heart
April 3, 2020
Mary Shelley once said, ‘There is something so difference in Venice from any other place in the world, that you leave at once all accustomed habits and everyday sights to enter an enchanted garden’.
Shelley was of course, correct. There is no other place like Venice in the entire world, for no matter if Vegas, Epcot or even London tries to recreate the magic of the city… the real charm can only be found at its heart in the North of Italy.
Ive always had a desire to visit Venice, and it had long since been on my list of top places to see. So when I had the opportunity last year to visit, although just for a day, I couldn’t wait to see what the fuss was about.
Boy was it worth the hype.
Venice is a sort of time capsule (barring of course the thousands of tourists) the city is quaint, charming and romantic, and is a beautiful blend of oriental and renaissance Italian aesthetics. And although, we had only spend a day there, it was enough to make me crave a chance to really explore, and I knew I had to go back. So…when I found out that the Carnivale de Venezia was in February, I booked the trip and all I had to do was wait.
The following pictures are just a snap shot into our whistle stop trip to Venice in February when the weather was sunny, as if it was spring, and the city was bustling with the carnival spirit. So without further ado, I hope you enjoy a trifle of my pictures taken on my whistle-stop trip to Venice!
