Venice, A Lovely Swamp [Jan. 19th, 2011|12:28 pm]
susan smitten

So I went to Venice for the first time. It was freezing cold and damp and dark, but it was swarming with tourists. I can't imagine how crowded it gets in the summer. In spite of the cold, I found it really quite beautiful. It's a lovely swamp.

These catwalk thingies are used to walk through the streets when they are flooded.

I didn't have a clue why there were "benches" all over the square ... and then it all made sense ;)
