Those advertisements in St Marks Sq and on The Doges Palace! I was reading about them a few weeks ago. Still, one way of making money I suppose. Another nice batch of pics. Thanks.

and the last part:















Sign means 'canal for gondolas'






An oasis of tranquility in a city where vacant land is precious










Grand Canal is a crowded place






Luxury motor boat


Delivery of luggage to hotels

Even the word "Incredible" won't suffice for this city. How's the flooding situation? I noticed plenty of shots with high water.

This was clearly a "high water" day(s)...even though not so high. During "Acqua alta" usually S.Marco is several centimeters under water as it is the lowest point of the city

People shall really visit Venice only in winter...it's so much more pleaseant and less crowded and the atmosphere is just right.

Regarding floods: Italy is building a huge dam system along the 3 main entrance to the Lagoon to regulate the water: the dams will activate if the water is 110 cm higher than the average water, the level at which most of the city goes underwater (S. Marco is flooded if I am not wrong around 90 cm, but they are trying to improve that too with new higher sidewalks along the sea)
