VENEZIA - VENICE - VENISE- VENEDIG - VENECIA my way

I want to introduce you Venice (Venezia in Italian), one of the most beautiful and fascinating cities in the world.

In live in Padua, which is 30 minutes by car or train from Venice, so it is not so hard for me to join this marvelous place in the middle of the lagoon.

That’s why Venice appears to my eyes family and unknown at the same time.

My intention is to add images to this thread, narrating the city from the point of view of a "stranger", offering nevertheless some inputs for seeing it in a different way from the one of the occasional tourist.
Venice is a very beautiful city that requires, approaching it, also a lot of humility.

And now, let’s go to start this Venetian tour.

WELLS

A way to know Venice is to observe its wells: we can find them everywhere, in squares and streets.
