Posts Tagged ‘Venice’

Sometime ago, I came across this wonderful photoblog, Feet First which features the travelling feet of a couple (and later on, their daughter) documenting their travels. Some might consider this a cliche or somewhat cheesy but I’ve always thought that taking photos of my feet on my travels is a fun way of recording adventures and memories.

Piazza San Marco (St Mark’s Square), 12th-19th century, civic and religious square, architecture: Byzantine to Renaissance. Nearly two football fields long, the plaza is surrounded by the offices of the republic – the Procuratie Vecchie or “old offices” (16th century Renaissance) and the Procuratie Nuove or “new offices” (17th century High Renaissance). Basilica di San Marco (11th century) and the Campanile stand out in the background.

The distinct influence of Eastern-style architecture underlines Venice’s connection with Byzantium.

Getting lost in Venice should be on the must-do list of visitors to this fascinating ‘City of Water’. Visual delights await those who wander around the meandering interior alleyways and canal walkways (fondamenta), explore the intersecting small piazzas (campiello), look up to the lop-sided yet seemingly very much in place windows that dot the wonky facades of the rows of houses, chance upon intriguing juliet balconies and discover over 400 footbridges connecting the alleyways which crosses over 150 canals.
