The bridge from the bus station into the city- my first glimpse of Venice!
One of the 423 bridges of Venice:
In this one you can see a gondolier leaning on the rail next to his boat:
The gondolas were all very 'tricked out'- lavish seating, gold painted details, a vase of roses. You can see some grafitti on the wall- one of the things that made me sad in this lovely city.
One of the wider streets: More grafitti...
It is difficult to appreciate the different colors of marble in this picture- there should be better ones in later blogs- it was breathtaking!
