Venice – well was it romantic?
It was certainly crowded, noisy but I wouldn’t have called it “romantic.” Still, I suppose if you don’t arrive there until 11 o’clock in the morning during a week when Italian schools are on holiday, what else can you expect?
However it was also an exciting place – what a range of buildings. Including some very odd features
Great potential for panorama shots.
Even the obligatory picture of St Mark’s Square could be turned in to one.
And the Gondoliers? Certainly the ones I encountered seemed more like a bunch of bickering London cabbies with striped shirts than off duty operatic impresarios.
It was good to get away from the crowds. Just a few streets away from the Rialto Bridge there was a small slightly run-down square where the real Venetians lived. A square, a church, a well – all that avid readers of Miss Garnet’s Angel would appreciate
If not romantic – an unforgettable day.
