If you thought Venice was nice during the day, wait until it gets dark, then your looking at picturesque Churches, Cathedrals, and canals. All very pretty and very easy to Photograph without a tripod as there are plenty of walls and mooring posts for which to prop your camera on top of, sweet!
I did wander around the streets and canals, it was getting dark and I tended to stick with routes I knew from the morning when I was checking out potential photographic points. It all seemed very safe and there was plenty of foot traffic.
And the Grand Finale shot before heading back to join my Contiki Group – the Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute.
