Oh Venice, where do I start? I loved every single second of our time here. What a beautiful, magical place. I could barely stop looking around long enough to catch my breath. We just had one short day to explore this enchanting island, and we spent our time just wandering up and down the canals with me snapping a photo at just about every step. I could not put down my camera! I could’ve easily spent several more days here just walking these streets and taking in the beauty of Venice.
Here’s a peek at what we saw.
Boats looking across the Grand Canal.
Colorful rainbow buildings.
If you click on the photos, you can see the camera, lens, and settings I used to take the photo. I had my Canon 7D and 24-70mm f/2.8 lens with me this day. Oh how I wished for my tripod and wide angle lens though! Especially later for sunset at the Rialto Bridge. There’s also a map to see the GPS location where I was when I snapped the photo, if you’re into that sort of thing. :)
Gondolas on the Grand Canal.
Stopped to snap a picture in front of this beautiful canal.
We had three scoops of gelato every single day while we were in Italy, from a different place each time. Some of the best gelato we had in all of Italy was here in Venice, at La Boutique del Gelato. I am still dreaming about just their plain, simple vanilla and their creamy, dreamy Nutella. How it is possible to be this much in love with vanilla??
Is this a door? So neat. The building next door is a boat repair shop for Venetian vehicles. There’s a crane to lift boats from the water and take them inside for repairs.
Laundry Day in Venice.
Did I mention Kevin lost two pounds while we were in Italy? I did mention the whole three scoops of gelato a day thing, right?
I, on the other hand, am refusing to comment.

Afternoon in Venice.
My favorite, favorite canal we stumbled upon in Venice.
On the street.
Sunset at Ponte San Barnaba.
We made our way back to the Rialto Bridge to watch the sunset.
Gondola ride at sunset, anyone?
Loved these colorful buildings at the golden hour.

Here’s a photo map of where all we went in Venice. It’s easier to see in the larger map, but from there you can zoom in and see where each picture was taken across Venice. :)
I hope you guys enjoyed Venice!! I wish I could take you all back there with me. How fun would it be to do a photo tour of Venice?? :)
Thanks so much to Michael Angelo’s for this wonderful opportunity!
