Going through more of my thousands of Venetian photographs.... On my first day in Venice, I spent some time in Piazza San Marco. The light was glorious, and I continued to snap photos after sundown.
Venice, Day One: Wandering
Going through more of my thousands of Venetian photographs from my visit last December.... On my first day in Venice, I wandered around the Castello and San Marco districts as the sun was setting. Here are photos before and after darkness fell.

Venice, Palazzo Ducale
If there is a more breathtaking view than walking out of the ticket area into the Palazzo Ducale courtyard just off of the Piazza San Marco, then... I will eat (a delicious piece of cake in the shape of) my hat. The Doge's Palace is often overrun with tourists, but with good reason: it is truly a must-see destination. It's a glorious mix of late-medieval and renaissance architectures in ways that only Venice could devise.
Venice, Day 5: Giardinetti Reali
On day 5 of my Venetian adventures in December 2015, I visited the Giardinetti Reali. It's a wonderful little oasis of calm and greenery, steps away from the wild humanity of Piazza San Marco. The last time I was there the park was overrun delightfully with cats. The cats now though are all gone, as they are gone from every corner of Venice...
