Last Day in Venice

Oct 3, 2012

These photos were taken the last day Caroline and I were in Venice. I could have spent weeks taking photos as each turn of the narrow streets are filled with gorgeous architecture. We spent the morning and early afternoon just roaming around seeing as much as we could and believe me we covered a lot of ground.

  • Photos 1, 2 and 3 were taken in the Museum of Music. It is a free museum that the museum that showcases the life of Antonio Vivaldi who was a composer and musician from Venice.
  • Photo 4 is of San Moise Church.
  • Photo 5, 6, 7 and 8 were taken while we were roaming the streets.
  • Photos 9 and 10 are of Santa Maria della Salute. I walked for what seemed like forever to see this and must admit it was so worth every single step. Santa Maria della Salute church is supported by over one million timber piles. Beyond the church is Punta della Dogana, upon which stands a 17th century tower crowned by two bronze Atlases supporting a golden globe. From the 15th century onward, duty on goods arriving from overseas was extracted on this side.
  • Photo 11 was taken at the point and you can see the Bell Tower.

Mid-afternoon we all met at the Bell Tower in Saint Mark’s Square to take an incredible tour of the Doge’s Palace. Laura arranged for us to take the Secret Itineraries Tour and it was awesome.

  • Photos 1, 2 and 3 were taken in Saint Mark’s Square.
  • Photos 4 through 15 are all of the Doge’s Palace. They did not leave off one single detail. Every square inch of the palace was so ornate. It is a truly spectacular place to tour.

So that is it… my Italy trip is complete and now I sit back in reality with one deadline after another. But, I’m blessed and I love what I do and now have loads of photos to use in projects. If you want to go to Italy and do some creating at the same time you need to check out Laura’s upcoming retreat next year in June. You will not be disappointed.

Hugs!
