Photos and the City

destination photography & travel

I did enjoy my stay in this quarter of Venice a lot – it is way quieter than the area around San Marco but still you´re there within minutes. The only thing missing was the view from the Ponte dell´Academia, which is still fully scaffolded. I didn´t bring my camera for this walks, so this is seen through my phone.

Dorsoduro, a hop over the Grand Canal via the Accademia bridge, has as many great museums, galleries and churches, but a fraction of the crowds and costs. Artists and designers are moving into the eastern end of the sestiere, and the north-western tip has the city’s liveliest nightlife, in the alleyways around a large studenty square. (The Guardian)

Early morning walking to the Peggy Guggenheim museum – one of my favourite places in Venice. There are lots of little bars in that area, the bacari, where you can find cheap little snacks the whole day.

Besides the stunning Palazzi along the Canale Grande there are also a lot of more modest worker houses, esp on the west side – just stroll along the winding canals at some time they always end up at the Fondamente Zattere – the beautiful boardwalk along the Giudecca Canale.

Or just watch how Gondolas are made – vis a vis is a great little wine bar and it´s the perfect spot to enjoy some vino and antipasti.
