I love the views you get when you get into the back streets and canals of Venice. Wandering around I stumbled across this glimpse of the Grand Canal and the old prison as the sun was setting.
Some of the more tastefully painted houses on the incredible island of Burano, Venice, which is nothing short of a visual spectacle. Meandering around its narrow alleys and along its charming canals is a great way to spend a lazy afternoon.
The view from Sirmione on Lake Garda is stunning. As the Lake narrows the mountains rise and tumble sharply into the water. This photograph reminds me of ‘A Room with a View’ or ‘Tea with Mussolini’ – it evokes that feeling of lazy days abroad, the Grand Tour and travel by rail!
No visit to Venice is complete without a trip to see the Bridge of Sighs, with it’s stunning Italian Renaissance architectural features. Gondoliers regularly use the Rio di Palazzo, passing under the Bridge of Sighs – it’s hard to imagine a more typically Venetian view than this.
