There’s not much I can add to what has already been documented and enthused over about the place we visited last weekend on a celebratory city break. And anyway, as I’m feeling inordinately lazy and undisciplined at the moment, I thought a few snaps might suffice.
Well, snaps and some quotations I’ve come across from various people that I reckon sum it up pretty well.
It’s definitely somewhere to visit at least once in a lifetime: it’s magical, surprising, expensive and indulgent. If you go, enjoy to the full.
Fino ad allora…
“In the winter, Venice is like an abandoned theatre. The play is finished, but the echoes remain.”
(Arbit Blatas, sculptor and painter)
“If you read a lot, nothing is as great as you’ve imagined. Venice is — Venice is better.”
(Fran Lebowitz, author)
“Venice is like eating an entire box of chocolate liqueurs in one go.”
