I have used a few effects in an attempt to create an artistic feel.

We were lucky enough to see the first female Gondola, Alexandra Hai in Venice.

Walking the bridges and canals was our favourite pass time.

Around any corner can be another postcard picture.

This is the vaporetto stop for San Marco, we found this was the

most economicalway to get around Venice, you can buy

tourist travel cards for 12, 24, 36, 48 & 72 hours

to use as hop on hop off passes.


Look for these sign’s around the canals to show where the TRAGHETO stops are, as a cheap and really fun way of getting across the canals. Before gondolas got into retirement they are used as ferry’s to get people from one side to the other.

MSC cruise ship leaving venice makes the city the look small.

Vaporetto’s are a great way to get around.

Some lucky vegemites being picked up by private motor boat.

Gondola’s at peak hour.

This is a more expensive way to see Venice, by cruise ship. But the view is awesome…

The most beautiful way to leave Venice, looking back into a golden sunset.
