A poem about seeing the world by Herbert Nehrlich ends
“With any luck I shall be longer than expected
and then, before you call me home
there still is Venice, and after that?”
The saying is “See Venice and die” meaning that after such a peak experience, there’s nothing left to do but die. Maybe we wouldn’t go that far, but this city belongs on every bucket list. It is also difficult to describe Venice aside from the great restaurants, bars, the canals, designer glass factories, mask makers, shops, gondolas, architecture and on and on. So the best thing we can offer is to let Venice speak for herself….
We plan to add several posts focused on specific locations in Venice and would welcome impressions of other travelers’ visits.
