If the Walls Can Speak in Venice – Wanderlust @59

Scroll down to content
“A realist, in Venice, would become a romantic by mere faithfulness to what he saw before him.” -Arthur Symons.

Imagine a city interconnected by canals and bridges … a romantic gondola ride … an Italian serenade … waterfront palaces … winding canals … colourful facades of buildings …

It is like you are transported to a Hollywood movie set or cruising through a painting while your gondolier zig zags along the grand canal. If you’re lucky enough, you’ll be serenaded with Italian songs complete with an accordion.

But what I really love about this are the the walls of Venice. There is so much texture and colour and for sure so much history and story behind them.The cracks on the walls, the chipped paint, the dark signs of mold, the rusted railings are all part of the beauty that is Venice.

This was a very enjoyable experience… our gondolier didn’t sing but a bonus was, one couple in our tour group had their honeymoon so we were entertained by their gondolier singing in a pleasantly loud beautiful voice all throughout our ride.
