Photo of the Week: On a boat… in Venice

venice-canal

Venice, Italy

This week’s photo comes from the busy canals of Venice. Bonus points if you can name the beautiful building in the backdrop. I’m having a hard time finding it on the Googlesphere?

History, romance and beauty aside, the fact that Venice sits on over 100 small islands and is the world’s only pedestrian city makes it a fascinating destination.

Some people complain that it’s far too touristy, but that doesn’t bother me. The crowds are drawn to Venice for a reason. If you have an interest in history, architecture, photography and/or food, than Venice is for you.

That said, if you plan to visit Venice you better get there soon because it’s apparently sinking five times faster than expected.
