Rio de la Toletta, Venice, Italy
This week’s travel photo comes from the fascinating canals of Venice, arguably the most photogenic city in the world.
Now, I need you to be honest with me. What did you think when you first read this sign?
Admit it. You’re as immature as I am and thought it meant toilet river, which, of course, is what prompted me to take the photo. Well, a quick online search reveals the translation of toletta from Italian to English is dressing table and, in some cases, toilet. I guess you can file this new found knowledge under useless trivia you’ll never need.
Dorkiness aside, I love the look of the weathered brick wall and the fading shadows on the colourful homes. How cool are those doors that open directly on to the river?
