San Giorgio Basilica, Venice

Sundays in Venice:

I remember sundays being a day to visit Venice and go shopping. Sometimes just for a few hours. Sometimes making a day of it. Today I was reminiscing of the great memories I’ve had there and felt like posting Venice.

Daily Photo:

This recent photo is the first time we’ve been to Venice that the San Giorgio Basilica is not covered with scaffolding. Always a great spot for a sunset of this tiny island. Walking the palisade at night like so many have since the 8th century, you can’t help but feel part of a great history that has originated from here. Replace the cruiseships with sailing vessels and let the winds carry you back to a simpler time or to the late Victorian age, at the turn of the century. When I romantize about Venice of the past, it’s the Victorian era that captures me.
