Venezia 2018

#41
By mid afternoon, the sun had come out. Took another walk toward Piazza San Marco. Amazingly enough, Venice is less crowded this afternoon - no line into the basilica. The floor was wet in places but looked okay. "No photo" was being enforced by several men.

I continued my walk and stopped to see the Scala del Bovolo. We rented a third floor apartment right across from it in 2007 for six weeks.

The belltower of Chiesa di San Stefano is still leaning

Then to the Zattere to see the sunset

I love the way Bellini's painted frame is almost indistinguishable from the architectural framing here - probably my second favourite Bellini (and thus, for me, my second favourite painting in total) in Venice. The one in the Frari's Sacristy is, unsurprisingly, my favourite!

Revisiting the Scuola di San Rocco is still so overwhelming. It's hard to know where to look first.

The treasury just opened after being closed for a century. It is up another two flights of stairs.

We have walked by the Scuola Grande dei Carmini (off Campo Margherita) numerous times in the past but have never visited until Friday. There was only another couple visiting while we were there.

It is known for its Tiepolo ceiling

Sunday, we decided to just take a walk. Crowd wasn't too bad until we got close to Piazza San Marco where there were waves of tour groups. The line to get into the Doges Palace was very long. But we continued on, all the way to the Sant'Elena.

This, too, is Venice -
