Hidden Venice

Most of the action in Venice is on the main streets. That’s where the shops are located, and where you can get from one place to another without getting hopelessly lost. When you go off on a side street, it may be completely empty, but occasionally you get a glimpse of courtyards and secret gardens.

La mayor parte de la acción en Venecia está en las calles principales. Ahí es donde se encuentran las tiendas, y donde se puede llegar de un lugar a otro sin perder irremediablemente. Cuando sales en una calle lateral, puede estar completamente vacío, pero ocasionalmente se obtiene una visión de patios y jardines encantados.

 

We found this little piazzetto at a dead end.

Encontramos este pequeño piazzetto en un callejón sin salida.

There is a pretty garden over the wall. They appear to have a door to the water where their motor boat is parked, too.

Hay un bonito jardín sobre la pared. Parecen tener una puerta al agua donde su barco de motor está aparcado, también.

Bridge after bridge.

I am a retired archaeologist and I like to travel, especially to places where you can walk along the shore or watch birds. My husband Jonathan and I travel for more than half the year every year, seeing all the places that we haven't gotten to yet.
