Wednesday Wander – Venice, Italy

Venice 2I recently wrote a piece of flash fiction for one of Sacha Black’s Writespirations, and it seemed to take place in Venice. This took me back to a visit I made there many years ago, and so I thought I’d make Venice this week’s Wednesday Wander destination.

Venice 4I could write loads about Venice. But I won’t. All I’ll say is that it is a place of roses and magic, that Canaletto was right about the light, that it floats like a mirage on the lagoon. That you can meet a man who traces his Venetian lineage back eight hundred years, and another who sings country music, and sells the sweetest strawberries you’ve ever tasted. That the nights are lantern lit, that the roads are made of water and the pavements of whitest stone. That it’s no wonder there were sighs on the Bridge of that name, as the convicted took their last look at this immortal city of wonders.

Venice 1I quite liked it there, obviously 😀

Venice 3Thank you for coming on another Wednesday Wander with me – see you next time!

  1. Venice is a place I would love to go to. I’ve been to Rome, Piza, Florence, Carrara, but never to venice. It’s on the bucket list though and you just made me want it even more. ❤

    1. Thanks Sacha. Of the places I’ve been to in Italy, it’s top on my list of places to return to, with Florence a close second. I’m very keen to go to the Amalfi coast though, I’ve never been there. 🙂
