Gumbo's Pic of the Day, Sept. 22, 2013: Wandering the Back "Streets" of Venice


Venice at NightAt night, after the day-trippers leave, Venice takes on a quieter and more mysterious personality. Here, a narrow residential calle connects one of Venice’s small canals, in the Cannaregio district, to a small square with restaurants and shops. Other casual neighborhood bars and restaurants line the bank from which this picture was taken.


Venice is full of famous sights, and famous crowds, but it is also a place that rewards wandering with unusual vistas and quiet neighborhoods. It’s easy to get lost in the small streets and canals, but are you really lost if you’ve found something new? And it’s really not so hard to find your way home.
