Venice 2014

"Mark in Venice!"

In May of 2014, I returned to Venice for six (6) nights and seven (7) days, which is rather long for a European traveler. I wanted a chance to really live in this city! I only ran through it for a day the last time I was here in 2011. Staying here for a week was an amazing experience, although I found myself in the midst of the busy season, or more exactly, the beginning of it. Below, I have put together some photographs of my stay, along with some thoughts about the city. I hope you enjoy it.
