Photographs of Venice

As I was taking a look at the photos I made in Venice I couldn’t help thinking in how many curiosities you can find in the city. I’m going to talk in this chapter about some pics of moments and corners which I especially liked or laugh at. Warning: some of the photos can be very, very typical…
