I want to go back.
Ahhh. And to a degree, this Expedia video provides the cheapest, fastest and perhaps the most intensely beautiful way to go. Not that being there is not the best. It is. But few tourist videos surmount the beauty of this one, and the narrator’s voice is almost as sensual as the city itself. Here are some of the many nicknames of Venice: “La Dominante,” “Serenissima,” “Queen of the Adriatic,” “City of Water,” “City of Masks,” “City of Bridges,” “The Floating City,” and “City of Canals.”
Victoria and I visited Venice in 2005. It is the world’s most beautiful city – any doubters? – but as I often as I return to my photographic record, this video shows how many places we failed to see. It shows the range of Venetian beauty, the grand down to the subtle.
