Beautiful Venice Italy

Sometimes when you gaze out at Venice you think...is this real? It seems too beautiful and too different from any other city to be anything but a gorgeous dream.

You fear you'll awake and find it all an illusion...except you never need to. This is beautiful Venice and it's real.

Throughout my site I try to take you through this city, discovering forgotten corners as we go and looking at the most famous sights in new ways.

When I originally started on this journey of exploration, many years back, I was alone apart from the help of my family. As the years have gone by we have explored further and further. Through the Veneto and into many other regions of Italy.

Slowly over time we realised we were not alone and many new friends have joined us, mostly via our Facebook page, sharing tips and photos - many of them absolutely stunning. 

These here are shared by Oktay Kasman, a retired architect who lives in İstanbul, and has a passion for painting and photography. Oktay has been to Italy many times and Venice is his favourite city in the world.  It's mine too Oktay :-)

Thank you Oktay, I have really enjoyed your photos. If you have enjoyed them too please leave a comment, like the page and/or pin the photos.
