Pictures of Venice, Veneto and Italy

The thing that struck me when I first visited Venice, so very many years ago as a young girl, was just how vibrant everything was.

Piazza San Marco, Venice

I walked out of the station and laid eyes on the Grand Canal. The sparkling light, bright colors of the boats, and the translucent blue of the water was something I never expected.

In most photos Venice looked grey and dull - in winter it can be - but on a bright summers day it most certainly isn't and I was determined to find photos that captured that.

Only a few of my photos were good enough. I have to boast a little here and say that I am getting much better than I was in the beginning. My husband though disagrees and reckons it is just the camera that is better...hmmm!

Veneto is not only Venice though. The photos of Verona, and those of the other areas of the Veneto, clearly show just how enchanting this magical region is.

In fact we have photos from all over Italy and every tiny corner has something of exceptional beauty to offer. If you aren't in Italy right now I promise these photos will start you dreaming Italian dreams :-)

Do you have photos, or anything about Italy, to share? You can do so at the bottom of the page or on our Facebook page.

Share your Italian Moments & Photos

I include a lot of my photos, taken around Italy, on the site. I'm not a great photographer but sometimes pictures of people and places you love don't need to be "professional" to convey a whole lot of magic. If you too have some special Italian photos & moments please share them!
