I have published here also some snapshots taken during my last visit of Venice, on a rainy day. Please point to the images with the mouse index for more information.

San Marco Cathedral St. Mark's Square and the Cathedral

With this page I finish the Venetian suite, as seen on stamps, on postcards and on my snapshots, with the recommendation for everyone to visit this beautiful and quite uncommon Italian city.

"The light of the proudly Venice extinguished", wrote in a nostalgic sonnet the 19th century Romanian poet Mihail Eminescu. Even if nostalgia is still present, quite  everywhere, it is a living city, thanks to its cultural development, its film festival, its economy, and last but not least, thanks to millions of tourists from the whole world who give to its streets a permanent fresh breath.
