Photographer's Note

Classical view of Venice, with piazza San Marco flanked by the Campanile di San Marco on the left and the Palazzo Ducale on the right. The Bridge of Sighs (Ponte dei Sospiri) is visible on the extreme right and St. Mark's Library (Biblioteca Nazionale Marciana) appears on the left of the Campanile. Although everyone who has been to Venice has likely seen this view, I decided to post it because there is no abundance of such images on TE. The yellow crane on the barge doesn't quite fit the historic view, but it is descriptive of the transformations taking place today: a lot is being repaired and restored. The picture is taken from the ferry heading back from Lido to the mainland. Venice is a very, very busy and expensive place, especially during the peak of the tourist season.
