The Floating City
~ dress Urban Outfitters
The City of Water, renowned for its beauty and opulent history was the final stop on our trip to Italy. Built upon 117 small islands Venice is a refreshing spectacle of romance and passion for beautiful architecture.
I could happily wander the canals for hours with no direction just desire to capture images. Truth be told there isn’t a way to best describe Venice as it is a wonder of the world which should be visited by anyone who loves a fairytale setting. I just wish there wasn’t any tourists!
“This was Venice, the flattering and suspect beauty - this city, half fairy tale and half tourist trap, in whose insalubrious air the arts once rankly and voluptuously blossomed, where composers have been inspired to lulling tones of somniferous eroticism.”
