Venice is always worth a visit: in winter for its light; in summer for its sunny days; in autumn for its romantic atmosphere…what about spring? Here are a few good reasons:
“The winter light in this city! […] As long as this city exists, as long as winter light shines upon it, Kodak shares are the best investment” J. Brodsky
Venice has a unique beauty in winter, which Joseph Brodsky described in poetic terms:
“The sky is brisk blue, the sun, escaping its golden likeness beneath the foot of San Giorgio, sashays over the […] lagoon’s lapping ripples; […] under the colonnades of the Palazzo Ducale, [someone is playing] just for you, slumped in your white chair and squinting at the pigeons’ maddening gambits on the chessboard of a vast piazza. The espresso at your cup’s bottom is the only small black dot in, you feel, a miles-long radius.”
Beside enjoying the city’s famous fashion shopping attractions, they treated themselves with a photo walk to get high quality photographs as souvenirs of their romantic holidays.
