Fondamenta Dandolo, Venice, (osm)
During the day, the main routes to St. Marc’s Square, the Rialto, and the Canale Grande are busy – the nearer you get to those attractions, the more congested are the alleys. You must be a diehard tourist to enjoy this, but the fine thing in Venice is, that it’s still easy to escape: minutes only, and you can find a place, a bridge, a channel that looks almost forlorn. And of course, if you manage to get up early, you can find a wonderful, even poetic place. I didn’t manage this time, but most unfortunately I have to come back on a business trip in october, when it’s supposed to be empty, cold and hopefully foggy.
