Ala Napoleonica

Ala Napoleonica

This was taken from the highest point in Venice, the Campanile in the Piazza San Marco. It looks west over a wing of the Procuratie Vecchie that Napoleon had built. You know, that guy really got around.

It breaks my heart to think that this magical city might be destroyed by the water that defines it. It really is an amazing place. No cars, no mopeds, just twisty little walkways, canals, people, water, history and architecture. It really is unique and special. If you have a chance to go there, by all means, make the trip. I've heard complaints that it can be packed with tourists but I didn't find it bad at all. We went in may though which may not be peak tourist season.

Looking at this photo makes me want to just hop on a train and go there right now.

Hmm, I am on easter break from school for the next ten days...
