Step 1 – Palazzo Ducale
Ancient residence of the Doge of Venice, the Doge’s Palace has been restored several times in many centuries due to fires, infiltrations and structural failures. The palace is today extremely interesting both outside, for its gothic architecture, and inside for the museum it hosts and the many artistic elements dating back to the XVI century.
Step 2 – Piazza San Marco
St. Mark’s Square is Venice’s most famous landmark. It is full of charm and particularly inspiring in the early hours of the morning when few people stroll quietly in the square. Moreover, being few above the sea level it is subject to the interesting and peculiar phenomenon of “acqua alta”.
Step 3 – Basilica di San Marco
The cathedral of St. Mark, brilliant example of gothic architecture and a living testimony of Venice’s links with Byzantium, stands in the middle of the magnificent piazza San Marco. Rich in details, mosaics and interesting elements is a symbol of the ancient Venetian wealth and power. Thanks to its opulent design, it is particularly interesting from a photographic point of view.
Step 4 – Canal Grande
The Grand Canal is surrounded by ancient buildings and bridges. Capture the coming and going of the gondolas cruising on the main street of this peculiar city. You can take advantage of the water movements and the reflections on its surface.
Step 5 – Ponte di Rialto
There is always something interesting to capture with your camera from the Rialto bridge. Even on rainy days! Crossing the Grand Canal, the lights and people on this bridge are usually very interesting to be shot, even from the buildings that surround it.
