Unforgettable views of Venice

Unforgettable views of Venice @itravelinitaly_com #italy unforgettable views of Venice The glimpses of Venice always give great emotion and something new to discover. Many of the photos that we take in Venice, over the bridges or between the streets, are glimpses in whole or in part identical to postcards we see in the shops.  After all, the best views, the privileged observation points are the ups and downs of the bridges and the picturesque streets.  would like to receive your feedback.  Share and Post a review on our profile.


VISIT VENICE IN WINTER. THE TIMELESS CHARM OF THE LAGOON. @itravelinitaly_com The canals, the gondolas, the calli that welcome you with their millenary history: the inlaid, damp facades of the ancient buildings, the gates overlooking the canals consumed by salt, the carnival masks that look at you from every window. The imagination immediately flies to the times of the Doges, and as I walk, I imagine those finely decorated buildings becoming the stage for worldly parties, grand dances for ladies and knights. I hear the rustle of cloaks on the pavements, and see hundreds of dresses woven with fine Indian fabrics walking towards the gala evening in the half-light of the streets. I imagine the busy, fast and discreet gondoliers escorting the nobles from one channel to another...  would like to receive your feedback.  Share and Post a review on our profile.

In Venice a characteristic briccola.

@itravelinitaly_com In Venice a characteristic briccola made up of five poles and a higher central pole is called a dama;  this type of briccola is used to indicate the beginning of a lagoon channel.  In Genoa the briccole were built with laricio pine (P. nigra laricio) imported from the annexed Corsica.  would like to receive your feedback.  Share and Post a review on our profile.

Fantastic canals and sinuous canals of magical Venice.

Fantastic canals and sinuous canals of magical Venice. @itravelinitaly_com Large and important, such as the Giudecca Canal, the Grand Canal and the Cannaregio Canal.  All the others waterways are called rio;  sometimes they take the diminutive of "riello" or even of "rio menuo" (rio minute). The canals are generally very narrow and often sinuous channels, given their fluvial derivation, and it is for this reason that the shape of Venice has been conditioned in its development from the beginning, and this for construction reasons. In fact, all the buildings in Venice are placed directly or through piles on a particularly resistant layer formed of compressed clay and sand called “caranto”, which is located a few meters deep.  would like to receive your feedback.  Share and Post a review on our profile.

Gondolas and gondoliers in Venice

  gondolas and gondoliers in Venice @itravelinitaly_com The gondola is a very special boat.  It is asymmetrical and can be operated with a single propeller oar.  Measure m.  10.85 in length per m.  1.40 approximately in width.  It weighs 350 kg.  and is made up of about 280 pieces of wood of different nature.  The iron of the prow of the gondolas, called 'fero da pròra' or 'dolfin', serves to balance the weight of the gondolier.  Under the main blade it has a kind of comb formed by six teeth (prongs) which have the precise meaning of remembering the 'sestieri' (= six zones) with which Venice is divided.  A tooth extends backwards (towards the center of the gondola) and indicates the island of Giudecca, separated from the homonymous canal from the other islands of Venice which form a compact nucleus.  Sometimes three friezes are inserted between the six prongs that join the prongs two by two, indicating the three bridges over the Grand Canal: the Scalzi bridge (S

Venice: Procuratie Vecchie

This factory surrounds the Piazza San Marco, on the side of the Clock Tower.  There are no precise data on its time of foundation, nor is it known who was the first architect, whose name remains invaded to the glory of his evident merit.  The very first idea came from the genius of Sebastiano Ziani, who began to put love on that site, buying the land from the nuns of San Zaccaria, and adorning the circuit of houses, with columns on the windows, in the shape of a runner, for which he turned from  all sides, and synchronous authors also narrate, that the recent mansions had the rooms pierced by arches and with loggias.  Having then ordered the Senate that the procurators live on the square, it became necessary to build a factory there for their continued residence.  Below, as we have from Gallicciolli's memoirs, precisely in 1365, Domenico Gaffaro, bishop of Cittanova, a rector of San Basso, made a contract with the procurators, for the exchange of the houses on the Piazz

Venice: The Doge's Palace has a myriad of treasures both inside and outside its walls.

The Doge's Palace has a myriad of treasures both inside and outside its walls.  An example are the Capitals of the columns on the ground floor of the Doge's Palace help the understanding of the Palace, as they are an iconography of Venetian power and how this power was seen and shown to the Venetian people.  The main consideration is that the whole palace had to be a symbol, located as it is as a lucky gateway to the city, in which the rulers sat and important decisions were taken and justice was also imparted.  As you can see on the facade towards the San Marco Basin, Justice is located at the top of the central balcony, well above the power of the Church, in this case personified by the Madonna and Child, but also above the balcony from which the members of the  Greater Advice.  The external part therefore also had to have a representation that could be easily interpreted by the population.  On the corner near the Porta della Carta, also the entrance of the judges

Venice and high water

City of Venice  Venice and high water  High water is an ordinary and passing natural phenomenon, which has always been part of the life of Venetians.  Normally, tidal events have a very short duration.  For example, in the event that the tide reaches a maximum value of 120 centimeters, the event ends on average in less than an hour and a half.  Even when there is high water, it is possible to reach the main places of the city thanks to the pedestrian paths - partly on footbridges - practicable up to a tide of 120 centimeters.  The navigation public transport service, while modifying some sections when the tide exceeds 95 centimeters, is still guaranteed except for exceptional tide phenomena.  To be informed in real time on the tide level in Venice, follow the daily forecasts of the Tide Center of the City of Venice.  would like to receive your feedback.  Post a review and vote on our profile.

Venice The Opera Museum

The Opera Museum  The Opera, also called the factory or prosecutor's office, was formerly a kind of technical office in charge of the maintenance of the building and the management of the countless reforms and renovations it underwent throughout its long history.  The Opera kept documents and vestiges of its business.  One of the most important restoration plans of modern times was launched starting from 1875, and involved both the facades of the building and the ancient capitals of the ground porch and the loggia: 42 of these capitals, particularly ancient, precious or fragile, were then replaced  from copies.  The originals, deposited in the palace, were later subjected, during the last decade of the 1900s, to a careful restoration work, while the Opera Museum was designed and set up on the ground floor, intended to collect these and other  important architectural vestiges of the Palace.  The Capitals of the Opera Museum are a precious and important part of the extrao

Venice Clock Tower

Clock tower  The museum  The venue and the history  The Torre dei Mori is one of the most famous architectural signs of Venice: it overlooks the access to the city's nerve center, the ancient Merceria, like a triumphal arch.  It is also an element of rupture and connection between the various architectural parts of the complex of Piazza San Marco and between the different urban functions that branch off from it: the seats of political and religious power;  the places of representation and those of the economy;  the view towards the sea and the articulation of the entire city building network.  The tower is, in short, with its large astronomical clock, a masterpiece of technique and engineering, an indispensable element of the image of Venice itself and has been marking its life, history and the continuous passage of time for exactly five hundred years.  .

History of gondola rides in Venice Gondola rides in Venice.

 History of gondola rides in Venice  Gondola rides in Venice.   The origins of the gondola  The true origins of gondolas are shrouded in mystery.  Italy, Turkey, Greece and Malta claim that the gondola was invented within their borders.  Historians trace the first accounts of these boats to 1094, when Vitale Faliero, the Doge of Venice, mentioned a Gondolum in a letter to the people.  To avoid a revolt, he "donated" gondola-like boats to the people and said they would help facilitate their travel around the city.  The first visual representation of a gondola dates back to 1400 by the famous artists Carpaccio and Bellini in paintings preserved to this day.  Only from the fifteenth and sixteenth century gondolas were built and used for navigation in Venice.  In this period the gondolas had a different appearance from the present one.  Used mainly by the ruling class of the city, the gondolas had to flaunt the owner's wealth with luxury ornaments.  In the 16th ce

Doge's Palace in Venice

Ducal Palace  The venue and the history  A masterpiece of Gothic art, the Doge's Palace in Venice is structured in a grandiose stratification of constructive and ornamental elements: from the ancient foundations to the fourteenth-fifteenth-century structure of the whole, to the conspicuous Renaissance inserts, to the sumptuous mannerist signs.  It consists of three large buildings that have incorporated and unified previous constructions: the wing facing the San Marco Basin (which contains the Sala del Maggior Consiglio) and which is the oldest, rebuilt starting in 1340;  the wing facing the Piazza (formerly the Palazzo di Giustizia) with the Sala dello Scrutinio, whose construction in its present form begins in 1424;  on the opposite side, the Renaissance wing, with the Doge's residence and many government offices, rebuilt between 1483 and 1565. The public entrance to Palazzo Ducale is the Porta del Frumento (so called because it was located next to it  the "U


THE WINGED LION AND THE TODARO: THE COLUMNS OF PIAZZA SAN MARCO  The two columns of Piazza San Marco, positioned at the entrance to the Marciana area etowards the pier and the basin of San Marco, are two pillars in pink marble and granite, which mark, almost like the jambs of a door, the entrance to the  most beautiful square in the world.  The columns represent the two saints of Venice: San Marco Evangelista in the form of the winged lion to symbolize the Serenissima and San Todaro to protect the city.

Venice Tour in Gondola

There is no traveler who does not let himself be enchanted by the magic of Venetian gondolas, which with their unmistakable silhouettes creep through the canals of the city, cloaking every single glimpse of romance.  These boats represent an essential element of Venetian scenarios but there are things that perhaps not everyone knows about the symbol par excellence of the Serenissima, such as the complexity of their construction, the ancient techniques of construction, the uniqueness of each specimen and the symbolism that contain some  of its components.  Here, then, is what there is to know about what many consider to be the most romantic and fascinating boats on the planet.  THE TRADITION Their irresistible charm and the romanticism evoked by their sinuous shapes that roam the canals of the Serenissima have traveled the world and are one of the major attractions of the magnificent Venetian capital.  But besides being incredibly beautiful and romantic, Venetian gondolas ha

Venice Ponte dei Sospiri

Who, while visiting Venice, has never taken a photo with the Bridge of Sighs in the background?  Or did he pass under it in a gondola, during a romantic journey through the canals in the company of his loved one?  It is one of the symbols of the lagoon city, it is considered the bridge of love, but it hides secrets and curiosities that perhaps not everyone knows.  The Bridge of Sighs can be admired in all its beauty from the nearby Ponte della Paglia, in Riva degli Schiavoni, not far from Piazza San Marco.  What for many is Venice's Bridge of Lovers, was originally an access ramp from the magistrates' halls to the Palazzo delle Prison, where the recently convicted and convicted inmates were transported.  What is the history of the bridge, and what are the legends about it still being told today?

Visiting Venice upside down through its reflections.

No, we don't want to walk you on your hands, but just make you see Venice from a different point of view.  Who has never admired the magnificent Venetian palaces on the water of the lagoon?  Well, now imagined to visit the entire city watching only the reflections, a flickering and colorful upside-down dimension.  In short, it is a bit like walking upside down.
