Welcome to the next installment in my Where I’ve Been Wednesday series. To all of you new readers, you can find out more about WIBW here. Today, we’re going back to Venice, Italy. Getting lost in the alleys I found a lot of interesting things about the city. There are so many details to notice and this is just one of them. Faces can be found EVERWHERE! There are lots of pictures in this one Enjoy!
When walking through the alleys you will want to keep an eye on the walls. There are many sculptures set right into them.
This winged lion with the book is the symbol of Venice and can be found EVERYWHERE.
Another face to look for can be found on the balconies.
and the doorways . . .
I really liked the color of that green door. Do you see what I see? No, besides how monstrous this next doorway is . . .
See it now?
There are stray cats everywhere too! Caught this one napping
San Marco’s Piazza is covered with interesting faces, whether it’s a fresco . . .
a zodiac clock . . .
or a sculpture
there’s that winged lion again
These three saints were found on the corner of this church.
The masks of Carnevale are a huge part of the Venetian culture.
as are the costumes
Trust me, Carnevale will get a post all to itself. Hope you enjoyed seeing some of the faces of Venezia Come back next week to see where we go next. If you’re just now catching WIBW, you can see where else we’ve been here:
