Venice: An Atmospheric Maze

Venice: An Atmospheric Maze

is an atmospheric maze.
You’re guaranteed to lose yourself (intentionally or otherwise)
down labyrinthine side streets away from the city’s main drag. En
route to a whispered-about restaurant owned by a nonna and nonno,
we pass the Piazza San Marco – of silver-screen fame – which
appears more and more charming each time we see it.

Rising early the next day, we take a stroll along the water’s
edge, clouds of morning mist shielding us from snap-happy
sightseers. Gondoliers ready themselves for the day, donning
furlane slippers and fixing their straw hats decorated with
red-and-white grosgrain ribbon.

As we float past Byzantine and Renaissance architecture, and
sail by umpteen palazzi and twice as many piazze, the storied
city’s allure is palpable.
