After a relatively short stay at Lake Como and in Milan, a time has come to enjoy the sun and beautiful weather in one of my favorite cities - Venice.
During my first visit to Venice, a few weeks ago, I became convinced that this was the most beautiful city I've ever seen. The second stay in that city only confirmed my belief. Obviously Serenissima delights with a dense network of canals and intersecting them, picturesque bridges. However, what struck me the most, for the first and for the second time, it's the unbelievable richness of architecture. Every building, every little detail seems even more beautiful than the last. A bit pity though that I still didn’t have a chance to see and photograph the famous Rialto Bridge, which will remain in the renovation for at least another year...
After two days in Venice, next stop – Portopiccolo. This very pleasant, located by the seaside place, appeared to be the ideal starting point to explore Trieste.
Trieste surprised me with tidiness of the streets and general cleanliness of the city. The brightness of the buildings, looking as if they were all freshly renovated, and strong sunlight, resulted in a very contrasted photographs of people’s silhouettes, clearly cutting-off from dazzling, almost white background.
The week ended with a stay in Bolzano – a charming town, located in the Dolomites. Having been to Bolzano several times before, but only in winter, I was pretty excited to see it during summer time. Summer Bolzano is green and very hot. Colored buildings and just as colorful markets, unlikely to be seen during the winter, add lots of charm to the city, which is largely dominated by German-speaking tourists and… cyclists !
In the meanwhile, I'm already in another city that I was longing to see for a very, very long time... Can’t wait to share it with you next week :)
