Walking Through Time Venice Italy (Part 1) – Travel Photography Blog by Jeffrey Worthington

Venice, the floating city has long ben on my bucket list.  Visiting it for the first time last year I wasn’t sure what to expect, so many historical places today have been turned into overcrowded tourist traps. Would Venice be the same?  Thankfully not!  Venice lived up to my expectations and then some!

Unlike other major cities, Venice’s skyline has remained almost the same since the days of Marco Polo.  It was refreshing to visit a European city and see it how it was hundreds of years ago before the age of skyscrapers and apartment high-rises. As a travel photographer and lover of history, I truly appreciated this!

It’s trading with Asian, European, and North African exchange networks that made it a vibrant Mediterranean cultural and diverse architecture center.  The entire city is full of colors and little ally-ways!  Perfect for someone like myself who loves exploring.

Venice is rich with Christian history and once  was a safe haven for Jews fleeing the Spanish Inquisition (more on that later).

As the sun starts to wane, Venice takes on an entirely different feel!  Be sure that you’re in a location where you can get a proper view of the sunset because it can be magical!
