Simona, It looks like you are having a grand time. I love your photos, keep 'em coming!


Thanks for this picture, Simona, hope you had a great time there! :-)

I've always dreamed about living in Venice. Yes, parts of it are overrun with tourists, but once you're off the beaten track it's surprisingly empty. You can be all alone with the lagoon, gorgeous decaying buildings and your thoughts. There are few places on earth so hauntingly beautiful.

Beautiful captures, timeless image, Simona!

When in Venice, I love to pick up vegetables and fruit from the friendly vendor at La Barca.
And a small glass of wine and cicchetti at the bar right off the ponte.

Simona Carini

We did have a grand time, Sally, and you'll certainly see more photos of our visit.

You are welcome, Cinzia. We had a wonderful visit, thanks also to the gorgeous weather.

Me too, Frank, and I hold on to that dream, which actually got stronger during this visit. We stayed in Dorsoduro, just around the corner from the Barca, and enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere of the less touristy area. You'd love the Rialto fish market.

Osteria ai pugni, Merisi. We were there as well. I am already missing Venice deeply. Hope you'll go soon.


per un attimo ho sperato che tu fossi in Italia, potevi passare da me a Firenze, sarebbe stato emozionante abbracciarci Simona!
ti abbraccio virtualmente, per ora!

Simona Carini

Carissima Sandra, sono certa che il nostro abbraccio prima o poi avverra' sotto il cielo infinito della campagna toscana.

Molly Hashimoto

Simona, is the Barca anywhere near Campo San Barnaba? We walked past a beautiful little floating produce shop several times?

Simona Carini

Yes, Molly, it's right around the corner, at one end of the Ponte dei Pugni. I know your students worked in the Campo. Had we been in Venice a couple of weeks earlier, we would have met there. We rented a small apartment off Calle Lunga San Barnaba: it was a great choice. I like the relative quiet of Dorsoduro.

Molly Hashimoto

Aha, Simona! How nice to think of us both photographing the Barca, just days apart! 


Simona Carini

We'll see if next time we manage to be there at the same time. Wouldn't it be fun?


Lovely in BW. :-)

Simona Carini

Thank you, Paz. I love that corner of Venice any time, any way.
