Venice Rialto ( please view large )
In the heart of Venice , just beside Rialto Bridge. One of the busiest spots in very busy city. My hotel was just couple minutes walk from there. When I was talking to my very good friend that was a tour guide in Italy, I asked him what city should I pick. I didn't was to travel around but just one city for a week. I was thinking Rome , Sienna or Venice. For him Venice was clear choice for photo trip. He also said - “ stay in the city “ , you can find much cheaper … sorry not as expensive accommodation just outside of main city but the transportation will be more difficult. For 90 Euro a night I found single room with bathroom that all was not much bigger than my car. It was clean and surprisingly quiet – perfect. Location was fantastic , I was able to shoot early and late and still easily get to the hotel, upload memory cards and recharge myself.
BTW , my brother asked me if I will be renting a car in Venice …. I told him that he was from the shallow end of the gene pool
