Looking across the Bacino di San Marco (Saint Mark’s Basin) in Venice, Italy.

Colourful Gondolas full of tourists, Vaporettos full of commuters, cruise ships and pleasure boats of all kinds can be seen navigating the wide Giudecca Canal.

In the background is the Church of San Giorgio Maggiore, designed by Andrea Palladio and located on the island of San Giorgio Maggiore. The church plays a central role in the panorama from the Piazzetta.

The whole of Venice and its Lagoon is designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

    Beautiful shot mate. Just been looking through my Italy stuff today and I have one taken from this exact spot but with an idiot tourist’s head in the way. I have no idea why I didn’t try another but I didn’t. Tourists should be banned when people are trying to take photographs.

  • Hehe, I know exactly what you mean, cheers mate …
