    Venice is delightful at all times. Yes, Carnival is a lot of fun, especially if you bring your own costume, and if you reserve your lodgings ahead of time.
    You can be as elegant and extravagant, or as simple and funny as you wish ! But make sure you have warm underwear as it can be cold some days.
    Venice is however much more than the touristic postcard sold worldwide.
    It is an amazing symbol of resilience.
    A place born in the middle of marshes where people escaped from the barbarians.
    A place made of 100 and plus tiny islands that thrived and became a  powerful city-state.
    An exquisitally beautiful place that literally floats between water and sky. 
    A trompe l'oeil place par excellence, where huge, somptuous, heavy churches and palaces are actually much lighter than one could think, as they are built in bricks and covered with marble.
    An amazing architectural town, with ingenious handling of natural challenges 
    A place of human scale, totally devoid of cars, mopeds or bikes, which translates into serenity and absolutely no noise pollution!  
    The Serenissima is indeed serene : you can hear birds singing, kids laughing, breeze whispering in the trees! 
    Yes, a few areas are very touristic and crowded, but there are many others that are quietly unknown and delightful!

    This year 2021 the 'regata storica' in Venice was on September 5 (first Sunday in September). Despite covid restrictions it was again quite a spectacle with contributions from different communities in the city. The historical parade through the Grand Canal of course is the major event with the Doge and the Duchess in traditional costumes in a colorful beautifully decorated boat flanked by many others. Then there were the more competitive gondola races. It looks so easy to row while standing, though I know from experience how hard it really is.

    It was hard to find a good spot to view the ongoings. Be there early. The program starts at 4PM, but at noon the best spots were already taken.

    For me the highlight was Fellini's Rhinocerontess (an image of a great golden rino on one of the boats).

    We spent 4 days in Venice specifically to attend the Biennale.

    If you don't cotton to and can't fathom contemporary art, don't go.

    But if you do, it's a treasure.

    It took us 3 full days to go through the Arsenale and the area where there are about 30 seperate building belonging to each participant country.
