A few scenes in my second novel (still in the works) are set in Venice. I had the tremendous good fortune to visit La Serenissima several years ago. It's one of those places I always wanted to see, and with rising sea levels slowly subsuming it, I did not want to put it off for "someday".
My hero will spend time in at least some of the places in these photos. How could I not be inspired?
|The Natural History museum is housed in the former Turkish |
(merchants') foundation. You can see the river frontage where
they once received cargo, now submerged for much of the year.
|The medieval church of San Giacomo|
dell'Orio in Santa Croce, not far from
the Natural History museum.
|The Turks' lovely courtyard.|
|Wandering Venice after dark adds an air of intrigue.|
