the Arsanale (2011 trip)

Been a while, but I am back. I am now just about a year behind with with my Italy trip report, but I am still determined to finish it up. It just may take a few years!!

I last left off talking about my visit to the little narrow house.

Continuing on with my Italy 2011 trip report…

Saturday, June 11th (cont.):
Saturday turned out to be one of those days with lots of drastic weather changes. It started out as a nice day, then a huge storm blew in while I was at the top of the Campanile (bell tower). I went back to my B&B to change and left my nice DSLR camera there since it looked like rain would continue throughout the day. I went to a couple of exhibits and after leaving the Glasstress exhibit the sun was back out again. At this point, I could not tell if the sun was out to stay. I did not want to waste time going back to my B&B to change again so instead, I caught the next vaporetto to go explore more of Venice.

I headed towards the Arsanale to check out the what I thought was one of the Bianale exhibits – an opportunity to see the shipyards and some of the old ships. When I got there, I found out that this was not possible (or I was misinformed and never found the shipyard) but since it was the first time I have been to the Arsanale area of Venice, I found it very interesting and it quite beautiful. I only wish I had my DSLR camera with me. Here are a some photos I took with my little pocket camera.

I still am not done with the day. More to come…

Next up – more of Saturday in Venezia

  1. Don’t feel bad – I haven’t finished my blogging from Venice from May of 2011. I have vowed to finish, though, if I can remember what the pictures represent.
    Loved your photos – thanks for sharing them.


  2. Hi Girasoli, your photos are really beautiful. I have not had the chance to visit the Arsanale yet, but I want to hopefully so I can see some of the images you’ve captured.
    Hope your Red Sox are doing well this season. Go Sox! Have a wonderful week.
