Venice Accademia , when Grand Canal is a sleep, Italy


Looking towards southern end of Grand Canal and Chiesa della Salute - Church of Santa Maria della Salute.
In October of 1630, after nearly a third of Venice's 150,000 citizens had been killed by plague, the Venetian Senate made an offer to God: "Stop the plague, and we'll build a church to honor the Virgin Mary."
I was looking for something for the competition and the subject is “ Night “ and I wondered off to Venice. It seams that every time I open files from Venice I find something that I missed before.
What I miss the most it the Venice itself. I would love to go back
