There were 2 traghetti operating at the Ca’ D’Oro crossing, they were doing a roaring trade, with long queues (yes, orderly lines) at each side.
In Cannaregio, I used a road less travelled, and that turned out to be a lucky choice. On Fondamenta Sant’Andrea, I stumbled across Palazzo Albrizzi, which had free admission to 2 art exhibitions, in a very pretty Palazzo. There are also musical performances held here. It might be worth checking out, if you’re in this part of town.
Outside the Palazzo, a slight contrast. The canal has been closed for renovation work on the walls, so it looked less than picturesque. (And, I have to admit, even as a devoted Venetophile, the sludge at the bottom of the canal was emitting an interesting aroma!)
And, for the graffiti followers in the crowd, here’s another that made use of the natural worn features of the wall.
Puzzle for today. Why were these flippers discarded? Whose were they? Where were they used?
