To locate this doorway, just go to the Lista Vecchia dei Bari, in Santa Croce. There’s a lot to admire.

I love this different looking Venezia.
Thank you. When I began writing about Venice, I tried hard to find different aspects of this city. Not necessarily the most beautiful, but the interesting.
You certainly found some interesting places in Venice Yvonne. 🙂
That city is just bulging with mysteries to find, Laurie. It just needs a few nice long visits.
I just watched a good movie on SBS on Demand: No Return. Have you seen it?
I’m sure you’ll find other reasons to keep going back Yvonne. 🙂
I took a look on Google about the movie, it looks interesting. I guess you can’t keep a good man down, or in the ground.
I think that’s a different No Return, Laurie. The one on SBS is a foreign movie, no ghosts involved.
I just checked Netflix and also come up with a supernatural flick. Do you know the foreign title, Yvonne.
I can recommend an Italian film…the English title is “Facing Windows”. A little slow start but excellent.
Here’s a link to one review. The movie was from Argentina, where it is known as Sin Retorno.
Interesting that even with the name Sin Retorno it brings up a totally different movie. The one you saw doesn’t seem to be available on Netflix here. I even checked under films from Argentina and no luck. Maybe it just isn’t available here at this time.
We are retired but not too tired to dream of living somewhere a bit more lively (and less conservative) than here in staid Bowral. Your mouth watering photos only nutrture this dream. Could we dare to fulfil and at least visit the place without having to spen $ 10.- for a coffee or $200.- for a gondelier’s paddle around 50 meters of canal?

Yes, it is completely possible to find coffee for far less, and it’s not necessary to have a gondola ride! I visit with a very modest budget, and have the most wonderful adventures. (Bowral sounds a bit like “Dismal Swamp” where I live!)
I agree with Yvonne. No need to have your coffee in Piazza San Marco or any of those other places. If you rent an apartment you can even buy coffee in the grocery store and learn to use a moka (if you don’t already know how) and make your morning coffee “at home”.
And although lovely, gondolas are not regular means of transportation.
Go for it!
I wish I had your knowledge of streets and Venice in general your photos always make my day
When you retire and have plenty of free time, you’ll be doing the same, Joanne. 🙂
retire what fantasy world is that?
Yes, that is a lot to admire. Thanks Y!
It’s a ripper, Susie.
Those little pieces of history are really amazing!
Good morning, Roberto. Just imagine the artisans who created this type of work, so many centuries ago.
Yes I like thinking about that. Very nice spotm
Oooh. Yes please. (Adds to list of things to do) 😀
Andrew, I had you in mind as I posted this. You’d better extend your visit to Venice. 🙂
it”s finest porta! ))
Ciao, cara! It’s a work of art, isn’t it?
Yes, of course! ))
