Of all the cities in the world Venice is one of the most unique. From romantic gondola rides to hard working glass-makers, this city has it all. A stroll through the streets, and over the hundreds of bridges, makes you feel as if you are in an incredibly special place and time.

    Another place with great pidgeon stories is Trafalgar Square in London. We spent a few minutes running through the pidgeon crowds there, trying to capture it all on film. Looks like Venice treated you well! :)

    Enjoyed reading your impressions of Venice. Going Oct 15 and gathering information. Feeding the Pigeons commentary was a riot!
