"Beautiful Backwaters" Back Street Canals Tip by steventilly

Back Street Canals, Venice: 101 reviews and 141 photos

  Rio San Barnaba, Dorsoduro
by steventilly

Beautiful Backwaters.
Venice is a labrynth of twisting streets and intersecting canals. Wander far and wide and don't stay around the main 'tourist' areas of St Marks & Rialto. You can find beautiful canals, squares and churches almost everywhere, and it is the quietness of some of those places that really enhances their beauty. This is the Rio San Barnaba in Dorsoduro.
