Venice Off The Beaten Path: 717 reviews and 1,246 photos


<DIV ID='layer1' style='position:static;background-color:#003366'><FONT COLOR='#FFFFFF'>The flow of rivers and canals mingles with the wash of the sea, with the slow movement of the Adriatic tides, checked by peninsulas and sandbanks. The barene, those stretches that are now submerged, now emerging, sometimes appear to twinkle on the horizon below their fringes of weeds. The mysterious play of the currents, in a slow process of undermining, eroding, and filling, shifts the deepest basins and brimming lands, providential pastures for crab, shrimp, shellfish, octupus, squid, gulls, snipe, herons, wild ducks, shoveler ducks--all the incorrigible hunters and fishers. And I thought this was an inanimate realm.<BR>http://www.photo.net/italy/venice-lagoon.html
