More from Venice.
From the phone. If you visit you can stay in Padua. It is just 20 minutes outside of Venice, the train ride in is cheap and rooms are less expensive. Plus it is a university town so it has a lively night life.

The weekend before Carnival they have a boat parade with funny costumes.

The masks, I think these are the ones made from leather,

Non traditional Venetian glass

Venice from 2019. All unretouched from my phone.
We skipped most of the main sites that one must see.
Got away from most of the crowds.
Were there the week before Carnival.

Today we have some graffiti from Venice.
I have noticed that is some areas in Europe there is a move to
spray painted stencils and some where they use a printed paper
which is applied to the wall like wall paper. None of those paper examples are here .
