“She looks a sea Cybele, fresh from ocean,
Rising with her tiara of proud towers
At airy distance, with majestic motion,
A ruler of the waters and their powers.”
– Lord Byron

“THE worst thing you can do, if lost in Venice, is to mind.
Venice is a city made for getting lost. Its streets are narrow, twisting
and dark, and half of them are made of water. …
Being lost, teaches you to concentrate on whatever is in front of your
face. This may include the four white bedsheets moving, like a mother and
her daughters, on a laundry line above the canal.
Getting lost in Venice usually means running into a number of dead-end
streets. But no dead-end street is ever really dead. …”
New York Times
What Rick says here is wonderful and he shows how wonderful Venice can be.
Absolutely, no matter what map you have in your guidebook or you printed
off from Google Maps (showing you how to find your hotel, for example),
those are all inadequate…instead, as soon as you find a kiosk in the
street, by a good map of Venice for about 3 Euros. This one step will make
the difference between loving Venice and wanted it to sink into the lagoon.
did he say gracias to the two elderly lady..lol
