Here are a few more photos from our fabulous week in Venice. We had such a great, relaxing time.
Huge, gorgeous painting by Titan of the assumption of Mary in the Frari Church. There was another one there by him too.
These were for sale in an interesting shop. They were used to show perspective buyers a dress in a miniature size. They were called “French Puppets”.
A dog dressed up for Carnival.
A very loud party was going on behind our apartment in a lighted courtyard. If you look closely you will see a guy on stilts outside the door. He was checking invitations-so I wasn’t able to sneak in and get a look.
The gorgeous ceiling of the Academia Museum.
A statue being renovated in a museum. I’m glad they let us watch.
An old painting showing Carnival in times past. You can see a really elaborate boat for royalty and people dressed in costume. I love seeing things like this showing life as it once was.
Just an iconic look at another canal and bridge in a part of Venice not visited much.
