Venice1 black and white photography
Venice must count as one of the world's most beautiful cities. Made up of 118 small islands in the marshy Venetian Lagoon along the Adriatic Sea in northeast Italy, the city is full of tight canal waterways and hidden secrets. This black and white gallery contains photographs of The Doge's Palace (A gothic palace on St Mark's square also known as Palazzo Ducale di Venezia.), The Campanile, The Bridge of Sighs and other shots from around the city. The Campanile tower stands in the corner of St Mark's Square and is 98.6 metres. The tower houses five bells and affords magnificent views of Venice.
