Venice is a photographer’s paradise. With its maze of canals, its colorful, crumbling facades, and gondolas silently drifting through the city, it’s hard to leave Venice without a memory card full of beautiful images. In this article, we display our 20 favorite photos of Venice, Italy.
Our Visits to Italy
Our main purpose for visiting Italy the second time around (in 2017) was to race Ironman Italy. It was my turn to do an Ironman triathlon and I picked Italy. There’s no better place in the world to carb-load prior to a big race, right?
Our third visit to Italy was in the summer of 2022. We flew into Venice on our way to the Dolomites and couldn’t resist spending another day in this beautiful city.
The photos in this article are from all three of our visits to Italy.
