If you’re like me, you don’t need much of an excuse to immerse yourself in pictures of Venice. Here’s a simple but very effective idea. Why not collect together paintings to re-create a sense of what the city looked like at one particular period? ‘How Venice Looked to Victorian Travelers c1890’ does precisely that – here. (And why not listen to piano solo ‘A Day in Venice’ by Fivos Valachis while you’re scrolling?)
