Christmas in Venezia - Gondolas in the front, Palazzi in the back

On the night of December 5th, 2006, Nereo Zane took this shot from the Riva del Vin – a spot along the Grand Canal that’s just a stone’s throw from the Rialto Bridge. The buildings in the photo are the Palazzo Farsetti and the Palazzo Loredan. Both palazzo were built around the year 1200 and now contain the offices of the Mayor of Venice among other things.
