September last year - on a gloomy, then somewhat sunny weather - my 2nd time wandering the streets in mesmerizing Venice
The pouring rain made all the tourists take refuge in Venetian mask stores or intimate restaurants | I had the narrow streets to myself
Then a few rays of sun decided to brighten up the canals
In the afternoon, I decided to take a boat to visit Piazza San Marco and its Palazzo Ducale, but little did I know, the most beautiful view was not from the square
Thankfully, I came back just in time for dinner :)
