Finally, So Very Quickly Checking Out Venezia at Night

Since I’m in Trieste, and Venezia is only less than 2 hours away, how can I not check out Venezia.

So driving like hell over E70 highway, from Trieste to Venezia.

Then I needed to pay substantially more comparing to that of Croatia’s to this intelligent toll collecting machine which takes bills, coins and credit cards, greeted by polite Italian lady voice. Won’t take very large bills or very small changes.

Ponte della Costituzione, it’s Venezia again~

Then the grand Basilica Cattedrale Patriarcale di San Marco, impressive as always.

Those cute and ugly at the same time lions by the side were still fine and dandy.

Chiesa d’Oro.
Those intriguing 4 Horses of Saint Mark-Lysippos on the balcony were taken from the Hippodrome of Constantinople after the Fourth Crusade, Istanbul of today that I’ve visited  a couple of days ago.

And there was an Italian lady singing opera in front of it, Brava!

Piazza San Marco looks rather empty being the off-season.

Interesting displays at Moncler shop caught my eye,  inspired by iRobot and Ghost in the Shell, maybe.

Now it’s time to get back.

Supposedly, parking in Venice is very costly. But it was well worth it this time.

UP needed to be filled after a full day.
