This little marble angel posing so well off-leash in front of of the 11th century St Mark’s basilica in Venice, ignoring the crowds and being praised by amazed tourist, was actually plotting a massacre of all the pigeons in the piazza. Seriously, how could there be thousands of trustful birds in one spot? is that heaven? Just beware, feathery creatures, I can hunt as well as I can pose.  Editor’s note: retrospectively, teaching a terrier to chase a bird as a reward wasn’t such a great idea.  #innocentdog #poser #stmarkssquare #sanmarco #turistaavenezia #visitvenice #canidivenezia #dogsofvenice #birdchaser #stmarkbasilica #dogtraveler #travellingwithdogs #dogtourist #pigeons #architecturephotography #jrtlovers #parsonrussellterrier #parsonjackrussell #travelphotography #dogphotography #caniitaliani #insiemeovunque #parsonrussellitalia #dogsofinsta #dogsofaustralia #terriersofinstagram #veniceitaly #pupfluencer #dailyfluff #dogsofitaly

The one thing that makes Venice unique from the rest of the world ~ Gondola rides 🛶⁣
⁣
I’m sure many of you have seen an image of a singing gondolier in Hollywood movies, but one thing you should know is that gondoliers are not required to sing. ⁣
⁣
Other tips:⁣
⁣
• Costs about 100 euros⁣
• Maximum of 6 people⁣
• Rides last about 40 minutes ⁣
• Wear sunscreen and hat⁣
• Avoid the crowded Grand Canal⁣

Carnival, Mardi Gras, Fasching! No matter what you call it, It’s that time again! One of the largest global parties leading up to the season of lent. 
I always dreamed of photographing the most regal, and thematic participants of Carnival in Venice, Italy. No amount of information could have prepared me for the awe inspiring experience it would turn out to be!  The finest details of costume and makeup attended to. The care displayed in posing and constantly being in character. The imagination and whimsy around every corner. I was like a kid in a candy store! 
Sadly due to the Coronavirus outbreak in northern Italy, this year’s festivities were cut 2 days short.

my hope is to return for carnival again, one day. for now, our ❤️s go out to italy, and i will reminisce through photos.

Final morning in Venice

Time spent in St Marks Square costume watching whilst waiting to watch the annual Eagle “Flight”. This year it was downhill skiing champion Kristian Ghedina.

Then a farewell to the beautiful city, with one final spectacle, the Ponte della Liberta. 3850 meters (2.39 mile) bridge connecting the island to the mainland. Very impressive!

This little marble angel posing so well off-leash in front of of the 11th century St Mark’s basilica in Venice, ignoring the crowds and being praised by amazed tourist, was actually plotting a massacre of all the pigeons in the piazza. Seriously, how could there be thousands of trustful birds in one spot? is that heaven? Just beware, feathery creatures, I can hunt as well as I can pose.  Editor’s note: retrospectively, teaching a terrier to chase a bird as a reward wasn’t such a great idea.  #innocentdog #poser #stmarkssquare #sanmarco #turistaavenezia #visitvenice #canidivenezia #dogsofvenice #birdchaser #stmarkbasilica #dogtraveler #travellingwithdogs #dogtourist #pigeons #architecturephotography #jrtlovers #parsonrussellterrier #parsonjackrussell #travelphotography #dogphotography #caniitaliani #insiemeovunque #parsonrussellitalia #dogsofinsta #dogsofaustralia #terriersofinstagram #veniceitaly #pupfluencer #dailyfluff #dogsofitaly

Tremendo carnaval en la Plaza de San Marcos de Venecia. Una tremenda bendición de estar ahí y poder llevar a través de mis fotos un poco de lo que esto fue desde tan lejos. Participan disfraces provenientes de distintas partes de Europa, un festival inolvidable. #carnaval2020 #venice #venicecarnival #disfracesoriginales #disfraz #disfrazcarnaval #canonrebelt6 #europe #venice #venecia #venecia🇮🇹 #veneciaitalia #italia #italy #plazasanmarcos #stmarkssquare

Venice! All I can say is wow, wow, wow, wow!
Everywhere you turn it’s just beautiful!
Very busy day!

Started Saturday with a wander through St Marks Square to breakfast at Cafe Florian. Open since 1720 it’s the oldest continuously operating coffee house in the world and is absolutely stunning.

Next up was a 3 hour walking tour with an absolutely brilliant guide!
Took in St Marks Basilica which has been around in one iteration or another since the 11the century and is astounding inside.
From there it was through to Doge’s Palace, founded in 1340. Words cannot describe how amazing this place is! Home to the largest room in Europe with no columns and the largest canvas in the world. It’s just ... incredible!

Short walk to the Piraeus Lion, 3m (9ft) high solid marble statue. Originally sculpted in 360BC and standing at the Piraeus harbour entrance to Athens, looted in 1687.

On to a short bus ride. But public transport here is not what I’m used to, the “bus” is actually a boat! Across the lagoon and up the grand canal to our next event, the quintessential Venice experience ...
It takes 7 different types of wood and 280 hand carved pieces to make a gondolas. There are only 433 gondolieri and they require extensive testing! Licenses are passed down the family, our gondolieri was 4th generation

On to another Venice staple, especially during carnivale season ... masks!
Now yes, you can get masks everywhere in Venice. However there are fewer than 10 shops that still make their own masks in a traditional fashion, most of the masks are mass produced tat. So off to Venice Masks by Alberto Scarria, handmade since 1986! In my opinion the best mask shop in Venice . Ironically I then got a non-traditional one-off collaboration mask with resin instead of paint meanwhile Anna got a mask made specifically for her that day!
