I have never been in my life so struck by any place as by Venice. It is the wonder of the world. Dreamy, beautiful, inconsistent, impossible, wicked, shadowy, d-able old place! I entered by night and the bright morning that followed is part of me for the rest of my existence.

(Charles Dickens)

Though there are some disagreable things in Venice there is nothing so disagreable as the visitors.

(Henry James)


  1. These are wonderful. And I quite agree with Dickens. You so capture Venice.
