Late Night Row on the Grand Canal

One of the few periods when motor boat (especially water taxi) traffic is not overwhelming


  1. Lovely, and with one click, Venice has soothed my (dis)stressed heart.

    Thanks Steve, always yh s appreciated, seldom acknowledge D.

    1. Thank you, Rob. There is something soothing about the sight of rowers. With all the motor traffic on the Grand Canal it's hard to imagine a time when all of it would have been done with oars, as described so well by William Dean Howells. So I appreciate even the hint of such a time.
