    Festival Time

    Venice comes alive during the city's major festivals. The spectacular international Biennale art show runs this year from June through November. Early September ushers in the Venice Film Festival, with regular showings of independent films and blockbusters alike. Grab a schedule and check out films in original language in the halls of the Palazzo del Cinema on the island of Lido, and in campi all over the city.

    As I mentioned earlier, try to make it during the festival. You will get an even greater appreciation, (and, indeed, passion) for the people that make up Venice, as well as meet some interesting people from all over the world. In this picture, I was just about to leave at the train station when an entire group of people dressed in crazy outfits like Robin Hood came out singing and handing out hard-boiled eggs. They were tasty! Too small to be chicken, but I didn't know enough Italian to ask! :-)

    Deconstructing the Pontoon Bridge

    For the feast of the Redentore a pontoon bridge is built spanning the Giudecca Canal, from Santa Maria della Salute to the Redentore Church. Here you see the bridge being taken apart.
