    Strolling: Gospel

    There was not much to see at night this winter in Venice. We walked a while, searching for live music somewhere, but we only saw a few tiny bars spilling wine into many noisy but not musical tourists.

    Suddenly, someone came out the church of St Geremia. Strange, at that hour of the night!
    We entered, and found a choir in a gospel performance. Unexpected, ad a good detail to end the night!

    Strolling: Venice by Night

    I didn't see are any nightspots e.g discotheques or nightclubs on Venice Island but after a long day exploring Venice, you can slow the pace by having a late dinner at a local Trattoria or restaurant.

    Otherwise, you can also take a walk in the evening when there's less crowd. Areas around Piazza San Marco and Ponte di Rialto are quite romantic ;-)

    Strolling: Just look around

    Its kind of funny that the choices for nightlife spots that virtualtourist gives you are just a few...and they include harry's bar. Venice gets extremely quiet at night. From what I could tell, the entire city basically shuts down around 7pm. It gets really quiet, and that makes it quite nice. All I did was stroll around on the water and get late night (10 pm at the latest) gelatos with my girl. On crowded days Venice became wonderful again after 6 or 7pm. The crowds disappear and you can wander aimlessly again without constantly running into people.

    Venice is not the place to visit for wild nightlife.

    Strolling: Safety

    I have never felt unsafe wandering around Venice. There is a visible police presence and I don't think anyone messes with them. Consequently it's refreshing to be able to walk around in safety, day or night.

    Buy a gelato and take a stroll

    Venice comes alive at night, especially during the summer, buzzing with activity. You'll see buskers, dancers and singers thronging the many piazzas. So get yourself a refreshing gelato from one of the many gelateria and take a stroll among the locals!

    Is not a thing to do is a thing you must to do, a stroll on Venice at night, for romantic trip, for family trip and just for a walk. In the same time you enjoy with the walk you do with the live music from the cafes in St Marks Square and getting lost from the canals. Is a good choice if you don´t know what to do.

    Es una cosa que debes de hacer, un paseo por Venecia de noche ya sea para los romantico, para las familias o simplemente por caminar. A la vez que disfrutas del paseo también difrutas de la música que viene de los cafés de la plaza de san marcos, otra cosas para hacer es perderte por los canales de noche, una experiencia única.

    Strolling: Magical Night on the Canals

    by grandmaR Updated Oct 7, 2013

    I took these photos coming back from dinner. When I looked at them on the computer, I immediately thought of the paintings of Turner and some of the other Impressionists like Van Gogh. The scenery was so picturesque that it was unreal.

    I came back during the day and took photos where we had been.

    Santa Maria Dela Salute

    This is the Santa Maria Dela Saluta by night, one of Venice's most historic churches. Just like the previous photo this church is just as beautiful to see at night as during the day.
