Venice Side Alley - Venice, Italy

I can't believe that it has been almost seven years since I have walked the "streets" of Venice. Of all of the European cities that I have visited, I keep coming back to Venice as the most unique and mysterious. Maybe it is my Italian heritage that comes into play. Even with the passage of time, I still remember wandering aimlessly through the city, looking down small side alleys in search of scenes like this one. The funny thing is, they aren't that hard to find. It seems every alley has its own story to tell. I don't get that same feeling anywhere else and I hope to experience it once more down the road.
