      I truly enjoyed the photo tour. I recently saw The Tourist featuring Depp and Jolie which was filmed in Venice. Like our post, it made me want to visit this romantic city. Thanks for the warmth today.

      One of my many passions is to ride on a gondalas down the canal in Venice. The idea of sitting with your feet in the water while eating is inviting. The pics. are very beautiful. A well written hub with great detail Thandi. Well done.
