Thirty Hours in Venice |©thepalladiantraveler.comOnly a 45-min. train ride from my creative hideaway, Venice is a regular destination of mine whenever the mood strikes. And, it strikes often.

Recently, I was invited to La Serenissima by Walks of Italy to experience its Legendary Venice guided tour of the Doge’s Palace and St. Mark’s Basilica. Without blinking an eye, I said yes — why wouldn’t I? — packed an overnight bag, grabbed a hotel room along a quiet calle and ended up spending 30 hours in the City of Canals with my knife, fork, spoon and camera.

My Walks of Italy dispatch will be out soon. In the meantime, here’s a taste of my recent 30 hours in Venice.

Ciao for now.

Tom traded his hometown St. Louis Cardinals' baseball cap in the United States for a Borsalino and he now hangs his "capello" in the Puglia region of southeastern Italy. A veteran print and broadcast journalist, with well-worn passports that have got him into and out of 50 countries and counting, Tom fell in love with the "Bel Paese" years ago. As he notes, "I'm inspired by the beauty I find in all things that are very, very old, and reliving history, or at least meandering along cobblestone streets that were laid down over a thousand years ago and just looking up and marveling at what occupies the space still today, really gets my 'Vespa' running." Tom has a good eye behind the lens and is a graphic storyteller, but he'll let you decide as he keeps his camera batteries fully charged and the posts flowing from his creative hideaway in the hills overlooking Ostuni. You can also follow his dispatches along the cobblestone via TravelingBoy.com.
