Technically the best time to visit Venice is off-season, factually the best time to visit Venice is any time you can get there. These shots were taken with a disposable camera—pretty adequate, right? (It's virtually impossible to take a bad photo in Italy). Above, from a vaporetto on the Grand Canal, just beyond the Rialto Bridge. Below, the Piazza San Marco. Venice in late January is cold and beautiful and quiet, with the excitement of Carnival just around the corner.
