Venice curiosities - part two

Well, it's high time to take care of Venice curiosities for the second time;-)

What was omnipresent in Venice was renovation. The cranes standing here and there but most of all the canvas! No, no, there was not any art exhibition on this occasion, although... Well, to get this straight, I mean the canvas they put on the buildings that are being renovated. Nothing strange in that? I'm afraid you are wrong. What serves as the covering has the part of the renovated building painted (or rather photographed) on itself. It looks beautiful. Well, don't take my word for it, just check it yourself.

Here you have St. Mark's clock tower.

Treeless Venice?

Somebody had told us once (or we had read it somewhere) that Venice is nothing more than buildings and water. To see a tree there is something unique.

Thus mentally prepared off we went to explore the treeless Venice.

I must say that what we saw shocked us. Was that someone completely blind or something? Or maybe all he had achieved in Venice was to visit St. Mark's Square and go back inland?
