VENICE FROM ABOVE!

VENICE FROM ABOVE!

FIVE WEEKS AND COUNTING TILL WE TOUCH DOWN IN THE CITY OF ROMANCE ~ CAN’T WAIT.

During the 2008 Venice Film Festival, Dan Kitwood, an entertainment photographer from Getty, took the opportunity to make some aerial images of Venice.

The “City of Water” is located in northeast Italy, spanning 118 islands in the Venetian Lagoon. Buildings in Venice were constructed on wood piles driven into the mud, sand and clay layers under the lagoon. Many of the buildings in Venice still sit on these piles driven more than a thousand years ago.
