Posts about myself and History Walks Venice
Venice is normally a crowded place, and that is how most people know it. What most people don’t realise, however, is that important elements of Venice and its history are actually outside the city, in the surrounding lagoon.
Recently discovered frescoes in the church of Torcello, former seat of the bishop, attest the close connections early Venice had to the Caroligian empire.
I’m not doing any walks for a while here in Venice, as we’re all in corona virus lockdown. We’ll all need to sit this crisis out, and hope for the best. Hopefully, this will soon be over and we’ll be able to travel and meet again without fear.
