The Spring of Venice, Italy/ 水城威尼斯的春天,意大利

Coming back to Venice after the first Winter visit in 2013, I still remember the froggy canals and freezing wind blowing across the streets and alleys. The Gondolas were  mostly dominating and romantic songs were barely heard. Only the glinting lights through glass windows indicated signs of life in this city. Spring is absolutely milder and more temperate; trees, flowering and birds revitalize to bring colors and sounds; visitors from all over the world gathered in this small town for a new journey in their lives.

Venice is a city in northeastern Italy and the capital of the Veneto region. It is situated on a group of 118 small islands that are separated by canals and linked by over 400 bridges. Venice has been known as “La Dominante”, “La Serenissima”, “Queen of the Adriatic”, “City of Water”, “City of Masks”, “City of Bridges”, “The Floating City”, and “City of Canals”. The lagoon and a part of the city are listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Parts of Venice are renowned for the beauty of their settings, their architecture, and artwork.Venice is known for several important artistic movements—especially during the Renaissance period—has played an important role in the history of symphonic and operatic music, and is the birthplace of Antonio Vivaldi.
