View on the Grand Canal in Venice during a sunny day

The Grand Canal | Venice, Italy

The Grand Canal is so to say the main road of Venice. It starts on the railway station and goes in form of an S-curve south to the St. Mark’s Square. You can also take the “bus” for that way which takes more or less one hour for the 4km trip. You’ll have a good sightseeing tour for a fair price and it’s great to experience Venice with a perspective from the water.

Rafting on Adige | Verona, Italy

I was a bit baffled when I crossed the Castel Vecchio Bridge (Ponte di Castel Vecchio or Ponte Scaligero) and saw rubber rafts on the Adige. Rafting in the middle of the city? It seems possible in Verona and is certainly also an interesting way to discover the town from a different angle.

Italian Architecture in Bergamo

This photo stands for so many reasons why I love Italy. Starting with the landscape: From up there in Bergamo you have perfect view over the mountains, the beginnings of the Alps. With clear sky our view seemed to be unlimited. And then there is this typical, Italian architecture. Is anybody not dreaming about living one day in such Italian mansion?

Sunrise in Desenzano del Garda | Italy

To get up at five in the morning when you’re travelling is hard, but it has its advantages. Often you find locations that look much better during sunrise than during sunset. And, usually, you find a pretty quiet environment without many people around.

From the top of Bergamo | Italy

Bergamo is the town that surprised me the most on all my trips through Italy. It is built in three layers, starting at the bottom of the hill with the new town (Città Bassa). With the bus you can go up to the old town (Città Alta) and here you will discover all the beauty of Bergamo. The view from the old city walls and the architecture within the walls are breathtaking.

Verona Skyline

Verona from Castel San Pietro | Italy

With only one day of shooting in Verona, we had to make it up to the Castel San Pietro to get the best view over the city. That one day was rather foggy, but you have to make the best of it. Since I wasn’t happy with the lighting conditions, I decided to play a bit more in the post-processing.

Verona, Italy during a sunny day

Verona Riverside | Italy

Verona is such a beautiful Italian city. Founded more than 2500 years ago, Verona is a sleeping beauty, crowded with masses of tourists from all over the world. That’s why I enjoy the photos now even more, as they display Verona in a calm way, much calmer than the actual stay there has been. The church in the background is called San Giorgio in Braida and one of many in this old city.

Venetian Cars, Venice | Italy Italy, Venice As you probably know, cars are a very rare thing in Venice. So instead you take these luxury gondolas to get from A to B. Just kidding, it’s obviously used more as a tourist rip off, but anyway, without them, Venice wouldn’t...
