With Suzanne Palmer
My parents took me to Venice as a wide-eyed teenager twice. On the second visit we approached la Serenissima from the sea on a hydrofoil. The image of this city literally coming out of the sea had a great and lasting impact on my imagination.
After many visits to Venice through the years, some with friends, some with family members, my fascination with the city has not waned.
I always make a point of taking new visitors to see St Mark’s Square in the moonlight, paying homage to the city that likes to be admired for its great beauty and unrivalled architecture.
I, like many other visitors to Venice, worry about the ‘sinking’ problem. Yet this is a city that has always been able to get out of ‘near misses’, able to reinvent itself in order to survive and become successful.
This is my personal take on the city.
