On my flight from Amsterdam to Naples last summer, the plane flew over the Alps into Italy, past the lovely town of Bolzano (Bozen), then along the Adige valley (the home of the gorgeous Valpolicella wines) to Verona and past the stunning historical treasure that is Venice . It was a bit hazy but I managed to get some decent shots of the city, the islands and the Venetian lagoon.
Venice’s Marco Polo International Airport (top left in the first photo), the industrial areas and the port on the mainland, as well as the bridge that links Venice to the mainland, can clearly be seen in the first photo.
A gap in the haze gave me a better view of the city in the lagoon as we flew past. The S-shaped Grand Canal was unmistakable. Can you spot the whitish silhouette of San Marco Square in the second or third photos?
