Statue in Campo Santo Stefano in San Marco, Venice photo

Most tourists flock to Piazza San Marco, the bridge of sighs and the Ponte di Rialto in Venice. But there is a lot more to Venice. It’s a city of neighbourhoods and piazza’s. Whilst not really a piazza, Campo Santo Stefano is large enough for most of us to think otherwise. Its a short stroll from the madness of Piazza San Marco and yet it feels like it could be in another city all together, so quiet and peaceful but still with lots of locals eating and drinking, shopping and stopping for a chat. This fine fellow, bathed in the early morning light, is Niccolo Tommaseo, one of the leaders of the revolt against the Austrians in 1848 and a advocate for a united Italy. 1/400 @ f9 85mm ISO100
