Venice: off the beaten path is possible – part 2

My second "off the beaten path" tour of Venice took me to Sestriere Dorsoduro, Sestiere San Polo and Sestiere Santa Croce, the 3 city districts on the right side of the Grand Canal.

Miniature Venice

I have been to Venice for the week end and, before sharing 3 off the beaten path itineraries I prepared before going, that I will post in the next days, I decided to use a function of my camera that I have never tried before. It’s called “miniature function” which allows to focus on a subject and to capture the surroundings as if it was a cartoon or, actually, a miniature.

My last bike tour in Turin to the small “Pantheon”.

My latest bike tour of Turin took me to the edges of the municipality, just before heading to the Hunting Lodge of Stupinigi. In fact if you take a left before entering the long boulevard taking to the facade of Stupinigi, the bike lane takes you to another very beutiful place, often neglected and forgotten, even by the locals, which also is not included into any city tour I am aware of: The Mausoleum of the Beautiful Rose (la bela Rusin).

Turin: an amazing bike tour

Last time I wrote about a bike tour of Turin I described the amazing Park of Valentino and its attractions. This time I took a completely different route, 90% of which on reserved bike lanes which led me from my home, close to Piazza Statuto (Constitution square), one of the most important hubs of the city, straight to the Hunting Lodge of Stupinigi, just outside the city borders, 11 km to the south (6 miles).
