Venice – Great Place to Visit, No Place for a Zombie Apocalypse

There’s nothing quite like a long alley with multiple darkened crevasses along the way to get the old heart rate up…

Halloween is over.  The candy has been eaten, the jack-o-lanterns smashed, the scary decorations taken down. 

I hope there isn’t a hole in the ceiling any where…

What few pumpkins escaped carving now begin the morbid count down to their ultimate demise as Thanksgiving dinner pumpkin pies.   Tis the season.

Vino, pasta and zombies anyone?

But should you get the urge to revisit this spookiest of holidays before next October 31st rolls around, may I suggest an alternative?

Kind of makes you wonder what’s around the curve. I hope it’s not a dead end…

 Take a night time stroll through the darkened streets of Venice proper. 

I wonder what’s under the water…

 While she is relatively safe from a human perspective, her dark nooks and even deeper crannies make one thing abundantly clear.

Only vertically challenged ghouls need apply to haunt these nooks and crannies. Zombie pigeons anyone?

 This is no place to be during a zombie apocalypse…

In reality, the scariest thing that actually might happen in Venice is a drunken tumble into a canal. But don’t judge me…

    Soooooo…How the heck did you get all the natives to disappear while you took these spooky pictures? Also, what happens when two uh….”stout” people meet in those alleys?

    Jon – the locals always disappear at sunset… easier to hide from the vampires that way, lol! Actually, I just lucked out on most of these pictures. In fact, the one the one that curves actually ends at one of the busiest tourist areas just southwest of the Rialto Bridge. It’s like walking through Walden Pond and ending up in Times Square! As for “stout” people passing in the night, in some of these, someone will just have to beep and back up. 🙂

    Sara, getting lost was half of the fun. I kept thinking that if I got lost enough, I could stay! 🙂
