Dogs are everywhere in Venice--even on boats. We saw this boat (and dog) coming toward us as we were crossing a small bridge, and Durant snapped a photo after the boat emerged from under the bridge and continued down the canal.
The monument, designed by the legendary Venetian architect Carlo Scarpa, incorporates a reclining statue of a female World War II resistance fighter amid a series of stone steps. The monument is just beyond the seawall on the waterfront. Look for the bronze partisan woman at low tide: When the tide is high, the statue is likely to be partly or fully submerged.
Maggie will arrive in Venice on January 30 for a three-month stay, and we'll be publishing regular updates with photos and videos--including a "Where's Maggie?" segment for Venetophiles who'd like to test their knowledge and memories of Venetian landmarks.
