Today was Regatta day in Venice. I've always wanted to witness one. Instead, I watched it via webcam today (there's a link to this Grand Canal webcam on the right). Not quite the same as being there. The photo is one that I took from the webcam. Any eyewitnesses?
For more of a discussion about the location of the webcam, go to the Slow Travel forum.
