A long walk along the waterfront avails many visuals, this quite extravagant statue especially. Holding up well considering it's exposure to the elements

A lot of people just walk by it and another group of people do not even know it exists. I like it because of the location. It is definitely worth a photo but do not go out of your way.

You will see this ignored statue as you walk by to board the ferry to Murano. Thousands pass by it and even I didn't notice it till we were returning on the Vaporetto back from Murano.

Walking down Riva Degli Schiavoni we found the monument of Vittorio Emanuel II. It is right on the water front and easy to find. We had a coffee near by before we took a boat ride to Murano & Burano

Came across this lovely monument while strolling along the waterfront. It's truly impressive. It was a hot day and with the sea breeze just cooling things down it was a welcome relief to sit at it's feel :)

Easily spotted once you walk from Piazza San Marco and go to the back... the statue stands proudly on the street.

The monument in Rome is huge and no one could miss it but although this statue is large no one seemed to be taking much notice of it, except my husband who took a photograph.

Castello is the largest of the six sestieri
(districts), and the only one not facing onto the
Grand Canal. More than half of Castello is situated
within Arsenale, the naval base, which occupies over
one-fifth the area of Venice. This gentrified maritime
neighbourhood feels busy but casual. Castello’s side
streets are laid back, with small boats lining canals
criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a
