The Readers of Venice

Our first twenty-four hours in Venice have been filled with readers. Even in this city of wonders alive with enchantment, we've found residents riding the vaporetti and lounging in piazzas, losing and finding themselves between the covers.

Join us in spotting readers in one of the world's most romantic cities.
