Venice is one of the most famous cities in the world and it is entirely possible to march through the streets like a herd of cattle, admiring the most iconic sights of the city. If, however, you dare to venture from the main trails and allow yourself to get lost in the quirky, twisted streets, you will find yourself drawn to delights that you could otherwise not have noticed. First you will hear the quiet, the lack of motor vehicles, the peace that is so rare in cities across the world. Then everything else will follow. If you look hard enough, you start to find that every post box can be a face: one winking, another laughing, each carrying a real human, emotion. You just have to have a little imagination to make it happen. Who knows what other simple delights you will find in the city once you start looking at it in this way.
