The Boardwalk

This quintessential part of Venice is two and a half miles of pedestrian-only walkway, a bracelet with stones made up of sporting courts, fortune-teller stalls, cafes, and small markets, all strung along a chain of bike and walking paths. High level basketball games are played for money and recognition, bodybuilders work out beneath the sun and girls glide by on skates. The positive atmosphere is buoyed up by the sounds of friendly bartering, calls for tourists to stop by stalls and buskers playing with their hats laid out for change.
