Angelina's Life in Venice - April 23 - Santa Elena

Sat., April 23, 2011 - Santa Elena
Another quiet spot in Venice is Santa Elena. Here is the residential, non-touristy side of Venice. There is a large park, a few restaurants, and beautiful sunsets over San Marco.
There is more space for kids to play in Santa Elena, so it is very common to see kids playing soccer, the favorite Italian sport, in the squares. Watch Nico control the soccer ball. I bet he can score!

(I have done 2 posts today. Don't forget to read the one below.)


  1. Beautiful romantic looking building (restaurant?), and I love the boy playing soccer in bare feet.

  2. I think it was an apartment building. There was a nice flowered balcony on top.
