0 Venice Trip: Doors, Windows, and Knockers

 There was a lot of really beautiful ironwork all over the islands.

 Other than the graffiti this entire doorway is amazing!

 I love the door and the arch!

 I'd read online that one area of Venice has Pulcinella door knockers.  I searched for them, but didn't really know what I was looking for... meanwhile, I found a lot of other interesting ones!

There's a common theme of knockers sticking their tongues out... is this for visitors or solicitors??

 You can get tough...

 Or strange...

 or a little creepy!


 Lion getting attacked by a serpent?

Aaaaand, one more lion for good measure!
