Venice and its empire

Spent two weeks sailing along the Adriatic and eastern Mediterranean, basically following the tracks of the Venetian Empire visiting Venetian  strongholds such as Hvar, Korcula, Zadar, and Split  in Croatia,  Kotor in Montenegro, Chania in Crete as well as holdouts to the Venetians such as Dubrovnik in Croatia. Here is a random sample of photos of a journey that began and ended in Venice.
