Town on Water

One of our last city trips was to a town, build on water and the first day we just discovered the areas around our hotel. We found a small square to relax, without all the other tourists.
Can you which water city we've visited?

    Tough one for me--the architecture doesn't tell me much, the steps suggest Venice. Burano maybe? Dunno.

    Those bold colors are indicative of Venice.

    I agree the colors give a strong indication.

    Here is another one, which should give you a good hint, for those who were here before. This massive defensive wall belongs to the Arsenale di Venezia. Unfortunately, you cannot visit the Arsenale but walking along the defensive wall is very impressive.
    And you find a lot of canals here as well. I'm still totally impressed by how fast the people go by boat in these tiny canals.

    One of the most known places in this city, the square San Marco. It was the whole day totally crowded and it was nearly impossible to take pictures without other people. But this scenery was so typical for this city. It was always totally crowded, everywhere.
    With an ND filter, it was possible to remove at least some of the crowd.

    This is the dome of the Basilica of Saint Mary of Health. I always feel impressed when walking through a church and this one is no exception. It has a wonderful dome and is one of the few places in this town who is quiet.
