Video of the day: a sunny day in Venice

What does the city of Venice conjure up for you?

Is it gondalas slipping down the sleepy waterways or the butter-yellow facades of churches and crumbling museums?

Is it tourist ferries taxying visitors from island to island over the golden, sun-soaked lagoon at sunset? Or is it the hidden glimpses of daily life: waiters in tuxedos balancing glasses of Prosecco on a terrace; pink pansies growing in window boxes and the white linen drying in the breeze against rainbow-painted houses; a gondola gliding by?

Whatever it is, this colourful Vimeo video, entitled 'Around Venezia', should transport you right there.
