Where in the World (279)

This week finds me in New Zealand’s North Island in the city of Tauranga (store that away as it is likely to appear in a future “Where in the World…”).

Last week was an unusual view of a city currently suffering from over-tourism. The tower in the background is the campanile on one of the world’s most famous piazzas, St Mark’s Square. An additional clue, by way of confirmation, are the domes to the left of the tower. These are from St Mark’s Cathedral. Both these can be found in Venice.

Venice and not a gondola or canal in sight

Once again this post is pre-scheduled so you will have to wait for the list of winners.

The city this weeks rarely seen from this angle but nevertheless there are several clues to its identity. One in particular is often seen, in close up, on postcards and guidebooks.
