Arrivals, Santa Lucia Station

While many other parts of Venice have often been compared to stage sets, the railway station of Santa Lucia has a distinctly cinematic air. Having served as the setting for so many famous comings and goings in movies of all eras, maybe it's impossible for a railway station anywhere in the world to strike us in any other way. Whatever the reason, Santa Lucia is a good place to people-watch on a cold winter Saturday afternoon: the traditional setting for the start of so many new dramatic episodes, acts, adventures.
