Simploring 2018 (77) Venesha

For my simploring tour on Sunday, September 2nd, I selected Venesha from scoop.it SL Destinations.

Venesha is the home of Hera (zee9), an adult homestead, her gothic interpretation of Venice. The landmark description defines it as “a place to come hang out, chill out and enjoy the place and its facilities in whatever way takes your fancy.”

Venesha overview

The landing is at the dock, the gondolas are TP points for moving around the sim if you don’t like to explore on foot. At the landing point you also get a notecard with some basic rules, including some background about Venesha: “This is my rather Adult, Gothic interpretation of Venice. If you have been around SL for a few years you may recall a place called Venexia. Well this is a stripped down homestead version of that. And yes I built the original, nuff said on that subject.

I’ve never been to Venexia, hence I can’t compare Venesha to it. But for sure I can say that Venesha is an impressive rebuilt of Venice in Second Life, in particular if you take into acount that it is a homestead and therefore prims are short.

Impressions of Venesha (3) – the piazza and the cafe

Not all buildings are furnished, some are just houses with a fitting texture outside, but when you walk through Venesha or take a row boat at the grand canal you get a really good impression about the particular atmosphere of Venice.

Impressions of Venesha (4) – the clubs and baths

In the above overview map I marked the places of interest which I visited. These buildings are furnished and I recomend a view inside. The adult part is at at the club and baths, between the club and the theatre is a prison. The interior is selected with care and fits well to the surrounding, elegant and luxurious with a touch of decadence. The Basilika is another gem you should miss to have a look at.

Venesha can be a place just to take pictures but I can imagine that it is as well a place for role play. I enjoyed my visit a lot. I liked walking through the narrow alleys and the luxurious interior of the buildings. Very well done! Thank you Hera (zee9) for providing your place to the public!
