The journey from the airport into Venice is not the same unless you arrive via water taxi.
No such thing as a speed limit here!
Our arrival was very early into Venice, but after a full nights sleep on the plane, we were ready and raring to get into some looking at stuff.
Please enjoy the pictorial essay of Venice….
When in Venezia, one must always drink their macchiato standing up at the bar rather than sit on a chair, especially in the square – chairs and service = mucho euros.
Bridge of Sighs…. who wore their chins the best?
Check these out – they’re lollies!!!
We walked for bloody miles and miles today – stopping for a much needed birra every now and then…
We walked all the way around to the Peggy Guggenheim Museum and crossed the Academia Bridge.
Then it was back to our hotel for a freshen up ready for dinner.
This was the view from our mini balcony.
Dinner was at a lovely spot right on the Grand Canal with lots of opportunity for people and boat watching…. and Aperol Spritz sipping!
As it was so fricking hot – neither of us had appetites, so a mezzo plate of parma ham and cheese was the call of the evening.
Thank you Venezia – Day one, over and out!
