Venezia è Bella

“But maybe every life looked wonderful if all you saw was the photo albums.” ~ Liane Moriarty, What Alice Forgot

As I had mentioned, I finally had the chance to upload my photos from Venice – over a thousand!  I will spare everyone from that, however, and will only post a select few.

Our holiday was nothing short of fabulous.  It was a quick holiday – only five nights and six days, but we managed to pack in a lot during that short time.

We arrived at the airport in the early afternoon and took a shuttle bus into Venice.  Upon arriving in Venice, we had to take a water taxi (vaporetto) to our stop, Rialto Mercato.  We stayed at a very charming AirBnb apartment near the famous Rialto Bridge.

Throughout our stay in Venice, we managed to take a few guided tours that included St. Mark’s Basilica, the islands of Murano, Burano, and Torcello, and a simple guided tour around the heart of Venice.  G even met a famous Venetian painter and bought a few of his paintings.

We also took a day trip to Milan and to Lake Como.  My only regret is that we didn’t have enough time to see more sights.

  1. Hi Nova, I enjoyed all the fabulous pictures and glad to hear you had such a great time. Your daughter pictured with the gondolier reminded me of the Gilbert & Sullivan show I was in many ago – The Gondoliers – set in Venice. Best wishes
