Off to Venice

Tuesday morning we head out for a 190 mile drive to Venice with a stop at Padua to view St Anthony Church (I’ve lost track of how many churches we have seen and we are not done yet).

Then onto Venice where you take a water taxi into the city. Where after checking into our hotel, which is right on the Grand Canal, we go for a gondola ride.

Here is our majestic hotel room.

After our gondola ride Jim and I took off walking the streets, alleyways just meandering. We came across this secluded little tavern so decided to stop for a little vino, which we ended up eating dinner there, it was very good. It turned out to be a quite pleasant evening.

After dinner we just walked around trying to find our way back to the hotel. There are so many alleys, streets that it’s impossible to use a map-just keep walking and eventually you’ll figure it out. Venice is just fascinating to me with no cars, it’s just one big labyrinth.

Another full day is done.
