Venice

Everything that I’d read or seen or been told about Venice was true. It’s a simply stunning place. The arrival into Venice was punctuated by a lovely warm sidelight although I missed the very first rays. We walked for hours through the narrow streets, lovely little shops, architecture, cafes and did I mention the canals….
St Mark’s square came second in terms of people per square metre to the Rialto Bridge but made up for it in terms of grandeur. A short gondola ride through the canals and lunch in a small intimate restaurant topped it off nicely. I’d have liked more time here for sure.
