My parents are heading to Venice next month, from where they'll be cruising around the Greek Isles and a few other European ports. So, for mum, here are lots more pictures from our days in Venice last year plus a few notes! And for everyone else, a warning, LOTS of pictures ;)
Sienna and I bought some special masks here, and had a lovely time and conversation with the shop assistant there. It's called La Bauta, they have three stores. The one nearest the Rialto and San Marco is the one we went to, it is at Sotoportego de le Acque, near a bridge and around the corner under a dark walkway.
This restaurant was my favourite food discovery during our entire trip, but we only had a chance to go one time, as we tried it the day before we left. The tables full of gondoliers on their lunch break were my first clue ;) Antico Calice on Calle degli Stagneri 5228 (not far from the Rialto bridge).
Our view sitting on the steps of station Santa Maria Lucia on our last day, waiting until it was time to catch the train to Firenze.
