Our trip to Venice
We decided to take the trip to Venice on short notice when:
We gathered all the information we could on Venice: books, brochures, web sites
You may have this sort of vision of Venice: gondolas and canals but here's the story and pictures we've discovered...
|First we take off on a rather nice day on "fly Baboo"|
|We fly over the alps...nice day|
|just a day ago Nick and I were skiing "down there"...(weather was not as good as this day)|
|we continue flying south over Genoa...what a port!|
We get off the plane and hop into a boat....and about 1 hour later we are nearing the St Mark's square.
There's the Campanile tower and Doge Palace and the five domes of the basilica in the background.
|We stop by the hotel...note the boat stop 'hotel entrance'.|
|and the nicely furnished Venetian style room|
|Our first glimpse of gondolas...pricy at $100 per half hour.|
|Then a nice dinner with a bottle of Barolo, lemon veal and squid-pasta.|
