    Home time

    September 15, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    We had some time before we caught our plane so headed to the naval museum. Very interesting as a lot of the history of Venice is linked to the sea. Heaps of great models and actual large boats from the past. Then is was off to the airport for the journey home.Read more

    Venice

    September 14, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    Back on land! We dropped our bags and headed off for Murano and Burano. Burano was an absolute highlight - less busy than Venice with brightly coloured houses! In the square some fresh seafood was being cooked up! Later on, we met up with our fellow cruisers for dinner before going our separate ways tomorrow.Read more

    Venice

    September 7, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    As we wandered the streets we came across some great shops! Philip bought some great linen and then we continued on to the Jewish Ghetto - a small island all the Jews were contained on during the war. A final Italian lunch and then off to board our ship!Read more

    Venice

    September 6, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    I was feeling a bit seedy so missed the tour of Doges palace and met the others at Cafe Florian, the oldest cafe in Europe! The rain set in for the afternoon so we stayed in and relaxed.

    Limone

    September 4, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    After an early morning hike to the midway point up a mountain (some of the party wanted to go all the way 🙄!?) we hopped on the ferry to Limone which used to be a huge lemon growing area. As it’s steep cliffs it was all terraced and to protect the trees from the cold in winter, there were wooden frames for glass panels. After a delicious pizza for lunch back to Riva Del Garda for a laze in the sun and swim.Read more

    Lake Garda

    September 3, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    We travelled to Lake Garda, about 3hrs away. The bottom of the lake is wide and Riva Del Garda where we were headed is at the top which narrows right down. Along the way we stopped for lunch and checked out a garden complete with a battleship! Riva Del Garda has a lovely piazza on the river and great shops 😊Read more

    Lenno

    September 1, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    A day discovering the beautiful Lake Como! We visited Villa Balbianello and then caught the ferry across to Bellagio and another villa and garden there. Another hot day so it was great to get back to our accommodation for a swim!Read more
