    Venice Day 1

    July 1, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    After arriving at the airport, going through customs, and getting our luggage, we headed to our pre-booked private water taxi, which brought us on a scenic ride into Venice, and onto the loading station of our hotel, The Hotel Ala. We were led up to our room, a triple, though while a little small, very cutely decorated. We immediately began to explore the city, specifically looking for a pasta shop called Dal Moro’s. We got lost, and gave up on finding it, heading to the next stop on our list, the Libreria Aqua Alta. Upon heading there though, I noticed the pasta place we had been looking for was right around the block. We headed over there. This is a to go pasta place, with personal sized boxes with your choice of sauce and toppings. We got two with pesto and bacon, which we were amazed at how good they were. After finishing, we went back to the Libreria Aqua Alta bookstore, which includes books on a gondola (in case of flooding), and a staircase made of books. We walked the RIva Degli Schiavoni, getting gelato along the way. I ordered a flavor called susina, which was plum. It was amazing! We walked around for a while, the headed back to the hotel restaurant, the Giglio for a light dinner. We each ordered an appetizer (I ordered a melon and prosciutto plate, which had the best prosciutto I’ve ever tasted) and split a gnocchi, which were very good. Overall, the meal was only ok, but we were very tired and, it was close to the hotel. We got in several hours late, but it was still a really good day!Read more

    Alilaguna nach Murano

    May 12, 2018 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    Nach dieser schönen Einfahrt und einem ausgedehnten Frühstück in der Sonne steht unser letzter Tagesausflug auf dem Programm. Wir buchen das Tagesticket für die Alilaguna und fahren zuallererst auf die Insel Murano. Die Alilaguna macht dabei sozusagen eine Fahrt rund um die Lagune, so dass wir allerhand normales Leben (Krankenboot, Leichenboot usw.), aber auch die zahlreichen Insel, z. Bsp. den Lido, die Friedhofsinsel unterwegs zu sehen kriegen.Read more
