    We made our way to our accommodation Alloggi Santa Sofia, Cannaregio 4183. This is the third time we have stayed here. It is great accommodation and on the main street to St Mark Square. We dropped off our overnight backpacks and headed off for Gelati, a walk around the sites and exciting and busy streets. Pizza, cannelloni and red wine at an outdoor restaurant and St Mark’s Square at night.Read more

    Fondaco dei Tedeschi

    July 22, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ☁️ 31 °C

    Wie in vielen Ländern und Städten waren auch deutsche Kaufleute in Venedig vertreten. Das Fondaco dei Tedeschi war einst der Sitz einer Gemeinschaft deutscher Kaufleute. Der Name "Fondaco" wird vom arabischen Wort "Funduk" abgeleitet und bedeutet soviel wie Warenlager. In der Medina der tunesischen Stadt Houmt Souk auf der Insel Djerba existieren noch einige "Fondouk", wie sie dort genannt werden.Read more

    T Fondaco dei Tedeschi Terrace, Venice

    September 14, 2018 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    Last time we were in Venice we found out about being able to visit the terrace on top of the elite shopping centre, T Fondaco dei Tedeschi. Unfortunately we found out towards the end of our time in Venice and when we tried to visit on the last morning the line was so long we didn’t get to check it out.

    This almost happened again this visit. We tried to visit in the morning but when we got there we found out it was closed for a private event. We were told the event would finish at midday but when we returned it was still going and the security guy had no idea when it would finish. We waited for bit and then decided to try again later if we had time.

    At the end of the day on our way home we thought we would give it one last try - SUCCESS. We were finally able to check out the view of Venice from the terrace. Unfortunately due to the heat it was very hazy and the view wasn’t as clear as we would have liked, but it was still an amazing view - a very close up view of the famous Rialto Bridge. Our persistence paid off.

    The actual shopping centre is also pretty cool, from the red escalators to the amazing internal view of the four floors. The other cool thing was actually the entrance to the terrace. They have started created patterns on the floor using postage stamps which they have then added a clear floor over the designs. It would be amazing to see it when the project is finished. It was great to finally get to visit the terrace.

    Merceria II Aprile I

    June 8, 2015 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    Dann sind wir die Merceria II Aprile langgelaufen. Man kann sagen, dass dies die Shoppingmeile ist. Hier findet man auch den Disney Store und eine Hard Rock Café. Auf Venedig gibt es nämlich sogar zwei. In diesem hier habe ich mir ein blaues T-Shirt mit venezianischen Masken darauf gekauft.Read more

    Merceria II Aprile II

    June 8, 2015 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    Wir sind die Strasse entlang und nach ein paar Mal abbiegen haben wir schließlich den Markusplatz erreicht.

    Der Tarif für eine Gondelfahrt ist ganz schön heftig. 80 €, zwar für bis zu 6 Personen, aber wenn man dies als Pärchen machen möchte ist es ganz schön teuer!Read more
