    9/5/10 Venice 2

    September 5, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    Couldn't decide what pictures to post so I'm posting twice. San Marcos Square is such an unbelievable place. Didn't go inside the Basilica as the wait was more than an hour, but got some good photos. Wish everyone could see Venice!

    Venice + answer to trivia question

    September 12, 2019 in Italy ⋅ 🌙 17 °C

    This morning we slept in a bit, had breakfast and then took the bus to Venice. We walked around looking at the different shops with masks and little souvenirs and looked at the gondolas. The gondola drivers had the black and white striped shirts and the hats with ribbon around it just like in movies. There were canals everywhere and there were lots of tourists around. Some houses had doors that if you walked through them, you'd fall into the water. We just walked around getting lost taking photos for the whole day. We found a park to have lunch and took a break from walking, and later in the afternoon, we bought some giant meringues to share. We also stopped in a chocolate shop that had a chocolate fountain and lots of delicious chocolate and cookie samples that the employees encouraged us to taste. It was super hot out, 27 degrees so we tried to walk in the shade near the canals. There were also lots of glass shops because there's an island that specializes in glass making.

    August 14, 2015 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    Its an early start as we check out of Verona and set off for Venice... Everyone (except Travis) has sore bellies (Sukis theory is that everyone has O.D'ed on wine and cheese) and is a little cranky from the travelling. The boys and the girls split up: the boys take the car back to the airport and the girls check in to the accommodation. The accommodation is a gorgeous little apartment right in the heart of Venice so we are back on track! Once everyone is reunited we explore Venice, a spot of shopping, picking up some lovely Murano glass pieces and most importantly hit Happy Hour- 5euro spritzers with a free canape buffet! Everyone is happy :-) We end the evening sitting on the pier drinking red wine and whiskey out of plastic cups and chatting the night away... Its our last night with James and Steph and we have had an awesome time :-)

    The next morning we say goodbye to James and Steph as they set off for their morning flight. We spend our last day in Venice on Burano island- its a 40min ferry ride over to the quaint little island, well known for its picturesque colourful houses and lovely lace related items. The vibe is very relaxing- very difference to Venice and was definitely worth the trip over.

    We head out to Treviso for our last night in Italy, in preparation for our early morning flight tomorrow.. next stop Parree! (Paris)

    Certaldo to Venice

    October 2, 2017 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    We said goodbye to Glen and Jeff today - they were leaving to fly from Bologna to Paris to catch a flight back to Australia - and we were heading off to Venice. I had calculated that we would have time to stop in Padova for a few hours, but that didn't quite work out.

    We did get to redeem the horrible Autogrill experience we had on our trip back from Cinque Terre and managed to find a gigantic Autogrill. We had read a review where the lady was waxing lyrical about how great the Autogrills were (giant roadside restaurants/fuel stop). We only stopped for fuel and the loo, but the food at least looked edible this time around.

    We spent a good chunk of the journey designing out new front yard and fancy chicken coop with room for 5 chickens that we are going to build when we get back home, including the yabbie breeding pond, the productive garden and research on some grape vines. Short of getting a goat, I think we have just managed to channel Tom and Barbara from The Good Life (1970s British comedy for the youngsters). We don't have a "Margo" living next door, which will be helpful to the construction ideas coming to fruition.

    Once we got across the bridge to Venice itself, we parked the car. Having rationed our gear into a backpack and our day packs, we decided to ditch the idea of spending a fortune on the vaporetto, and walked the 30 minutes to our new AirBnB accommodation. It was an easy walk and given we will do the same to get back to the car, we have also saved ourselves €60. Bargain!

    We ditched the gear and headed straight out for a walk along Fondamenta Zattere al Ponte Longo which starts pretty much just outside our accommodation. Our front gate adjoins a lane next to a gate onto the campus of Università Ca' Foscari so we had a bit of a short cut through to get to the water.
