Road to RomeJune 3, 2018 in Italy ⋅ 🌙 22 °C
Had a busy day leaving Innsbruck and driving to Venice. Stopped at a small winery Alba Rossa that makes prosecco which is sparkling wine which we think of as being sweet but John said it was dry. Lovely little place. It was their first English speaking group and there was lots of translating bu our tour guide who speaks Italian. They had made home made salami, many cubes of different kinds of cheeses, breads and what I think of as pinwheel fancy sandwiches with cream cheese and roasted peppers! Yummy. We got off the main road for quite awhile and was wonderful to see northern Italy countryside. Views were breathtaking but a picture never captures it. Bus dropped us off when we got to Venice and took water taxi to hotel in Venice. Our guide keeps impressing upon us the extra things we have on this trip and this is one of them “we are staying in Venice”.
Had a gondola ride. A break and then a 4 course dinner and a ride in a special water taxi just for our group. It was impressive!Read more
