    Road to Rome

    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!

    Had a driving day from Lucerne to Innsbruck on Saturday with a short stop in Lichtenstein. Tiny little place with on Main Street and many tour buses. Got to Innsbruck and went for Tyrolean dinner and show. Yodeling and singing and dancing, a lot of foot stamping and leg slapping by the men and twirling by the women.Read more

    Road to Rome

    A walking tour of Venice at 8:30 led by a local guide and you could tell that she loves her city. It is so expensive to stay here that she moved to another island close by, Lido? She was very spry and fit and Phil told us she is 82. That’s what climbing all those steps does! We went on
    back streets and ended up in St Mark’s square. Then took a boat to glass making place. Beautiful. The bowl I liked was 600 Euros. Did spend your birthday money Pat and bought a pair of earrings. Had a bit of free time and then took a boat to Burano island, not so busy as Venice. Our tour guide, Phil has a tendency to ramble on and on which makes one very sleepy. A lot of history which is good but maybe too many details. He does speak Italian and French so is able to translate which he did at the winery yesterday. Had a late lunch....lots of fish dishes. Risotto with fish, lasagna with calamari which I don’t like but ate some of it, 4 shrimp and fruit and almond brittle.
    A little nap and at 7 o’clock John and I went out for gelato and more walking. I like gelato but not like you Pat.
    We have an early start tomorrow to get bags and us over to the mainland.
    Heather wondered about garbage....we could see and smell them removing garbage this morning.
