but the intensity of the colours was surprising, as were the number of people taking 1000s of photos. Even photos of people taking photos.
Almost thirty years ago we'd visited Venice on chilly, drizzly winter days. We remembered only the dampness, the smells and the pigeons. Well actually, I only remembered the pigeons.
Venice was a surprisingly relaxed place start to our homeward journey.
Arrivederci a Venezia e salute a Londra.
Where we stayed
A basic but warm one bedroom apartment, in a handy location close to the train station. Definite bonus was that we didn't need to wheel our little bags too far over the cobblestone streets. Homeaway link CLICK HERE
Where we ate
We didn't find any fantastic places to recommend except for the Gelateria Nico, where the locals get their gelato CLICK HERE
