2 days in romantic Venice.
Had a lovely time.
Venice was much nicer than I imagined, we had a midnight Gondola ride, really nice meal overlooking the grand canal, spend some time at the Lido where there is a huge sandy beach, we also met some Londoners on the last night and stayed out drinking with them until quite late.
On now to Lake Garda.
So today we had the whole day in Venice, a place that I personally think is great..Dan think's it's a big city. I think it has it's charms. We hopped on again to a private taxi at Tronchetto after a 9am departure. Cruised down the Canal with some commentry from Calvin and photos...there were sailing boats, seriously expensive boats with names like …
The sleeping in plan was going well this morning, until some stupid automated wake up call came in at 8.30am. We ignored this and kept sleeping until the alarm at 11.30am. After a slow get up, we got ready, packed and had lunch at the Self service. I wasn't too hungry so had a greek Salad, Dan had Spag Bol and we went back to the room to play Phase …
... museum pass unlike Accademia so nice not to have to pay. It is a museum of 17th and 18th century Venetian paintes and admittedly many of the second tier artists are on display here. There are some Cantalletto's and Tiepolo's but many were the artists for the masses. Ones for the Grand Tour visitors or in the home's of the wealthy so nice but many just not that great. It was enjoyable though and some of the works were memorable.
Gesuati a church on the waterfront of the Canale ...
And it is time to make our way back to Fenton.
Got a quick stop in Paris then the long flight back to DTW.
But it was not without its fun parts starting with trying to go to sleep at 9pm the night before the flight because we needed to be at the airport at 5am (the selfies are the Venice streets at 4:10am). A bus ride off the island to the airport and a very bumpy ride over the Alps, one that Kort had to sleep through not to throw up from.
