First room was smoky. Changed rooms which helped. Bike storage room was toxic. Big cracks in building and peeling paint in room. Far from center of city.

There was a woman literally carrying her dog as if it was a bag. At first we thought the dog was dead cos it was just hanging there but it eventually moved. Some people are just strange! Across the Piazza and we then navigated the streets of Venice bound for our next destination. getting around Venice on foot can ...
... more challenging. We did find one little Trattoria and had cappuchino (typical and delicious!) and some wonderful Bruschetta. I snapped a few photos around the rest of the area as we wandered. We did go into Palazzo Della Ragione, a 2 storey loggia built in 1219, housing an enormous wooden horse, as well as hundreds of floor to ceiling 15th century frescoes. Of course, as usual the pictures just don't do things justice, but I ...
