The rooms are modern, comfortable and clean. The mini bar system is silly as you have to go to reception to buy a drink, plus have the bar in the lobby open it for you as the rooms do not have a bottle opener. Very annoying.

... particular went into complete meltdown mode, crying and stamping her feet so this wasn't a brilliant start.

He was fascinated by Moses' life story but it was hard to hold a proper conversation about it because ...
Today we started with a tour of the Doges Palace. I had booked a Secret Itineraries tour which was really interesting. It got us into secret rooms, the interrogation room, holding cells for prisoners and up into the attic space. After a fire the rulers got the boat builders in to rebuild in a hurry. The roof looks like an upturned boat hull and resulted in the largest room in Europe at the time. The whole building sways slightly to allow for ...
... Grand Canal for an hour or so. For dinner we decided to go to the square find a nice restaurant and listen to the duelling orchestras, but they don't serve dinner, we ended up at the Hard Rock Cafe which seemed to be the closest open place at 9.30pm. It was a relief to get out of there - the music was blaring so loud surely it must be an OH&S issue.
Leaving for Tuscany in the morning. Another exciting trip by train - guard the ...
