I know I know, I am a tourist too, but I like to be in the minority, you know, lost among the "locals" and trying to melt in the local life. Venice was like Barcelona, overcrowded. Sometimes in a street you just had to walk one behind the other, no way to go faster... bah.
I soon bought a map and tried to take sideways, that helped. I …
... was with its shops surrounding it. There were some fantastic items in the window displays although none had price tags - so on the rule of 'if you have to ask, you can't afford it' we didn't purchase anything!
Paul was busy taking in the scenery in true James Bond style we had a look where some of the scenes were filmed - or so we thought. Unfortunately, Paul wasn't wearing a suite so it wasn't quite the same!!!!!!!
The city was beautiful with all the rivers ...
... Kamie. We got one last gelato - a tiny cup of tiramisu flavor. It was good but not my favorite. I'll try mint and pistachio again tomorrow- but Kamie will have to get his own pistachio because he nearly ate all of mine today - he loved it too! Anyway, this evening we caught a train coming back to Mestre and now we are about to get a full 6 to 8 hours of sleep...at least we hope so!
Tomorrow, a full day in Venice... and more gelato!! ...
... is especially apparent from the style of the beautiful golden mosaics that illustrate various bible stories in the interior of the basilica. The basilica is also famous for being the resting place of St. Mark's remains, which are kept under the main altar. Venturing back into the square, we immediately got in our next line for the bell tower, or "Campanile". No available stairs this time, just an elevator. Given how tired my legs and feet ...
... was pretty tiny. I walked in and saw a toilet in the side corner, but it had a faucet and a tiny drain instead of a flusher. I stared at my friend in astonishment and said, "So, is this our toilet? What the heck happens when you have to poo? Where is it gonna go?" After further investigation, we discovered that it was actually a wash basin for laundry and the real toilet with a flusher and all, was just around the corner, behind the shower.

TravelPod Member ReviewsPrimavera Hotel Mestre
this hotel is in Mestre, 20 min by bus from centre Venice: makes it affordable! there is a nice good restaurant, staff is friendly, and besides being a hotel they also rent "shared" rooms like in a hostel. More a hotel atmosphere though, no kitchen where I can cook, but wifi. The busstop is very close, easy. A perfect solution for an affordable stay in Venice.
