Having left the tour, we begin to explore on our own. Our fist destination in the Rialto Bridge, for a gondola ride.
Navigation is very simple, just follow the Rialto signs. This is a bit of a shock, organisation in Italy.

Saturday morning came too early, but we powered through by having breakfast at the café next to the hotel and then heading again to San Marco by vaporetto, the water taxi. The vaporetto took us under the Rialto Bridge and past centuries-old homes that open directly onto the canal. Along the ...
