It's been a fine few days in Venice with amazing numbers of tourists all looking for an authentic bargain in a city where there aren't any.....So, at 6 this morning I decided to take a short stroll before the crowds came out. A hour and a half later I returned after abandoning the stroll for a brisk walk. Photos below. Open to see captions.
